Gone Fishin'

Challenges

ABC - A is for August
Totally Papercrafts (28) - By The Sea
Secret Crafter (95) - It's A Man's World
One Stop Craft (92) - Summer Fun
Stamptacular (71) - Boys

Here is the last one for today. This is a very special one as it is for my eldest son's birthday which is TODAY!!! HAPPY BIRTHDAY SHAUN! I won't tell you how old he is as it makes me feel ancient! Put it this way, he ain't gonna see 40 again...

The image has been enlarged on my computer before colouring with Promarkers and chalk. The little 'gone fishing' charm has been made using clear shrink plastic and the little fish have just been coloured with glitter glue. Hope you like this one too.

Right off to have dinner with the family to celebrate.
