Gone Fishing

Gone Fishing is the name of Lindsays Image that I have used for the new challenge at LEJ DESIGNS-"Monochromatic".My Dad loved beach fishing and we had this song played at his funeral four years ago.The humanist gave me the CD afterwards but haven't been able to face listening to it.So why use the image ?????because I left the card until last minute as have been babysitting grandaughters on half-term and their Mum and Dad at work,I then realised I lost all Lindsays stored images when memory stick broke and printer inks not arrived yet,luckily I found this image at the bottom of my box of images.I used promarkers,craft mag freebie paper,and a couple of dies,all coloured cardstock from Papermill Direct.
