Love this Carol - am a tad biased though (just take a look at the DT cards for next weeks challenge!!) This is such a gorgeous image and can look so different by using various papers behind it. I bet your 'young' son loved this one - such a good idea to go with a Norfolk Broads holiday as well.

Thank you so much for joining us over at the OSAAT challenge this week, lots of luck to you.
