Gone Fishin'

Our theme is 
and we are sponsored by 
for my card this week I chose

I love this card starter.  I chose the brown tone for my card.

Added a computer generated sentiment and the fish.
I used a tapestry image as a frame.

I love silhouettes and this one reminds me of my dad.
He loved fishing.  In fact, that is how my family spent their
vacations.  We would camp along the river, no park campsite for us.
Sometimes there would be several of my aunts and uncles
along with us.  I'm from a big family of fishermen.  I remember
daddy would go out and catch breakfast while mom heated
up the old cast iron skillet.  We would have crispy fried trout for 
our breakfast.   I got really good at picking out the bones.
I think I must have had one of the best childhoods ever.

I like to fly fish and catching trout is such fun. This is a marvelous silhouette, Jeanette. I like the brownish one best and then the greenish one next.

It's funny, I've been feeling like I want to go fishing this summer. I think I finally found a good spot to try. We'll be going to Jackson Lake in the Angeles National Forest. And i know my Grandpa will be with me.
