This week at Take a Word the theme is OLD FASHIONED. I found this image in Google Images and coloured it from its original sepia. The flowers, background and planter are from a collection by Lauren Bavin.
I found the original black and white image at Graphics Fairy, added colour and placed him on a scanned dictionary page. I called him "Jerry Poppins" because he is in the same pose that Mary Poppins is often seen in.
This week at the Muses the challenge theme is QUOTES. I have chosen "Expect the Unexpected" although I seem to be a person who always expects the worst! Background from Lorie Davison, image Finecrafted Designs, balloons Googled..
