It's the start of the patterned papers to add to your collection of colour basic. There are two more patterned packs to go...and then it's the Elements that go with this biggie paper stack.
But first.......Charlie is getting the hang of his training..yes, really!!! 3 weeks down the line and he is starting to listen!!! That in itself is quite an achievement. I think I meantioned that I was using the method that is outlined in the book Dog Whisper by Jan Fennell. Basically it helps you sort out in the dogs mind which one of you is higher up the pack order. OK, so Charlie was convinced it was him...but he is rethinking the pecking order at last and it seems perhaps I could have the makings of an Alpha female after all!!!
I have had some tremendous advice and support from Lesley Harris who teaches the Amichien Bonding method...that woman is a star!!! She has had an answer for all Charlie's little games and tricks..and believe me that boy has staying power plus loads of tricks in his repertoire. He has tried me out in so many ways but he seems to have decided that perhaps I'm not as stupid as I look, perhaps......just perhaps.... he could let me run the show.....but we shall see, one of us has to make the decisions..let's just hope it's me!!
I had some fun last night playing with one of my photographs from last year. It was a lovely rose but the leaves were really covered in black spot...not the most pleasant of looks. So, I decided to try altering the photo in the hope of playing down the grotty leaves. Somehow the leaves just help make the photo now...it's such a contrast between the rose and the blighted leaves and I love that contrast....beauty and the imperfect sitting just next to each other.
This is what I came up with. I like it..what do you think?
Now for the first of the patterned papers. This pack is full of pinks, purples, and greens with a touch of chocolate. It should go well with the earlier plain papers you have collected.

Well, it's that time again...time to say bye until tomorrow. Stay warm and stay safe!!
