Whales and dolphins

Good morning everyone, I hope all is well in your world and the snow has cleared off!
Thank you for all the well wishes for my first physio session. From what other peeps had said I was expecting it to be grim but not at all, I got through it fine and was very interested when the physiotherapist showed me on a skeleton shoulder just what is wrong with mine. I find that when I know what is causing the pain I can better understand it.  'Twas a good session and I am hopeful of a phased return to work in a couple of weeks (fingers crossed :o)
Anyhow, on to my card for today


I created the backing by embossing 160gsm thin card with M-Bossability A4 folder then brayering with a Fiskars textured brayer and a Big and Juicy inkpad. 
I folded and cut pale blue hammered PMS card to 6x6 and layered the backing on.
I took the photographs in Sea World, Florida and Miami Seaquarium in 1989, before there were digital cameras so I had to scan them in. I opened them in Photoshop Elements 5 the create the frame and the title, then printed in Word on photo paper and about 3 years or so ago and never used it. I found several of my old photographs which I had printed and never used. It really does pay to have a shuftie through your old stash occasionally :o) The only new stuff used on this card is the starfish and anchor dies from Marianne. Methinks I may add a couple more starfish :o)

So pleased the physio session went well Jackie, I think it's very much down to luck if you get a good one and sounds like your is.

That big and juice is/was one of my favourites, the colours are lovely. Such a shame they stopped making them.

Wishing you a Happy Easter.

What an interesting project you have made.
I think you are right; a few more starfish would just do the trick.

Love how you've done the photograph Jackie... clever you with photoshop elements... I have still to come to terms with mine - I only do a few things with it, not anything like what it's capable of!

Glad the physio went well also.

Hugs

What a lovely tribute to your trip to Sea World in 1989. I love the idea of scanning since I too have pics before the digital camera. Your pics of the countryside and castles were awesome. The castles and landscapes were breath-taking!
