A Great Day Fishing by Grandson Jaydn

by Elizabeth Dulemba
Coloured by our dear Grandson Jaydn aged 10. The image was printed onto neenah and Jaydn used my second best pencils to colour this wonderful fish.. I imported the coloured image into Craft Artist 2 where Jaydn chose which background/rocks/shells/weeds/sentiment and other embellishments he wanted around his picture.
This picture celebrates his very first proper fishing trip. We set up at Carleton Fen under some trees Jasmine had a little telescopic rod and caught a Roach and a Rudd within moments.   

The most amazingly beautiful dragonfly landed on Jaydn's leg.

Jasmine isn't asleep...just watching her float.
 A really beautiful day, a picnic, and then
 Jaydn caught a 6lb Common Carp and just needed Grandad's help landing it. I grabbed the landing net in one hand to help get the monster safely to the bank whilst holding the hand of one very excited little girl who was tripping and skipping over stuff in her excitement to get a good look. So, to show the size of the monster here are Jasmine's and Jaydn's hand for reference
After some very quick photos the beautiful fish was placed carefully back in the lake and we had two very chuffed kiddies bubbling over with joy. A very, very special, memorable day for us all.

And this appeared in this month's newsletter from Elizabeth Dulemba
