My Grandfather

The new Male Room Challenge is : at my gransfather's house.
One set of my grandparents live in Germany and one in The Netherlands, then when we moved to Italy it was hard to get round to them.

We left when I was 7 or 8 and my Dutch Grandpa died before that, I don't remember much, except I think he was a fisherman as my grandma was always peeling shrimps. I also remember trying to get a fish off the hook and being put off fishing for life! My granddad had lots of fishing things in the shed, so I went down that route. 

I printed this cute digi from Lili of the Valley ( now 50% off)  with my laser printer so I could use Ecoline watercolors.

I added the sentiment  in Photoshop when I was resizing and arranging the digi.

I've put some Nuvo Shimmer pen on the water and I thought the yellow wader things is what fisherman wear, oil coats...
 In any case it's still manly ;-)
