A post for Rosemary "Where five valley's meet"
Since dear Rosemary from "Where five valley's meet" showed her first collage and how to do it some time ago. I was very impressed and liked the look of it. Since that post a few of her followers have used this fantastic Pic monkey Dear Olympia "Old things" and Gina from Ginaceramics. All great collages.
... I initially had some difficulties understanding it all. I read and read again. Then Rosemary told me to try and try until i have got it. you remember last week I was without my computer as it was updated. I needed access to some sites that I couldn't get before. Now I can play around more.
I am truly proud of myself! ): big smile). I have followed Rosemary's advice on how to set it all up.
I went to my e mail earlier and dear Rosemary has kindly put together some of the photos from my last post.
Isn't this just great. How kind of her to do this for me, she is a whizz at it. She has even written my name.
Rosemary's collage to me.

My very first collage..
Filipe my youngest son with his daughter - my 4th grandaughter who is 9. With her big smile showing off her new braces Uncle Miguel put on this week for her.
I have had a wonderful day today. A special time spent with Filipe and Maria , we had lunch out in the village.
A splendid summer's day to remember.
I am thrilled that I have learnt something new. Sheer determination.
