AJ wk39- Someone Special & TMTA Pirates

First up is the AJ WK 39. Someone special. Well Im in danger of offending someone here. But I can't get them all on. I've done my Grandma last week & a full book of my BIL yesterday. Today is the turn of my friends. However, one of my friends, Joy, hasn't got back to me regarding the photo she wouldn't mind the world seeing. So this is Colette. Can you believe she is 70 in this picture!! She is a Seychellois & has lived here in UK 20 years. She has been there for me during dark times of depression, times when my own family weren't. When I went hungry, she fed me, when I was cold she took me in to warm me until bedtime. She is my very best friend & like a mother to me.
I stamped the photo with tropical blooms as these grow wild in The Seychelles. Then I coloured them in with permanent whisper markers.
This is the latest TMTA challenge, Pirates. I found this one a tough subject & only hope Ive done it a bit of justice. The pirate is a picture from the net. The background paper is from my DCWV mat stack Once Upon a Time.
I stamped the ship & treasure chest.

Wow. Colette sounds like a really wonderful person. It's so nice to hear that real angels like that exist in the world to help us when we're down on our luck. What a fab tribute ATC.

Hey, girl, miss yah. Hope you're doing well. I know what you mean of being tired all the time. It's been raining like crazy here and all I want to do is sleep.

Love the pirate ATC too. Love teh ship stamp and the pirate saying "shh", as if there's trouble afoot and we're off to hide the treasure. =)
