Super Star Shirley - MFTWSC121

My Auntie Shirley did her first parachute jump at age 79!!  She's always telling her grandchildren, "You're never too old to do silly things" and she wanted to do something "exciting" before she turned 80.  Along with the excitement of the jump she raised £2,553.38 (and that's pounds, not dollars!) for a charity that gives residential holidays to disadvantaged children in England.  I used this week's MFTWSC121 but flipped it upside down.

The PI Plane Amazing image was perfect as that's exactly what my Auntie Shirley looked like! She wore a blue/yellow jumpsuit and goggles but I gave her the wings for being so brave!  I also added a generous layer of crystal effects to her goggles.

I wish I could have been there in person to cheer her on but these photos made me smile and my cousins kept me up to date with a play by play :)

And here she is with her jumping partner having just landed! 

I'm SO proud of my Super Star Auntie!!

Cheerio.....Leslie
