Gramps

As the birthdays pile up, and NO, I am NOT going to admit I am anything but young, I do  find myself being drawn more and more to gentlemen who have developed a slight pudge, a few gray hairs, or no hair! So when I saw Fawn Palmer's handsome Gramps from Squigglefly, I fell in love! Granted, he may not look like George or Harrison but . . . he could be a keeper!

  3. Oh Tammy we need to have some years on us to fully realise that the qualities that make a people special to us have nothing to do with Movie Star ideals.
    I love how you coloured him to appear to blend with the background but then when you look the lovely smile and twinkling eyes stand out.
    I wouldn't swap my Super Star for all the Brad Pitts in the world!
