MB Challenge December 2012 'Old Age'

What better way to celebrate old age than with two spry 80+ year olds who still have the energy to join a Charles Reid Workshop in Prague and Salzberg? Mary from Canada, and Delys from Australia put me to shame with their 'game on' attitude. I swear, Mary could out 'go' me easily! Those are hiking shoes, folks...and I think they were used often :)

I fell in love with the red umbrella, even though you can see from its reflection on Mary's paper why a colored rain catcher is not such a good idea! Look how the sun rakes across her body! Super!

Diana, our fearless leader, came through with flying colors as usual.

Mark Adams is going to take a sabbatical for a few months, but his December submission is awesome...

Suzanne was swamped with end of year commissions, so if she gets something to me, I'll post it later :)
