Happy Anniversary to Us!!

Yay! Happy Anniversary to Me & Neil!!!! I've been waiting to use this digi of Big Guy Grilling from Mo's Digital Pencil for ages. Neil has wanted a "Grow'd Up" BBQ forever but it was the thought of the torpedo launching gas canister that has always put him off. For years he's been smoking out everyone in a 3 mile radius of our house with those cheapie coal & flame thrower-types whilst wearing an oxygen tank on his back. So a month ago he finally got one, had it delivered only to find it all buckled & broken. The replacements ignition switch then didn't work & when he did finally get it put together the weather changed & it has sat at the bottom of the garden, cover on, providing a perch for the birds to poop on ever since!! That was until last weekend when with rain clouds bubbling, a wind whipping up & temperatures close to Arctic conditions I saw the muppet...wearing his thickest winter jumper and shorts warming his hands over his beloved toy!! It was too much to bear...but too blimin' cold to join him..so I threw him a packet of sausages and left him posing "macholy". Heaven knows what the neighbours must have thought. Happiness reigns!!
Coloured with Promarkers, glazed highlights, cut out & mounted onto some old Papermania flowery paper that I found in my crafty stash. The message is a BBQ font. Entering it at -
