aw thanks ,

I think that looks great the colours are amazing !! Cant thank you enough it looks great ! ill see what else comes in though but will probably use that one-
i was hoping to send it back to my aunt in a frame for Xmans surprise !(my aunt is in her 80s her father is my man in the uniform) with some touch up and colour - i think i can get it printed off on a printer with photo paper (my anut doesnt know about the new techniqiues !and neither do i really ) i know that something like that cam be done as my son said that (i have lots of pics on my digital camera and there is no fillm inside so how do we do that !? and he said you have to take it to Asda or something)

Anyway im thinking of buying a scanner for my xmans from me to me
