Altered Dictionary - Y

Hee Hee!  I expect those who have been following my Fruit Dictionary have been waiting to see what I came up with for 'Y' :D  I actually had a choice...

Yali pears, Yellow plum, Yangmei, Yumberry, Yamamomo , Youngberry!!!  I dare you to Google them hahaha!!!!  The problem I had was that most of them weren't in my dictionary!!!!!  I have a few old dictionaries and found Youngberry in the end.  Of course Google is a great resource too!  I had never heard of a Youngberry...its a cross between and blackberry and a dewberry, named after Mr Young who developed the hybrid way back in 1900!  I expect those across the pond have heard of it as its an American fruit.
Please note that there is a spin on this fortnights challenge must use yellow in your background!!!  I didn't mind too much as I like bright colours :D  I painted the background yellow like a good girl then used one of Andy Skinners new masks fromTando and some Fresco paint in Cheesecake to dumb it down a bit.  The stamp along the top & bottom is by PaperArtsy.  Can you see a teensy bit of Washi Tape????  I think I may be coming round to that stuff hahaha!!!

Thank you for popping by, take care xxxxxx

All Gold Youngberry Jam? Well it does sound yummy doesn't it!!! Is there a new dictionary page up? Am I behind before I get started?? Your background is perfect or the can of fruit and then the Youngberries growing on the vine - looks like a blackberry.
