“We had to make a picture describing ourselves with dots for International Dot Day http://www.facebook.com/pages/International-Dot-Day/141533819216932?v=info#info_edit_sections

“So, tell me about your dot picture” I said.
“Well, I asked Imaginational Dabrowski to help me think of all the things I do which are dot shaped. So I put in the Shape Collages of pictures of me and pictures of my holiday.

“That is the kangaroo from the Australian children’s book Dot and the Kangaroo. She came looking for Dot”
