out in the yard

another atc for a swap over at the shack. this one is a barnyard animal theme. i choose sheep (then realized that they weren't really part of a barnyard but don't tell anyone that!). i love these little sheep stamps. and i used fun flock to make the sheep fuzzy!!

my secret obsession...

here is another entry in the latest circle journal swap i'm in. this is roxie's cj. the theme is 'my secret obsession'. i didn't know how to stamp and create a page revolving around my true secret obsession, which is the real world on mtv (i'm a junkie!), so i went with my crafting secret obsession.
