i condisder myself a shoe girl. that is, i love to get new shoes. i had a time in my life where i had probably 20 different colors of low top chuck taylors. the yellow ones were my favorite. but now, it's all about flips. i love them. i don't go overboard, like i used to. now i have only a few pair. but the ones i have, i love. so when i got the latest circle journal in the "my theme" cj swap, i was all set on what i wanted to do. and i had this great new flip flop punch! then i did my 2 pages and hated it. so i had to redo it. this is the result. i'm still not liking it much, but i had to send it on it's way.

got flips
stamps: purple onion designs, stampin up, imaginisce
cardstock: morning marigold, buckaroo blue, rose red, purely pomegranate, soft sky
ink: onyx black versafine
