Baa Baa

The layout which I lifted for this design is in Creative Keepsakes Volume 16  Issue 4 Page27
I loved the looks of the layout I lifted, but wanted something unique to set it off.  I used my celtic stamps and embossed with white powder.  Then to connect them, I stitched with yellow and white baker's twine.  It kept me from having to decide between white and yellow.  I used Wild Honey distress ink on the yellow circles, and then on the white scalloped circles I used the Crushed Olive Distress Ink marker to doodle lines on it.

It didn’t take very long to see our first sheep. But most of the time they were fenced in fields. It wasn’t until we reached Skye that we saw some sheep roaming freely. I told Sharon That I wanted to experience a flock of sheep surrounding and blocking the car. She didn’t! The closest I got was 3-4 sheep crossing the road. We didn’t see many black sheep. But we were there in the spring, so we got to see several baby lambs. We weren’t the only ones enchanted by the sheep. There was a tourist on Skye that got out of the tourist bus and went through a gate and chased a sheep with a camera. Her tour guide Got out of the van and insisted she return!
