POM with a FREE digi!

hi all!

we are heading out to tour Oatlands Plantation this morning.  i LOVE plantations and even worked as a tour guide at one in south louisiana called oak alley – yep full hoop skirts and all!  it was so much fun!  if you ever saw interview with a vampire then you have seen oak alley. i was working there during filming – pretty interesting.  i have toured many plantations in louisiana and mississippi and i am curious if they will be similar or different here in northern va.

today kicks off a new challenge in the Prisma and Other Mediums group on The Outlawz – we had to use fabric on our projects.

in addition i am submitting this to the following challenges:

Pile It On: down on the farm
SFYTT: sketch
Stamp Something: Digi Image
Make It Monday: Anything Goes

i added a fabric yoyo layered with felt as my embellishment – topped off with a glittered skittle.  yoyos are SUPER easy to make with the Clover Yoyo Makers – you can find them at joanns. you can get the BEST felt in the BIGGEST selection of colors on etsy from Felt On The Fly – love shopping there!

***speaking of Joanns – they have the BEST selection of halloween fabrics in right now***

isn’t this image just the best???  it was done by my DT sister over on the Outlawz POM team – anne fenton.  best of all – it is FREEEEEEEEEEEE.  that’s right – just click on her name and it will take you over to the Outlawz thread where you can see this image and all of her other amazing stuff.  i colored it with derwent coloursoft colored pencils.

and now a little kitten update – josephine, the momma cat, was adopted this past weekend – YAY!!!!  i am so happy for her.  she is such a sweet sweet baby.  as for our own newly adopted little guy he is just AWESOME.  of course i spoil him silly all day long so he can’t stand it if he is not in the same room as me.  he is so cute and so playful but not in a destructive way.  here he is in the top of one of the cat trees with Pezza:

now i better go get my day going!  i hope you all can join us at the Outlawz for fun challenges and fab prizes!!!!
