Yippee - i - o

Or should that be yippeeeee --- I owe ? That would be timely......

Anyway -- I had a terrible time with Penny's theme (horses) and colour (brown). I am terrified of horses (only to be surpassed by my fear of skiing and of public bathrooms). And although my name is Brown, and I wear brown, I'm not too fond of working in it. I just told myself that "brown is dark white" and then I went ahead...... here's what I came up withI learned a lot about horses while doing this. Well, my guilt of ripping up books usually means that I have to read the books before I cut them up. I skip this with foreign languages. That's why I use German and Polish text so often..... it saves me a lot of time.....
Penny's pages were all tip-ins. I'm not sure if I like tip-ins or not....
(that's when you make your own page and add it to the book -- usually using the side tabs which the book owner provides)

These are beautiful! Looks like you have conquered your fear of brown! It is actually my comfort color! When the muse naps-I go brown!

You did very well with a theme that intimidated you and a color you're not crazy about. Very nice pages.

I love your horse pages Martha...how talented you are!!! (coming from an equestrian family I would have to.)

Love how you thought of brown as a dark white and away you went.
