Carolyn ,thank you for the inspiration.
This started out for the challenge to use a mask, a button, stitching and text but I did not get it done in time. But I think it fits here OK as well.
Journaling: These are my friends from class. They were competing at the Little Rock Dog Club agility trials in Nov 2012. Right now, I am in their shadow. But come this fall, I'll be ready. Carl Spring 2013
