To enter your image, revisit this blog on either April 14th or 15th. When you submit, I will have Mr. Linky set up. You'll type in your name and the url that has your image (such as the specific page on your blog). It's super easy.

Grading Criteria:

  1. Mastery of image manipulation is not required.
  2. If you don't know how to use Photoshop, you can photograph the quadruped in a new setting.
  3. I'm looking for the most creative, quirky... Something that makes me laugh. It needs to look thoughtful and not slap dash.
  4. You are welcome to change the color of the sheep, alter...
  5. Offensive, sexual or violent images are not accepted.
  6. You may include more than one sheep in your compilation, but it more won't win you extra points.
  7. Bonus points for looking at others submissions and leaving positive, constructive feedback or encouragement. Butt kissers need not try.
  8. Please include a few sentences describing why you chose the location that you did.

  1. My mind is going crazy with ideas, now to find the right picture for a background...

  2. I did it, but it is on my blog & not yours. Was I suppose to put it on yours? If so I didn't know how. Mine not as good as the other one, but it was fun learning how to do it.

  3. hope the deadline was midnight pacific, other wise I do not think mine counts... but it was fun.

    I would say that both the other sheep were a little more creative then mine. A stop motion film of the adventures of tack sheep could be a very awesome thing!!
