First and foremost today, I would like to say I have such a great life. :) I'm so thankful for all I have been given and for time every day to do what I enjoy so much! I am truly blessed and try not to take that for granted. And thank God for our country and our service men and women who give us the freedom to be able to do what we enjoy on free soil. If you haven't yet done so, please fly your flag proudly today on Flag Day, 2010!!
Here are some of the things I did this weekend while puttering around in my scraproom with all the fun toys and goodies I am so lucky to have! This firs page is Miss Grace in her pink cowgirl boots and matching hat at the fall festival at her school last October. She takes her role very seriously as you can see. I'm surprised she didn't want to have a horse with her in the gymnasium. LOL!!! Isn't she cute though. These papers are by My Mind's Eye from the Quite Contrary collection. Shading is all done with ink.
I used the QK banner border die for the title background, English Rose alphabet (capitals) popped with foam tape, and Blossom mini alpha, cowboy hat and boot, and rhinestones and stickles for extra pizzaz, as no self respecting rodeo queen would skimp on rhinestones and sparkle, after all!
Subtitle is done in QK Chandelier alphabet, and the date box is the 4x4 pumpkin popped with foam tape for even more dimension. To mimic her chaps, I snipped the edge of a strip of white eyelet paper and added brads to each side of the strip.
I love this picture of Sally and Emmy at a family gathering last summer. And these papers are to die for aren't they!? October Afternoon, my new crush!, Cherry Hill collection. So cute!!! Months border, scalloped edge and title letters, Cotton Candy, by Quickutz. Eyelet scallop border by Cottage Cutz and Ribbons by American Crafts.
Super cute stickers and cherries die cuts from the Cherry Hill collection.
Cut another portion the border with the month I wanted to highlight in the next darker shade and added it in layers with foam tape. I love this look.
