I Wanna Be a Cowgirl

Yes...this is my Mimi in her "cowgirl" getup when she was 3 1/2 years old :) Those are her Daddy's size 14 boots! Hard to believe she is almost 13 and ready to get her braces off soon. She was in love with this cowboy hat for a while, consequently there are several pics of her in various activities wearing it.

This is my interpretation of this weeks sketch from Sketchy Thursdays.

 Here is the sketch:

and my  layout:

I'm on a Bo Bunny kick this week :) These papers from the "Sophie" line seemed to have a western feel. The dimensional stickers are Jolee's Boutique and were perfect for this layout.

A few extra jewels and a little inking with a marker made them even cuter(if that is possible)!

The patterned paper medallions are cut and slipped onto the larger circles, all cut with the Coluzzle.

Had a wonderful day today with my sweet friend Missy! She took me out to lunch at Moo's Place (my fave Chinese Restaurant), to the Chocolate Garden for some truffles...Ooh La La, my taste buds were singing for joy! That place so deserved to be on Oprah. Check them out on the net, you won't be sorry! Finally a stroll around the local antique mall where I found another lidded jar for my collection. Perfection. Thanks Missy for the great day and Starbucks card, you made working on my birthday not such a big deal :}
