A couple weeks ago, my Miss V went to VBS (Vacation Bible School). The theme this year was Saddle Ridge Ranch...Ultimately Western. I took several pictures of her throughout the week of their activities, interactions with friends and teachers. I just finished these pages over the weekend and was planning to put them in her album today when ... I found a challenge for Western... I have blurred the faces of Miss V and the others in the layout to protect their privacy. Much as I would love to share photos of my Miss V....it just "ain't safe no more"! I probably am being way to anal about it but.... LOL
Anyway the layouts are totally mine. I have no idea the names of the designer papers that I have used... However.. I did draw the horseshoes and inked them up to make them look somewhat rusty... I did a small layer over top of the large horse shoe and punched diamond shaped holes in them (don't ask why diamond shap..I just liked how it looked). I then adhered the extra little strips to the big horseshoe and colored in the holes with a black copic markers. I made the shoes out of silver mirri paper. Found these fabulous alpha stickers that I had in my stash so long, I have no idea where they came from or why I bought them.. They are wood tone.. Perfect for my page. In the next one.. I actually made the covered wagon, all except the wheels and those I used from clip art. For some reason my wheels just didn't look right no matter what I did to them.. I have to say in that layout... I did use the covered wagon that someone had built a full scale model out of wood at the church as my model. All in all I was pretty pleased with the outcome.
This fits the challenge for :
