Great Impressions-Ride 'Em Cowboy!




 I made this mini album while taking a  Silhouette online class by Kerri Bradford . I am still working my way through the classes and boy have I learned alot. As I was working away on this mini, I realized it would be perfect to add in some great pics of Grandpa Karl's 85th birthday party that I attended last month. Most all of the elements and design are from Kerri Bradford, although I changed up the photo's and added a western touch to the album. At the party, the area was designed in a western theme-down to a very cool "wood pieced" cowboy boot on the wall. You know how we crafters do 'paper piecing'?  Well, they 'wood pieced' a big ole boot into the wall-and it must have been 5 or 6 feet tall! Very cool!!!! They even built a bed made of logs...oh the talent they have!

I  added in some barbed wire pieces cut with my Silhouette and this perfect Bucking Bronco Cowboy to give this book a bit of a western feel!  I will be adding a wee bit of journaling and then this is off in the mail to the birthday boy!




 








Just a  few notes on the lastest happenings over on our Great Impressions blog.
