COWBOY day...

Friday, November 9, 2012

One of my daughter's most memorable days from Kindergarten was 
"Cowboy, or Cowgirl" Dress Up day...Mostly because I 
gave her freckles with my eyeliner and she thought it was the coolest thing!
I have so many freckles and I hate them, it makes for very uneven skin tone,
especially after I was told recently by someone in the business of dermatology...
Thanks for that one!  

Anyway, didn't give Sam freckles but he wore a little pleather vest circa 1978,
that was part of an old Halloween costume of Shawn's, so cute, and the red
bandanna that my Dad always wore cutting the grass...but old and silly
but very meaningful, at least to us...Oh, and the crappy Styrofoam hat I bought from 
the Dollar Tree! :)  An eclectic, not as so much Urban Cowboy!

This was a layout inspired by the current ScrapFit Workout #79 which 
is to use washi tape in new and creative ways...I do love Challenges,
but some really do make me do things I wouldn't have thought about before, 
or would have thought about, just never done!  And I am pleased with the turnout 
and think it is a great technique to use again!  I would say that makes 
for a good workout!  Here is the link to their blog:

I laid out several different tapes on a diagonal on some plain cardstock
and then punched squares out of it...There are so many possibilities for this, 
making gift tags, photo mats.  It is like my own personally designed 
pattered paper, but better because it is so versatile, it can be removed if 
crooked and there is so much on a roll, I don't feel that hoarding sensation!

Speaking of hoarding, I had been saving this alpha sticker sheet from Crate Paper 
from the Farmhouse collection and I could NOT find a good place for that
font of alphas, not the big one anyway, so it finally found a home on Cowboy Day!
