I Wanna Be a Cowboy


Anyone remember that song? As I was typing the title that ran through my head and I am sure I will be hearing that in my head all day long now! Unfortunately "I wanna be a cowboy" are the only lyrics that I can remember from that song. It reminds me of one place I worked and the friends I worked with because it came on the radio all the time. So Summer Fun is the theme for the Riley and Company challenge this week. I made this for the daughter of a friend as a card but it will also fit in a slide in photo album as the title page. Every summer they spend a couple of weeks at a ranch. I have scrapbooked with her before and she told me she would like a scrapbook using her ranch photos. I think this will be perfect for that. I used Cowboy Riley and colored him with Copics. A few weeks ago I was in Hobby Lobby looking for some beads to make some jewelry for my mom and came across those little star charms. As soon as I saw them I knew I wanted to do a western themed card with them so I went looking for that bandana ribbon and found it at HL too. All the papers are from The Paper Studio.

I hope you had a great weekend. Ours was pretty good, very busy though. Friday night we went and saw Fright Night (Kip's turn to pick out the movie) and Saturday I spent the day with Jenna and let her shop her little twelve year old heart out for her birthday and then Kip and went and saw a play, The Signal Season of Dummy Hoy on Saturday night. Yesterday I took a class at my LSS and had a bunch of fun there. I will post my projects soon.

Have a great day!
