Happy Birthday Western Style.

Good afternoon everyone!!  Let's see... I went back to bed at about 7:30 am and I slept until a little after 11 am. I NEVER do that! LOL But! We are going to try to stay up and watch Bathurst, which starts about 8:30 pm and will go until after midnight. We will see how it goes! Kevin went and took a nap too. He will be able to stay up... he handles it much better than I do! So, I'm hoping to keep busy coloring and crafting! We will see how it goes! That is it for today... Bailey is going to have a friend spend the night I believe.

Here is my creation that I worked on today:









For this one I have used Mae Western from KennyK! I've colored her on kraft with my Prismacolor Pencils. I did a small amount of layering. I cut the WANTED out using the Silhouette Cameo. I used ChalkOla Chalk Markers around the edge and colored in the stars with the brown as well. I have inked and distressed most of the edges. Around the image was cut with a My Favorite Thing die. One strip was embossed with a Sizzix Embossing Folder. I added ink to the folder as well to give it that bit more. I have added some stitching, gems on the WANTED cut, twine and a charm, a few buttons and a few pearls which were colored brown using my Copic Markers. I created the sentiment and printed it on kraft. On the inside I used the same papers.. these are all scraps! I'm so excited to use all of the kraft and brown scraps! I still have a bunch more to go! I also inked and distressed the papers on the inside, added a bit of stitching and used the embossing folder on a strip as well!
