Howdy, pardner! Who has the Old West cartridge? Have you used it yet? It's so goat-ropin' cute! This is a layout that was a team effort between myself and Nana Susan. I worked on the background and some of the photo mats, and then Nana Susan worked on the Cricut stuff, added all the cute details and completed the layout. The pictures were from my Emily's 4th birthday party. Ahhh, being an only child has its advantages.

Don't forget to leave a comment to be entered for this week's blog candy - your choice of the "In Bloom" or "Spring into Action" kit.

Also, I just noticed that we're at 1950 followers. Wow!!! So just an FYI, I'm going to do another "Week of Giveaways" when we hit 2000 - just like I did when it hit 1000, and I'll give away something different each day for a week. Should be fun!

I love this cartridge and love that it's great for girls or boys. This layout is sooo cute! I think my favorite detail is the rope around the saddle horn----and Emily's big smile.

What a great LO! Memories of my teen years riding... I had two horses, Graple was the first one and then Starr and then I moved to the city... I always say that if I had land, I would get another horse and ride again, yipee cayay!!
