Although it's highly unlikely that our adorable (just recently turned 3) little guy is going to grow up to be a cowboy, it is still fun to make a visit to the Wild West, using October Afternoon's Sasparilla collection. I really love the red's, yellow's, and blue's in this line and all of the fun western prints. OA has always been a favorite manufacturer of mine and it is just so hard to resist buying every collection they put out! :) I did this layout Friday night at the monthly crop I attend. Believe it or not, it was a challenge free layout...no challenges, no DT work for this one. I just loved this photo of our little guy from our recent visit to the Zoo and knew that I wanted to work with the Sasparilla line for this page.
I did also mix in a patterned paper from the new 9 to 5 line (the dark wood grain) and one of the new 9 to 5 Washi Tapes. That is another favorite thing of mine, about the OA lines...you can mix and match the different lines so easily. My friend asked me Friday night, if there was any patterned paper from the Sasparilla line, that I didn't use on this page!! :) I will admit that I am a patterned paper junkie and I just love filling my pages with all of the fun patterns and colors. I rarely use solids, but I can do that too, when I put my mind to it. I added some hand stitching and machine stitching to my page, to add some texture and just that little something extra!

And, in my excitement on Friday, when I announced that I would be joining the Get It Scrapped! Creative Team, I forgot to post the image introducing all of the other talented Ladies that I will be working with on the Team.
Several of the Ladies, I already "know" from serving on current Design Teams with them and others are Ladies I am looking forward to getting to know! If you haven't been over to Get It Scrapped!, I highly recommend checking things out! Debbie Hodge, has a wealth of information packed into all of her sites and there is so much to learn and be inspired by. I am already working on my first assignments for the coming month and I can't wait to share them with you!!
