Ride 'Em Cowboy

I love how certain companies repeat the same colors over and over in their various collections. It makes it so easy to combine papers on a layout...like the one below. That green on the border page is identical to the green in the Sasparilla collection and both are from October Afternoon. This was particularly fortuitous since I was getting low on my Sasparilla papers and with my patterned paper obsession, couldn't imagine using regular (gasp!) cardstock to border my page. It's a little busy, but I like it like that!

 

Several stickers and the brown leather patterned paper are courtesy of my stash, holdouts from an old Flair collection. Love how they combine as well!


Hopefully the page is so fun and colorful you don't notice that the horse's head is missing! I was in the backyard with the rest of the kids, probably taking pictures of something else, and missed Kevin's pony ride. I didn't get pictures of him on the horse, and was thankful that someone else had taken a few photos for me. Unfortunately none of them had much of the horse in them!Tee-hee.

Great layout with really great layering!!! To funny about the horse, but I probably wouldn't have thought about it :)

I love OA, too for that reason. When I start my Project Life album, I am thinking of doing it all in OA. I have so much of it! And in so many different lines/themes. I think I could probably do it :)

I love that companies do that as well. It makes mixing lines easier. Echo Park is another one. Love the layout and that you scrapped a non-perfect layout!
