Buckaroo Birthday -- Paper Doll Dress Up, Old West

Yee-Haw!!  Time to saddle up them horsies and lasso in some cows, pardner!!  :)  It's also time to send a Cowgirl SHOUT-OUT to a very special person out there...  Please take a moment to visit Amanda of AT Home Ink...  I was the very lucky WINNER of a $20 Peachy Keen Stamps Gift Certificate from Amanda, and I would NOT have had as much fun adding faces to my Cowgirl and Cowboy (I was gonna call them 'Cowpeople'....  But that sounded like someone you'd meet in an advertisement for Chick-Fil-A...  yum.)...  Anyway, I had such a decision to make when I carefully selected my very first Peachy Keen Stamps...  Every time I use them, I will very fondly think of Amanda...  Thanks again, Amanda!!  :)
Well, I reckon I had a fantastic time workin' on this here two-page 12x12 layout...  The challenge over at Paper Cutz Challenge this week is to create a card, LO or craft project for a child's birthday, with a country or western theme, using any colors you’d like...  And I decided to Cowgirl Up and enter the challenge with this fun layout!!
My cowgirl, cowboy, cow, and horse were all cut at 4" (no gypsy today, pardner!)...  All the clothing and accessories for their darling outfits were also cut at 4"...  The mountains in the background were cut at 4.25" (love my 'Fit To Length' key!!) and the fences (three in all) were cut at 2.25"...  My white Signo pen got a workout on those outfits...  I used pink, chocolate, and black inks to distress edges and add color to my cow (who has some hand cut spots, by the way!)...
The 'Buckaroo Birthday' title is from the Old West Cricut Cartridge (I love all the fonts on this cart!!)... 
While I was creating this, I thought maybe some photos of The-Nephew could fill those photo boxes for his next birthday...  But then I found out that he got a new haircut and thinks he looks like Justin Bieber!!  He doesn't wanna be a Cowboy...  he wants to be a Heartthrob!!  {sigh}
Thanks so much for giddy-up-ing on over to see my Western-themed Birthday Layout...  I'd be mighty appreciative if ya left me some lines in the comment section below...  Remember to check back on FRIDAY to read about my Big Ole Awesome Giveaway for followers (ya wouldn't be so yella as to visit me and not follow, would ya???)...

Love the LO. It turned out really cute. You're gonna love the PK stamps, but be warned they are very addictive.

What cartridge did the cow come from? Or was it a stamp?

Amy said...

@ScrappyKsue...
The cow is on the Paper Doll Dress Up cartridge... Everything on the layout is cut with the Paper Doll Dress Up cartridge EXCEPT the 'Buckaroo Birthday' (which came from Old West)...

If you have more questions about the layout, please let me know!!
