This is one of the layouts I did at the Swarm back in January. I forgot I hadn't posted a picture of it. I borrowed the Old West cartridge from my friend Linda, before she even had a chance to use it, so I could do the layout because I didn't have the cart yet *okie noticed Linda trying to hold on tight to the cart but okie had a good strong grip and gave a forceful tug to get it out of Linda's hands*. I do own Old West now and think it is a great cart! Maybe it is because I live in cowboy land! Click the pictures if you want to see up close detail
The paper is some I got at the LSS that closed down over a year ago. I saw the paper and knew I wanted to use it for something and then when my daughter went horseback riding at Thanksgiving I knew I could finally use the paper! The horse in the bottom of the right hand corner of the 2nd page is from the paper. I cut it out and then pop dotted it over the print of the same horse print on the paper, that is why the swirls match up. I went over some of the swirls with some Glossy Dimensions.
The title cut, beige horse, saddle and concho are all cuts from Old West. I used a lot of brads on the pictures but I thought they complimented the layout. I chose to use a silver gel pen for the faux stitching to match the brads. I used the Paisley Cuttlebug folder to emboss the title circle.
If you guys haven't checked out the Old West cartridge you should really give it a look if you have any western themed layouts or cards to do...IT IS FANTASTIC!
