July Contest_Cowboy Dreams

I am crazy about Angela Blanchard's Western Rodeo Collection and ScrapSimple Embellishment Templates: Photo Masks - Western Rodeo and have been looking for a way to use them. I worked and worked on this very grainy, dark cell phone picture my SIL took from across the room. It's a download of a download, but I love it. Graham has always slept with his arms above his head. In the end the best results for this particular photo were from Syndee's Photo Edges 6301_6.

Journaling: Graham's first night of freedom sleeping in a big boy bed. Sunday 6/26/11.


PS: I slightly bent Angela's wagon wheel...her original is nice and straight! It's great.

    It all looks awesome together! The coloring in/of the photo looks great with the rest of the layout. Love it!
    You worked wonders on really bringing out the colors in the photo! Love the soft glow and the "Cowboy Dreams"!
    This is stunning. I love everything about it. Wow, it just jumps right out at you. He is going to love his layout. This would look so nice against his wall.
    Fabulous, Dot - This really should be framed and hung on the wall, don't you think? It's a wonderful layout and right on par with your oh, so creative layouts always.
    Fantastic layout, Dot. Your layouts are always so great, but this one is really exceptional.
    Absolutely wonderful, Dot. The colors in your photo work so well with the papers and embellishments you chose. The title is perfect, and the frayed mats suggest dream fragments. Frameable indeed - it reminds me of a movie poster.
    LOve what you have done, and the little quilt covering the guy is sweet too!
    Oh, Dot! This is fantastic! I too love this kit. I have used it twice since I received the freebie! lol What a cute photo of your grandson! I love the way you highlighted the cowboy! I agree with Sara. You should frame this one!
    Dot this is Fabulous! I love everything about it! I especially like the soft glow of the silohuetted cowboy!
    LOVE love LOVE!!
