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.

 

TFL!

 

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

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.

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.

Nice layout! It looks very dreamlike with the bright cowboy image popping out of the dark background.

I don't know how I missed your stunning LO when you posted it! I noticed it on the homepage of all things. :) The colors are amazingly rich, love the glow, the title within the frame of Graham's picture, but most of all I love the concept. You are so talented and creative. Blessings, Gina
