cowboys, a winner, and poor little Billy . . .

The next round of challenges has begun over at
Gingersnap Creations, and the new theme is
Wild West--the current challenge, cowboys and
cowgirls. You'd think, being a midwest girl
my whole life, I'd jump up and shout "yee-haw"
for this one, but let me tell you, at first I
just kinda thought, "Uh, what?"

Then (I am NOT going to say "moseyed on over,"
no, no NO!) I perused the selection of Old West
themed Altered Pages images, and that was enough
inspiration to get me started on another mini book--
here's the first layout:

Plus, and this is a BIG PLUS, Technique Junkies

graciously agreed to host this round of challenges,
and allowed us a peek at some of their amazing
tutorials. The faux denim and faux barn wood
techniques--perfect. Both are so easy, and have
such a great effect. Thank you, Technique Junkies!

Hey, congratulations to Cathy, you are the
random getter of the Asian goodies-- Cathy happens
to be one of my Altered Pages DT sisters! Hiya, honey!

So c'mon, you know you wanna play along-- don't end up like
poor little Billy:
