September DCWV Stack-a-holic challenge

I really loved the sketch they provided at DCWV this month! It took some thinking, but when I came up with my concept, I ran with it.
I used Nana's Kitchen stack. The letter stickers are also DCWV that were in my stash. The flower is handmade from a search-a-word I printed out several times. I then inked it with the orange/yellow color in the middle and blue on the edges. The green ribbon is also stash that I bought at Target in the 1$ bin LOL. The "my" metal eyelets are Making Memories and a gift from a dear friend. The "priceless" fabric sticker was stash, as were the silver alphabet brads and the green button.
This is the sketch provided by Susan at Sketch Savvy

TFL and have a great evening! Off to cook dinner :)

Helldorado Town - Tombstone, Arizona Territory

I have to put Arizona Territory, cuz it tickles me. The tour guide we had while we were there, and now friend of ours, called Arizona that. It just kind of stuck. This is a layout I just finished for this weeks sketch at Let's Scrap. I blurred the picture of Mike just because I thought it may be in bad taste for a public site. BUT this is my blog, and I think it is funny and all meant as harmless fun.

Anyhow, here is the Let's Scrap sketch for the week (hurry over, you have until Tuesday at Midnight if you want to play along)

and here is my take on it

We named the jailbird "Bob" just because it seemed to fit LOL The cowboys at Helldorado Town put on a good show. The cowboy in black with the black hat was actually an extra in the movies "Tombstone" and "Brokeback Mountain". As it says in the journaling, this is the first activity we did when we got to Tombstone. The cowboy with the light shirt on was standing out on the corner selling tickets for the show. He is a really nice guy and we chatted a bit, then his cell phone rang. He said it was his "cowboy communicator". LOL The mini cowboy hat and bandana are Jolee's and the cowboy boot is an old metal pin I found at a yard sale. The border above the pictures is an old leather shoelace.  
I have been super tired the last couple days, been trying to catch up on some sleep while the kids are visiting their grandparents. Have a great Labor day weekend everyone!
