Sunshine, Water, and Outdoors!

When you're almost 6, it's great fun to bathe your horse and it's such a mystery how blue shampoo turns your horse white!  Wow, that is soooo cool!  ; )                                                                         Bathing is a prerequisite to showing in halter and showmanship classes.  Of course, we would have to show a Palomino/Pinto!  Yee gads, keeping this guy clean is a nightmare.  Anyway, Lu has had a fun show season with our miniature horse Charlie.  She went in independently at the August show-- a layout of that will be coming very soon!  

This layout was done with all CTMH papers, stamps, and embellishments except the little blue sparkles splashing out of the bucket.  They were left over from Katie's wedding.  I'm going to be using those for a long time!  I'll list the stamp sets and embellishments below.

Clouds and Comb, Alcohol inks and Artistic license ;),
Metal on zipper and Mist of water from hose, Paper

This is going to the following challenges:

Paper Secrets:  Sketch and use products or techniques from the letters CAMP
Lasting Memories:  Water Fun
Fantabulous Cricut Challenge:  Camp Out ~ Inspired by Outdoors.  Cricut cuts from Sugar and Spice, Old West, Pack Your Bags, Garden Soup, and When I was a Kid.
