It's time for a new challenge over at The Outlawz Twisted Thursday and the optional twist is: Western Days/Ranch/Farm/Rodeo. Our sponsor, QKR Stampede, has such a HUGE variety of digis for that theme! I chose to create a Christmas tag with Cowboy Digital Stamp.

Our new challenge over at Cut It Up is Women's History! Now this is an interesting topic that could go in so many directions! I decided to go with the early cowgirls and their influence on our history!
If we go back before the photos I chose for my project, we find women riding side saddle in long skirts! Wow, not sure I could make that happen! There are days I have enough trouble riding with one leg on each side of the horse!
These were tough women riding and working horses when it truly was a 'man's job'! One of my favorite stories I read with my son is about a woman named Charlotte/Charley who lived as a man in order to ride/train/drive horses! The book is Riding Freedom; great read!
Anyway, I decided to go with a miniature cowgirl journal to celebrate this theme! So grab a mug of sarsaparilla, or coffee/tea/cocoa if you prefer, and join me inthe video below!
Our sponsor, Casual Fridays Stamps, has so many great dies and stamps for any project! I had the opportunity to use several in this miniature journal!

We continue to Celebrate with Something Special About Your Childhood! I chose to go with a collage on a journal page! I loved pictures, going to movies, art, listening to records/singing, playing jacks, my sister, writing stories, my cat, Peanuts, puzzles, playing cards/games, and dressing in ways my mom didn't like! hahaha That's what the red, white and blue shirt is all about!
I chose to do this in a collage style because I loved that as a child! Whenever we were given a choice to make a collage or write a report or build something in a class, I would almost always choose the collage!
The background was done with Faber Castel Gelatos, inks, stencils (of balls, stars and puzzle pieces), and stamps. Once that was dry, I put a cut and heat embossed "game board" piece on to represent my love of board games.
Next came the fun part of choosing different images and pieces. They are listed below. I found this quote on the internet and it was credited to Hary Jo Putney.
