'All about Me'

It's time for a new challenge over at The Outlawz Twisted Thursday and the optional twist is:  "It's All About YOU!"  Well, this is definitely all about me with the horse and all the western/nature images in the background.  

It's also about me, because this background is designed by ME in Cricut Design Space!  Yes, it's true!  I chose the images and played with them in CDS and used Print then Cut!  Check it out in the video below!
