Cowboy in training ~ Practical Scrappers May Sketch by Pia

Hi everyone, today is the May Sketch reveal over at Practical Scrappers..  We had two great but very different sketches!  I chose the one by Pia and here it is...

The photos I chose for this layout are of my son back in 1987 when he was 8 years old.  At that time we were living in Alamogordo, New Mexico..  Every time we would go back to OK to see our family I would have pictures taken of both kids at Blunck's Studio.. I did this until they graduated from High School... 18 years worth!!!   I'm trying to scrap some of the ones that didn't make it into their album..  I don't know how I   ended up with almost all of the proofs, too.. :o)  Anyway.. I used the western stickers on this layout because, to me it looked like what you might see in the desert and we lived right by White Sands Desert...
here are a few close ups...
Here are the Jolee's 3-D Wild West Stickers

And here are the Creative Imaginations -Western Stickers.. You can also see the decorative corner cut with the Silhouette SD..

What a great use of the sketch, Fern! Same as you, I wanted to do both sketches but ran out of time. Started this one but didn't finish. Love the story behind your photos! Love Western look to the page and ADORE that title! We are going to Sante Fe in a few weeks and I can't wait! Have a great evening!
