Frontier City

Hello all, I'm back with another layout for sweetsassydiva design team. This week is all about travel and vacation. Well as some of you know if you follow my blog my summer has consisted of chemo treatments for my hubby and no vacation so I went a few years back, ok I went several years back and scrapped some pics of a trip to Frontier City. It's a small amusement park but it was perfect for our little ones at the time.
 I've got lots of pics to show you all the details and cuts. Wow; did I do a lot of cuts for these two layouts!
 I used some twine from my stash to make a lasso to hang from a dew drop. I love the way it turned out.
 I used a wanted sign to do my journalling block and then used brads to mimic the nails you would see in one.
 Again I couldn't resist adding some rope for her lasso. It added some great dimension and detail to the layout.

And now for all the details for the carts, cuts, and supplies I used.

Old West:
Frontier City - font  1 1/2"
General Store - p. 41  Fit to page
Wanted poster - p.44  4"

Just wondering if you have any of the Airmail divine twine left? I've been looking for just a small sampling to try (mainly for some OWH cards I want to do) and not having much luck.
Your LO's are fantastic.
