Cowboy Baby Shower Decorations

Hello again and welcome to another challenge at My Sheri Crafts!  Today our challenge is titled "Oh I Love America!"  It's time to celebrate our freedom so let's see your Patriotic cards or other projects, or use Red, White & Blue. 

I titled the challenge from a song I heard at my granddaughter's Veteran's Day program a couple of years ago.  I was going to do a layout with pictures from the program for this challenge, but life kind of got in the way these past couple of weeks and scrapbooking just didn't happen!  My sweet father just had his 90th Birthday on the 18th so we had a BIG party on Father's Day.  He's having a really rough time health wise, but that day was a very good day.  Thank you Lord for that one really good day!  Since then he has started dialysis and had two ER visits, is currently fighting a bad infection and just really struggling.  My heart hurts for him and I would appreciate any and all prayers for him.

So anyway, I had an order for baby shower decorations with a cowboy theme.  When I finished it, I realized I had primarily used Red, White and Blue and what's more American than the Great American Cowboy?  So it qualifies for this challenge!

First we have the diaper cake:

The topper is cut from A Child's Year and mounted with pop dots onto Martha Stewart paper.  The paper is 8x8 bandanna print and I trimmed out the center of the print.
 Each layer is banded with wood print paper from The Paper Studio.  The bands are decorated with cuts from A Child's Year and Old West, mounted on punched squares of the Martha Stewart bandanna print papers.

Next we have the banner!

 The onesies are from the New Arrival cartridge and the bandannas, hats and letters are all from the Old West cartridge.  I used the Gyspsy to get the bandannas sized to fit the onesies.
The "It's a Boy" ribbon is from Wal-Mart.  I threaded it through the detail slits cut in the sleeves of the onesies.
So that wasn't too much of a stretch to say it qualifies for this challenge, right?  :)
I hope you like the decorations.  They were so fun to work on!   Now it's your turn to join the fun and head over to My Sheri Crafts!
