Howdy Partner layout with Julie Nutting dolls

This is something I have wanted to do for awhile and it was so fun.  I love playing with Julie Nutting paper doll stamps.  This was the perfect picture to create a layout using my new bitty doll stamps.  
I have created little girls to match my granddaughters dresses but until recently there weren't any boys so this is the first time I was able to do a boy too.  
This is my grandson Micah 2 and my granddaughter Kenzie 4 
dressed up for Western day at preschool.  
I hunted through my stash to find papers that matched their clothes as much as possible.  
I am entering this in two challenges:  
                  Handmade flowers and recycled materials!
                                       Frosted Designs
The flowers are hand cut circles of paper and sewing patterns.  
For the  recycled part of the challenge I used the sewing patterns, 
veggie bag net, and grocery bag torn and rolled for frame.  

Die Cut challenge: Clothing

Stuck on U Sketches
The little girl stamp had fancy shoes 
so I cut boots out to match my granddaughters.  
The clothesline is a Silhouette die cut I cut three times.  
The title Howdy Pardner is also a Silhouette cut and I used a Martha Stewart punch for the fan.  I sprayed with Glimmer Mist, used denim ribbon from Michaels, tiny clothes pins, and cork embellishments.  
Thanks for looking at my project.  I would love to hear your comments.  
Happy craftin!

  6. This really turned out darling!
    Sorry it took me a bit to get my booty over there though...
    And gosh...BOY layouts! Woohoo!
    Just saying, if ever, I have a "all about boys" label on my blog.
    Having a couple young ones myself. I have always found finding
    good boy page inspiration, sometimes nonexistent.
    Can't wait to see what you do in the future...

    Warmly, Leah
