Hi guys, Ilene here today to share a layout using some incredible CE goodies. This is my son last month getting a pony ride… and what could be more perfect than these collections from October Afternoon? I mixed a couple different lines to create this. The paper with the horse image made me name this layout “Friendly Horse”. I used several CE embellishments – the carousel horse, the wooden stars, and the “marvelous” word. For the first time, I left them all completely bare and took advantage of the kraft coloring, which went perfectly with the outdoorsy, cowboy feel of the layout, and the background kraft paper itself.

Also, I just have to point out – just look at the amazing detail the carousel horse comes with, without you having to even do anything. Even if I did color it, I would want to be sure not to cover that up!
