I made this sweet frame for my son Jake's bedroom. The picture is of him a few summers ago, picking out his 'rodeo stock' for the sheep riding event! lol! I used the new World Kid, Nathan from USA. The frame  is a cheapy from Michaels, and I simply adhered DP (October Afternoon's Sasparilla) to the whole frame, flipped it over and used my craft knife to cut out the centre portion, and inked the edges. I added a little border between the two DP's using the new Your Next Die Stars (I used the smallest of the stack), topped with jumbo silver brads, and attached with dimesional dots.

The lasso was made with some rope from my stash, and I cut the words using my Cricut and Old West cartridge. Nathan was coloured with copics, and glaze was added to his eyes, belt buckle, sherriff's star and horseshoe.
