Clothesline & Cowboy Boots

Time for Cinema Saturday Creative Challenge!  This week, CSCC75 is Oklahoma!

Each week, I tell DH what the Cinema theme is.  This week, he immediately said, “Oklahoma!  and broke into SONG.  ”Chicks & Ducks & Geese better scurry, when I take you out in the Surrey … & fell into the entire tune.  Are you kidding me?  You have to know my 6′2″+ big football/hockey playing DH … it floored me, I mean I stood there with my mouth open staring.  I guess as a child he was in quite a few school productions, one of which was ‘Oklahoma’.

For those of you who don’t know, here’s the ‘Surrey’ song …

Well, I definitely had something to start with this challenge for inspiration, let me tell you.  I went with the clothes line & cowboy theme from the movie.

The little Gingham origami dress instructions (freebie) can be found here over at: origami-club.  I love orgiami dresses.  I’ve made them in 1950’s style before here.  Just too much fun.  The Patterned Paper is from Martha Stewart.  Great co-ordinating papers, that I punched with SU Scallop Punch.  The “hey girl” is an alphabet stamp from making Memories Magnetic Stamps, stamped in SU Bliss Blue Ink.  Mini Clothes pins … dollar store maybe?  not sure.

The boot template can be found from Ellen Hutson.  I used an old Stampin’ Up Punch for the decorative swirl.  I think it’s called ‘wroght iron’ corner punch.  The Papers are like a faux suede, flocked kinda thing I got from Heather’s Stamping Haven.

I adored the little boot.  It would be great for a treat holder for a little boy (well, in this case, it’s a bit more girly), but you could easily turn it into a boy party favour.  I used a SU double ribbon whole punch & threw on some ribbon.

Thanks for the fun!
