Can I Get A YEE-HAW!!!

Put on your boots...
Grab your cowgirl hat...
and yell YEE-HAW!

Welcome to the InStyle Stamps June Blog Hop!

Our Theme this month is:
"Cowboys"

We have lots of fun in store for you today! The DT put on their cowgirls hats and went to work on all the cowboy projects! There are many new releases over at InStyle Stamps today so make sure you head over to the store to check them out and place your order....let me tell you they are ALL AWESOME and you definitely don't want to miss them (besides the fun cowboy/girl images you see today there are also new sports, and school images as well)!!! Like last month, after you go and view all of the other DT's projects (their links are in my side bar), make sure you head on over to the InStyle Stamps Blog to vote for your favorite project (I hope it's mine...hee hee)! The DT member who gets the most votes will win a prize....AND YOU CAN WIN A PRIZE JUST FOR VOTING!!! All you have to do is place your vote; then leave a comment on the post with the poll to be entered for a PRIZE! You need to leave a comment to be entered into the drawing. The contest will remain open until 11:59pm EST on Saturday, June 27th, and winners will be announced on Monday, June 29th.

Now....onto my project:
I picked Cowgirl Kimmie as my image for this month....of course I loved that she had my name!!! She is so darn adorable, and when I saw these Debbie Mumm papers at my LSS I knew they would be perfect for my project! When I think of cowboys, I think of the western theme of cowboys with the sheriffs. I immediately knew I wanted to do something with a star to represent the sheriff, so I found this fun wooden star keepsake box and the rest is history!(Please click on any pictures to see them bigger.)
Here's my Cowgirl Kimmie card and star keepsake box:
Close up of the card...aren't these papers so adorable?
A close up of Kimmie, she's a darling:
Here's the keepsake box. I painted the edges of the top and inside of the box with a metallic white paint and it's so pretty and shimmery IRL!
Another view of the keepsake box so that you can see the fun paper:

The top of the keepsake box....again, look at that awesome paper...love the cowgirl rodeo paper, and of course it's PINK!!! Woo-Hoo!
The inside of the keepsake box. I shurnk Cowgirl Kimmie so that she would fit on the inside. She's about 1" x 1" here.

And then some more detailed pictures:
