Denim is part of our lives. I don't know of anyone who doesn't have something in denim, either a pair of jeans, a skirt, shirt, jumper, and those fabulous overalls! I go through phases where I wear jeans all the time, then a shirt, than a skirt, and I'd wear overalls all the time and not care what anyone thinks!
Western stamps of cowgirls have always been one of my favorite style of stamps. When I saw Cowgirl Marci at La-La Land Crafts, I had to have her! I used her to participate in the box challenge over at the La-La Land Craft facebook page and used a tutorial that my great friend and stamping idol, Suzanne Dean, did on making a Hot Cocoa container!
Isn't this cutie just adorable? I love her lasso! I colored her with my copics and Spectrum Noir pens, added some Stickles to her hat and petticoat and her bandana, and some distressed ink in Antique Linen around the edges of my little cow poke. She was cut out with Spellbinders circles and scalloped circles and I used my Martha Stewart edger on the top flap. The papers are from one of my favorite paper designers, Anna Griffin, called Fleur Rouge Collection. Love the colors! I tied some red and white baker's twine around the top to close it.
This is a close up of this little roper.

I love doing these type of projects and hope to do a lot more of them! I love filling them with all sorts of things, like Crystal Lite packets, different types of candy, stationary, bath and beauty products, just about anything! Give the tutorial a try and go over and pick up some of these sweet images from La-La Land Crafts! Have a great, ranchy day!
