Howdy! It's Throwback Thursday Partner!

Emma at My Creative Time has done it again!! She's taken one of my favorite "old" Cricut cartridges and set up a Throwback Thursday Challenge. The cartridge we are using is Paper Doll Dress Up which I think was one of the first I bought. It has soooo much on it~cars, spaceships, dinosaurs, castles, wagons, animals and more. It also has one of the best fences on any cartridge IMO. Delanie and I saw this one at Michaels for $19.99 so if you don't have it, GO GET IT!!!!
So besides using Paper Doll Dress Up, Emma's challange was to do something 3-D or altered (ya know anything but a card). I chose to do this cute paint can using my neighbor's son, Henry (3), as insperation. EVERYTHING is about horses with him and yes, he has a horse head on a stick! I did have to kinda paper piece the horse but I think it looks great! Oh and the "Howdy" came from Create a Critter which I found by using the search on Rose Lee!
I've made these paint cans before and the neat thing is my wonderful husband, Ed, (love ya babe!) cuts a slit in the top of the can so the kiddos can use them as banks. I usually use them as the gift "bag" and put some goodies inside.
This is the back of the can. All the paper is Bazzil except for the background which is from an old CTMH Father's Day kit. The only thing I wish I had was some cut Peachy Keen face stamps! Maybe I'll be Emma's lucky winner!!!! (fingers crossed!)
