Lucky Milestones

I made this LO for Scrappin-n-Chattin's Lucky Challenge for this month. We were to use the words "Luck" or "Lucky" in the title in honor of St Patrick's Day! I entitled it Lucky Milestones, because Pirate is just learning how to jump and I had a new experience at Gables Run Equestrian Center with Laura & Pirate!  I decided to use All About Boys Stack Pirate paper since Laura's horse's name is Pirate! Then I remembered I have horse paper in my 8x8 All About Boys Stack so I used that for the picture mats! I used the subtitle, "A Day in the Life", because it was a day in Laura's life that I experienced! :) I also included a Sticko horse sticker and arrow brads from the journaling to each pic. The journaling tells about each pic- "Laura on Pirate getting ready for her riding lesson (top right pic)", "Pirate had just jumped (middle pic)", and "Laura is twitching the horse while Sarah trims him (bottom pic)." I was using their Nikon camera as well as mine, so I wasn't as good keeping up with the jumps on my camera! LOL! I have several more pics to scrap and may save some for a mini-album for Laura! I posted the pic on FB and she hasn't seen it yet that I know of. I can't reach her on her cell. She didn't have minutes earlier and just tried texting her and it finally went through! I can't wait to hear her comments! :) I had an eyeopening experience that day and look forward to going back and helping more! I decided to leave the word, "Pirate" on the top pic mat since the horse's name is Pirate. The ranch is kinda away from civilization, but is fun & I just have to learn to get used to the dung smell! She has mentioned about having me over for a horse movie sleepover so that should be fun! We have a lot of similarities and are learning more as we are around each other more! :) We are supposed to go back to Accidental Artist tomorrow afternoon. TFL & have a good day!! :)

What a fun layout & experience you had, Amanda. It sounds like you and Laura are building a great friendship. I hope you do get to go see Pirate again.
