A present for RD...

I really wanted this picture to be at the bottom of the post... but it would not so much do what I wanted it to do! Anyways... pretend.


Ok...

a few weeks back we went to Mississippi for the rodeo finals. Rd did awesome, ended up winning a few checks and a really beautiful buckle... and hurting his arm.. which is much better now :) We both wanted to do something neat with his numbers (they wear numbers on their backs the entire finals - 4 different papers for every night with the nights main sponsor on them). He said something that involved burning the edges and I was thinking something with a shadow box. He just agreed not knowing what the world a shadow box was. Sweet boy. 

So after a few quick buys at hobby lobby for a shadow box, random antique stores for a glass boot, a bull bell and the perfect black horseshoe, and oh pictures from wolf camera.... 

These are action prints. I took a frame from the his rides that I recorded each night on my digital camera and then did some action frames. I just discovered that you could do this today and I fell in love! 
A little glass boot.... Cinderella would love this! haha....
Those are the numbers... before I talked Creeddaddy into burning them... 

...and the cutest bull bell... in the world!

I was going to wait and give it to him for Valentine's Day... but yeah I can't wait... so he is going to get it tomorrow after church! Yah! If I don't give it to him tomorrow then I will just end up telling him about it... I have problems keeping surprises from people :)
