Prairie Rose Henderson pages

I think Prairie Rose is one of the best cowgirls of the Old West. She was a rodeo star. She rode broncs!! Also did barrel racing, trick riding, calf roping, you name it! She was the first cowgirl to actually wear pantaloons to ride horses. Prairie Rose was handy with a needle and thread, too! She sewed her own costumes. I had a beaded bit of fabric in my stash so I used it on her pages. I thought that perhaps that beaded bit could have been part of one of her costumes (well, not really, but it is nice to make up these things!). The denim ruffle at the bottom of the page is actually from a little girl's skirt that I found in a thrift shop. Just cut off the ruffle and used some of it here. I am going to use parts of the skirt in other projects.

On Tuesday I am off to Virginia to visit my son and his family. My granddaughter's fifth birthday is Wednesday and my son's birthday is next Saturday. Big family birthday party next Sunday to celebrate. Can't wait!

After I get back (July 27th), I want to have a give-away going on my blog. So stay tuned!
