Pimp that Preserve ~ Inspiration 4 (contest info included) wellpreservedpimpsthatpreserve November

It doesn’t have to be holiday, or winter themed! I just needed an excuse to use this great cowhide upholstery remnant that I found at MacFab. When I found the little texas souvenir spoon it seemed like a perfect match. My grandmother collected these spoons, she had tonnes of them…now they are in my Mum’s possesion. It was fun going through the (50+) spoons….ranging from LasVegas, to Saskatchewan and PEI to California. There was even one from the St.Albert Figure Skating Club (of which I was a member a looong time ago). Talking about my grandmother and hearing about the spoons, a lot of which had been brought back by my dad from business trips or from holidays). This one also gave me an excuse to use some of the fonts in the wild west font pack I bought a while ago…i love them, but they have limited use for my clients Pimp that Preserve ~ Inspiration 4 (contest info included) wellpreservedpimpsthatpreserve November
