Pony Rides

During the summer someone has to watch after the little people.  I found a great place that is right around the corner from the office.  Each day during the summer the school has some kind of activity planned for the kids.  They have water days, cooking, crafts and other fun things.  A few years ago they brought in Pony Rides. 
Syd was about 20 months old in these pictures.  She squealed with delight when the attendant put her on the Pony.  It was hilarious!
For this LO I used Paper dolls and Old West.
I picked up the papers at a crop for .10 each, what a steal!  I loved that they were the same design but definitely boy and girl.  The colors in the paper matched perfectly with Stampin Up Sage Shadow, Melon Mambo and Soft Suede.
I added some bling to the girly side and popped up the horseshoe on both.
I tied some twine around the wooden barrel and popped it up too.
I colored the mane and tail of each horse using water color crayons and a blender pen.  I love the wiggly eyes but you already knew that.  I added a matching pink bow on the girly pony.
I was going to leave the wheelbarrow empty but a friend had these cute flowers that were perfect.  I added both colors in light and dark to tie everything together.  Then added a few to the opposite page too and blinged the middles.
I think they turned out pretty cute and the kids loved them! 
Hope you enjoyed!
