Roundin' Up a Few Western Themed Decorations

We recently had a Western-themed luncheon to say thank you to our church school volunteers, and I enjoyed helping plan and create the decorations!  For our centerpieces, we used Mason jars, filled with dry kidney beans, and I created some rosettes using Western-themed designer papers (mostly retired designs from Stampin' Up!).  It was pretty quick and easy to create the rosettes using the Simply Scored Tool, scoring whole sheets at once, then cutting to the desired size.  

The chalkboard signs were unfinished frames I found for $1 each, and "finished" by swiping Crumb Cake and Soft Suede inks across them to create a rustic wood look.  I placed a piece of Basic Black Card Stock in the frame, then wrote the message with chalk.
