Missing Mojo???

This page took me all day yesterday! I just couldn't get it to look right. The paper I had purchased some time ago to scrap pictures of my horse(you can see a portion of it on the lower left) just wasn't working as a whole page. I tried and tried putting different mats with it and nothing. Finally I gave up :(. Normally I just keep working until I make it work not this time. I arose this morning with a different outlook. Browsed through my paper again and settled on this for the background. I still hung on to the piece in the lower left corner.
This challenge was all about scrapping a place you go to get away from it all. Thus my horse, as long as I don't have to get on her LOL. I love brushing her, bathing her, walking her and playing games with her. In the barn we play hide and seek. When she was a baby, 3 months old I taught her to find me by giving her a cookie every I call her. So now I can go hide and she will look for me until she finds me and has her cookie. She also knows how to play ball, they have a special huge ball for horses to play with, she nudges it with her nose to roll it back to me after I roll it to her. She is now 7 years old and I have ridden her some, I fall off more than I ride. My husband rides her more than I do, he broke her to ride. I have many more stories to tell with more pages to come, someday I may even post her baby pictures.
I hope your not too bored with my horse stories.
I'll be back with another page not of my horse this time.
Have a great day.

Warms my heart to hear horse stories. I had to sell my about 5yrs ago. Yours is beautiful and would look wonderful no matter what you matted her on!
