Theme Linky Party and WINNERS!!!

It's another Linky Party...and Winners announced!
Corinna at Surfin' Through Second is hosting a Classroom Theme Linky Party.  So I'm going to share everything that I have done so far for my Cowboy/Western theme for next year....some of these pics you have seen in previous posts.

This is a sample of things that I made for my Helper Board.  My Welcome Wagon is a small group of kiddos that welcome newbies to our class and help them learn the ropes.

This is a small sample of my notebook that I created.

...and a sample of pages in the kiddos' H.O.R.S.E. binder, desk plate, horse clip art and Wanted poster {both of which I drew}.

Cute cowboy stuff that I bought at the teacher store

More stuff that I bought

CUTE borders!!!

The Buckaroo Board area that I have started to work on in my room already...more work needed though!

My Buckaroo Board upclose...much still to do!

I set this up in my dining room so I could share these goodies from Shindigz.
The glitter horse shoes came in three different sizes.  The barbwire garland is so cute, and I love the red barn backdrop.
Adorable red book barn that I found here...and my hubby is using this for inspiration to build ME a book barn!  I adore that man!  Thanks, honey!
And last but not least, my cowboy and cowgirl puppets.  I adore them!  And that brings me to my WINNERS for my "naming my cowboy/cowgirl puppets"...
I had SO MANY wonderful names and ideas for these two cuties.  THANK YOU TO EVERYONE THAT PARTICIPATED.  I have decided to let my kiddos name the puppets after we share several cowboy/cowgirl books {that were suggested}.  Four people suggested that I let the kiddos name them, so I put those four in the hat first.  So, I will announce the winners now...
For the naming part of my contest...and winner of the above prizes is...
Christina doesn't have a blog, so I will contact her my email.  Congrats, Christina!
So then I put the other three in the drawing with everyone else...And the winner of the above prizes is...
I'll be notifying Peggy by email as well.
Thank you all for sharing in the contest!
Now be sure to head over to Corinna's at Surfin' Through Second for lots more theme ideas!
Blessings to all,
