Moxxie's Western Round Up Blog Hop

HOWDY!!!  It's that time of the month to join us for
February's Muse-A-Palooza Blog Hop!  This month you could win the entire Western Round Up collection.  This collection has an amazing color line in denim blues, rich golds, country browns and kerchief reds, which will be perfect for all your cowboys and cowgirls!  So grab your boots, chaps and
cowboy hats and follow us on this wild west adventure!!

I knew as soon as I saw this line that I was finally going to scrap a favorite picture of my oldest son...especially when I saw this chipboard album from Want2Scrap:
 I entered this in the Time2Create Challenge over at Want2Scrap which runs through the end of this month.  Anyway, the album and the paper - a match made in heaven, right?  Now let's check out all the Moxxie goodness on the inside!

I **love** this brown paper with the all over cowboy boots and the "Buckaroo" sticker.  It looks like it has been stitched on denim!  I mounted all of the stickers on chipboard then sanded and inked the edges.
 You can see on the page below that I pleated a strip of the plaid paper.  It's a really easy way to add dimension.  The cool circular embellishment was cut from Moxxie paper with a Spellbinders die...and that cute little star in the center is right off of the sticker sheet!

The reverse side of the red paper looks like weathered boards.  I like keeping things simple in a mini-album with the focus on the pictures and tags for journaling.  The oval die-cut adds just enough embellishment when paired with a few letter stickers and a laser cut chipboard word (from Want2Scrap) painted red and coated with Glossy Accents.
This next page is one of my favorites...a little fussy cutting with a craft knife goes a long way!
Here's a pocket page filled with tags cut from several of the coordinating papers in this line.
These last few pages really show off some of the cool die cuts and stickers:
And here is one last peek at the detail on the front cover.  I used my Crop-O-Dile to punch holes in  the front cover so I could dangle the little  heart charm on the chain. 
(I am entering this sweet little mini album in Want2Scrap's Time to Create Challenge!)
