What happens in the barn...

... does NOT always stay, in the barn!

Luckily, for us, Want2Scrap© makes a fantastic Barn-shaped chipboard album
to tell the story of what happens in YOUR barn, or on your farm, or even at your
barn-themed BIRTHDAY party... Whatever your need, Want2Scrap© chipboard
can help you capture memories and moments, near and dear!

How GRATEFUL was I, to have this delightful barn as a background, to
tell the story of how we surprised our 7 year old boy with his very first
horse? ... Well, pull up a barrel, bench, or your favorite pony, and I'll
walk you THROUGH IT! {Insert: YEEE HAWWWW, here!}

It could be a post, in itself, going over the details of the cover work I did
on this baby, but some of the fine points on the, EVER SO MUCH FUN,
wood-grain technique, can be reviewed in my post, here, if you are interested.
The most important aspect to cover page design, is that YOU like it, it's fun
to make, and that you glue everything down like you're planning for an earth-
quake. Don't want to risk losing ANYTHING on a keepsake like this!

FUN paper, stamps and tons of BLING and Nestaboard™, and the inside page
is off to the races! {But wait: there's MORE!} Not one to leave out the details
of my sweet lil' story, I created a mini photo book, BEHIND the main photo (#1):

On the inside, photo #2 & #3 - depicting the early developments of
"what was IN the barn!" Our darling and eccentric, horse trainer,
feeding the intrigue... She handed the birthday boy the special "fetching"
stick {Yes, the HORSE knew how to fetch!}, tied with ribbon.... My boy,
not having a CLUE, was perfectly piqued in curiosity!

Then our sweet horse trainer says to my boy, "Why don't you check
on PeeWee, HE has a birthday treat for you..." {Pictures #4 & #5}
As he reaches in and sees the horse, with his halter
already on and lead rope loosely tied, the boy turns to us,
and wonders, out loud... "Is Pee Wee... for ME?"

Page #2 shows the joy of the answer. Happiness, pride, love = WANTED!

A stroll up to the arena, as the shock begins to lift...
and yes, more hidden photos!

... And some journaling!

This page was just too darling for words -
all it needed was the RIGHT paper, a TON
of fabby bling and CHECK OUT those CLOUDS!
{I adore the VAST and open range of selection in
Want2Scrap©'s amazing stock of laser cut shapes!}
Some playful combination of our new Nestabling™
Sprightly Sprockets, and Nestabling™, Heart Circles
Brown Rhinestone, with Finesse Swirls, Brown
, and THIS page has all the Western
you need, while riding bareback!

{Don't worry - it's safe! It's ANOTHER fabulous design
by Want2Scrap©} I loved how it set the stage for this
nostalgic page. Check out the row of chunky, blingy bits
that were from a left-over piece of Nestabling™ Heart
Circles, Brown Rhinestone
- LOVE the accent of color!

Then, another page, perked up with JUST the right laser cut
shape, and some super fun BLING accenting! {LOVE this album!}

On the LAST, inside page, of my album, MORE delicious die cut
action - Can you stand the POSSE of rough riders, haunting my
boy! {*Gasp!* I adore those cowboys!} A stunning circle of bling
to accent, ANOTHER hidden photo flap... {YES, there's MORE!}

MORE journaling... MORE boy on his wonderful,
WONDERFUL horse... {For more detailed instruction
on how to add more photos into your album and secure
the enclosure with magnets, be sure to check out this
post, right here!

And finally, because I HAD to - the BACK side of the album!
Complete with a picture window, created with a left-over photo
& some painted chipboard strips... Just HAD to complete the look!

FUN IN THE BARN! That's what I'm talkin' about!

Want2Scrap© is sooooooooo busy, right now! We're offering sales
and deals, almost daily! It's SUCH an exciting time to be

Welcome Little One for Want2Scrap!

One of my dear friends will soon be blessed with her first baby soon. I thought I would work ahead and make a card for when the little one comes.

I wanted it to be a cute, colorful card and not your traditional baby colors...I wanted it to have a fresh and fun feel to it.

These Silver Rhinestone Swirls by Want2Scrap™ are perfect for this. I love that they stick to just about anything...lace included. No extra glue was necessary!

Lets not forget the Silver Nestabling™ Circles. They are a great way to frame or highlight something! I love how they draw attention to the circle and the darling bicycle in it, so dang cute!

Want2Scrap Guest Designer and SPECIAL SAVINGS!

Our Guest Designer this month is:

Hello from Minnesota. I have always enjoyed being creative. As a child my mother was always celebrating my creativity by sending me to art classes, and providing me with crafty art supplies and books. I am always happy to share my love for crafts and art projects. I enjoy making cards for friends, Operation Write Home, and some local charities. I enjoy volunteer work. I create scrapbook pages for both others and myself, as well as home decor and gift items, and jewelry for myself and others. When I'm not getting inky or playing with paper and beads, I like getting together with friends for karaoke or a movie, or enjoying some music. I also love cooking and baking.

Help us welcome Allie! We are excited to have her with us this month!

That's right! Half off all Chipboard Albums, Grand Chipboard Albums, Chipboard Words, Shapes, Embellishments, and NESTABOARD™
