Buttons Galore.....

....... is the challenge over at The Pink Elephant #149

I'm also entering it into the challenge at Allsorts #155  for buttons and bows although I haven't got any bows on this scrapbook page.  I did put some bows on but they just didn't look right so I took them off

Sketchbook 365 to use a layout by Wendy Mckee which is also in the June issue of  Scrap 365

When I received my birthday card from Bronwyne (my first one as a Granny) Michael had used three of the pictures with titles that read across them, happy birthday Granny, it's so cute!  I knew as soon as I saw them that they would make a good scrapbook page.

I'm going to use the yellow striped paper for my journalling but had to give it another title as well as the Flower Power.  I love the saying "Take time to smell the flowers" and felt that it would be ideal to use as with its slight modification lol  It was computer generated and printed onto Safmat (by Letraset) and each word cut out so that I could curve it rather than it being in a straight line

She's such a cutie!
The diecut edge above the photos is actually the waste from when I cut the borders which are underneath them

I don't think that she was impressed with the taste

I used some dome stickers for accent on the bottom of the page but it possibly needs something else too.  It looks a bit empty

Materials used

Layout design by Wendy Mckee
An assortment of papers from my stash including Boofle and the English Paper Company
Buttons, dome stickers and Flower Power sticker from stash
Edgeabilities by Spellbinders
Grand Calibur

  4. I adore buttons. Great use here for the arch!

  5. Just seen your reply Margaret, it's no problem and I am so pleased you shared your work.

    I don't think Martinez will want to come to Liverpool, especially after doing such a good job for you. My fav (the special one) has just signed a new contract at Real so no idea who we will get, but not impressed with the list so far.

    Hope you have a lovely weekend.
