'Cute As A Button'

The sun is shining brightly, so it has warmed the day up nicely.

Speaking of sunshine...I think my layout is full of it....


Mason is always willing to pose for Nana and he loved the Bachelor Buttons in the garden.

Here are a couple of closeups....


I cut the gear shape from a Silhouette file and sanded the embossed dots to expose the core colour of the Coredinations cardstock.

I created the flowers with different sizes of circle punches....roughed up the paper a bit, inked the edges and layered them up with a button....to go with the theme.



Product List - Echo Park - Lori Whitlock - All About A Boy papers and stickers and Little Boy line, Coredinations cardstock, Arrow paper is Imaginisce. Amy Tangerine paper leaf. The twine and buttons are from my stash.

I used the Let's Get Sketchy Week 3 sketch.....


I was also inspired by the Silhouette Challenges -Anything Goes
and
Beyond Grey Challenges - BGC #68 - To make your own embellishments.
and
Marie-Christine's Sketch N Scrap Challenge #2 to use Orange & blue and three different buttons.


Have a wonderful evening! Stay Crafty!!!
