Here I go, combining challenges again! Pink Ninjas is up with the prompt: Collections. Now, whenever I'm asked what I collect, I always first think 'scrapbooking supplies.' True enough, but what I actually hunt for within that are buttons.
I love the buttons that I have found at antique shops and flea markets. A whole bag of fabulous buttons for $2... um, HECK YEAH I'll take them!
Scrapjacked! this week has some wonderful inspiration from Vanessa. You can see her layout here. Play along over there, the creativity is mind blowing! My buttons page is a jack of Vanessa's page.
And (I'm not done yet) a site I just found out about is ScrapFIT. The new prompt is to do a page without people. This prompt helped me come to my 'buttons' conclusion. The first idea I had for the collections challenge at Pink Ninjas was going to be that I collected hugs from my son (...cheesey, but adorable).
I think this turned out pretty well, and I'm happy that I have another page for me (I don't do a lot of those). Thanks for looking! I have to say that this is one of my favorite pages lately. So girly for the girl that usually scraps a boy!
Supplies: Pink Paislee (pp), Pink Paislee (sticker lettering), Tattered Angels (tag), Jenni Bowlin (chipboard), Creative Chaos (journal spot), Half Full Martini (scallop spot and phone fussy cut), Prima (pearls), misc. ribbon and buttons, twine
