Scrap It Girl - October challenge

New month and new challenge at Scrap It Girl! This month's theme is buttons - you need to use at least 12 buttons in your project. I have to admit that I am not a huge fan of buttons. Sure I used then here or there but they are not on my list of favorite scrapbooking supplies. Remember those big bags of Foof-a-la buttons? I bought a bag of pink buttons years ago and I still have more than plenty left.

This layout started with pink buttons. I made the button flower first, actually I made several but only one made it's way on the layout. After that I went though my 2001 storage album and found a picture to scrap. Looking at the picture I decided that it will work great with the leftovers from the Jenni Bowlin September kit. So the layout was born.

Supplies: cardstock (Bazzill Basics), patterned paper (My Mind's Eye, Jillibean Soup), stamp (Jenni Bowlin), buttons (Autumn Leaves), liquid adhesive (Close To My Heart), twine (Making Memories), word stickers (My Mind's Eye), cupcake sticker (Heidi Grace), fabric paper (unknown), smooch ink (Clearsnap), border punch (Fiskars), markers (Faber-Castell)

I stamped an exclusive stamp from the kit on Jillibean Soup paper and on white watercolor paper with Faber Castell big brush markers. The peach colored twine is from Making Memories.

The small buttons in the button flower are covered with Liquid Glass from CTMH. It gives them a dimensional look and helps to hold them together. The cute baby image is cut out of the fabric paper that I had forever in my stash. I even can't remember the manufacturer. I added a little smooch ink to the tiny flowers on the fabric.

No it's your turn. It should be easy! You can submit two projects for this challenge. Don't forget to link back to the Scrap It Girl site! If you need a little extra help to get motivated you can check this awesome prize that Dawn from Scrap It Girl Design Team put together:

I know it would motivate me ;-)
