Buttons and Bows

A new month means a new scrapbook challenge at Just Add Ink. This month the challenge is to add buttons and bows to your layout.

I created a very girly page (not my usual style with four boys I must say) to scrap a favourite picture of my niece and myself. I started with the Tea Time Simply Scrappin' Kit and added in a few extra elements.

My favourite part of the layout is definately the grouping of flowers. I made rolled rose style flowers from a circle punched out of patterned paper and then added those to the centre of a scallop circle flower.  I filled out the group with Boho Blossoms flowers in two sizes and some sweet little flower buttons from the Twitterpatted button pack.

I added some bling to the small flowers with Crystal Effects and glitter. Looking at that photo above I might go back and stitch those buttons on if I can find a small enough needle - those button holes are teeny.

The sticker sheets in the Simply Scrappin Kit are great for layering and adding extra elements to the layout plus you know they co-ordinate. Everything was inked with Early Espresso Ink and I also stamped an extra flourish in the top right corner with my favourite swirly flourish Baroque Motifs (which is sadly retiring).

Thanks for stopping by
