button love...

I have a slight obsession with buttons. All shapes, sizes, colours and styles. I love their feel; their simplicity..adding them to projects is like adding icing to a cake...it's just magical. I used to love looking for bottles of buttons at the thrift stores; such a treasure hunt. My aunt feeds my obsession with gifts of buttons, trims, ribbons and other such goodies. I am  a very lucky gal!
                       (The obsession organized...be still my button lovin' heart!)

Since I have such the collection of buttons, I decided that I needed to stop hoarding them(as per my moms request, as more buttons are sure to find their way to me) and use them on projects. So, inspired by one of Bety's cards, I decided to put my own spin on her layout. I couldn't find the exact post I was looking for...but don't be disappointed with me..browsing through her blog is like being a kid in a candy store.Give it a peek!
I was going for soft and feminine. I am drawn to pinks, creams, yellows and browns lately.
 I just had to include a piece of sheet music.. a shabby and glittered Maya Road heart..some fabric scraps..and a heart shaped button.. *swoon*
Basic Grey patterned papers, Ali Edwards stamp..trinket pin and a tea stained tag round out my little creation today.. I loved this layout and colour combo that I decided to make two..
And here they are.. similar yet slightly different. I had fun creating these.. and hope their recipients enjoy them as much as I do!
Thanks for stopping by today.. be sure to check back for my next post.. it's worth the wait-a little blog candy giveaway..you won't want to miss it.
