Buttons Up!

A few years ago I came across a blog where the blogger had created a form where she could list all the pages she wanted to create for her scrapbook. Helped keep track of all the events that she wanted to scrapbook, which one had pictures printed, which pages was journalled, titled, and when she completed a page she crossed it off the list. At the time I thought it was a great idea. In fact I blogged about it back then. I got great satisfaction from crossing a page off of my list. I had strayed from that list and decided to do it again. Well My list is 8 pages long. In fact for the button challenge I scrapbooked my youngest son's 2nd birthday. (He's 4 1/2 now) So I have some catching up to do. But I did get to cross off the birthday page!!!

Buttons and I are acquaintances... not friends. I always seem to have trouble with using buttons. It's the type of embellishment that I rarely think of pulling out. So this challenge was a little challenging for me. And I got to use the badge buttons for the first time which I stamped in cow print.

Item used for this project are:

Stamp Sets:

My Farm D1219 (retired)
Notice The Detail D1378


Chocolate Z2111
Cocoa Z2114


Kraft Cardstock Z1375
Cranberry Cardstock 1272
Animal Cookie B&T Duos (retired)


Badge Buttons Z1397
Red Assortment Buttons Z1369
Green Assortment Buttons Z1372

The barn was cut out using my Slice Elite.

So here is a picture of the final results. Buttons and all.
