Lasting Memories #326 - Buttons, Brad, Bling

Hello everyone! I hope that you have had a good first week of the new year! This first week of the new year has brought us freezing cold temperatures, a little bit of snow, and our first snow days of the season! Now it can warm up and we can be done with the snow! If only it worked like that!

We've got a new challenge up over at Lasting Memories today! For January we are focusing on using up some of our stash. This week's challenge is

LM #326 - Buttons, Brads, or Bling

Use some buttons, brads, or bling on your layout. You can use a little, or a lot, use just one of the items, or use them all.

For my layout I have used some wood buttons and some bling. 

Supplies used - Patterned Paper - grey background - Echo Park - Capture Life, red strip - Echo Park - Family Reunion, all other paper is from Simple Stories - Life In Color. Wood buttons - American Crafts, bling - Studio G,  other wood veneer and doily transparencies - from my stash.

I just love these photos of Ada when she was 9 months old. She and Abby were down for the night, and we decided to go to town to pick up a couple of movies and some snacks. I don't think Ada was very happy with our impromptu trip to town. I think she would have rather stayed home! I love that serious look on her face, and the way she is hugging her sock monkey!

My layout was based off of this October 2016 sketch from Picture This! Challenges

Head on over to Lasting Memories to see the layouts from the rest of the design team. If you have some buttons, brads, or bling in your stash that needs to be used up, why don't you join our challenge this week? You have until January 27th to play along with us!
