BLOG HOP AT SCRAP THAT!

GOOD MORNING EVERYONE!

This weekend we are having a BLOG HOP over at SCRAP THAT! Each Design Team member will be posting a "button technique" on their blog! So while you are having fun, hopping around... you also get to learn some new techniques and get some new and fresh ideas! I used the design team kit this month to create this layout:

I am a big fan of using buttons... and I find no layout is complete without buttons!For this Layout I decided to use the basic grey rub-ons and add them to the white button in my kit. I then used the button to add it to the "o" in the word forever! I also LOVE to use buttons as photo corners and borders! Here I used buttons in the corner of the photo! I decided not to dress up the buttons like I usualy do with DMC thread... instead I left them simple and plain to focus on the photo of my daughter.

Don't forget to visit the blogs of the other design team members:

Sarah
Mara
Amanda N
Amanda W
Sharon (GDT)

Have fun blog hoppin'!


A little bit more about the layout:
I got this kit on Monday... and on that night my daughter says to me before going to bed "mommy, I want to be with you forever"... and that's when I wanted to scrap it!... My heart melted when she said that to me! How could it not!
