Buttons Layout

I love the site Stuck On You Sketches (SOUS)! They come up with some unique ideas. For example this weeks challenge is to use buttons in your project.
As luck would have it, we had spent our anniversary at Disney World with our grandchildren (Alexis, Nicholas, Matteo, Mia and Cecilia)  and their parents. When they had registered at the hotel, they told them we would be there on our anniversary so the hotel gave us these Mickey Anniversary buttons. It turns out that when we boarded the bus to go to one of the parks there were 4 other couples also spending their special day at Disney also! No matter where we went in the parks people were wishing us a Happy Anniversary,what a way to feel special!!!
     Anyway I wanted to hold onto these Disney buttons so this challenge could not have come at a better time! I had a Disney paper pack and lo and behold there was one with the button pattern! The title was from the Mickey Font cut at 1" for both letters and shadow. I must start doing more journaling so I decided to cut the sign @ 3.93 wide x 2.04 wide. Since the challenge was to use buttons, I secured the tag to the sign using, tada: buttons! I went thru my wedding album and found this pic taken at my Matron of Honors home after the reception. I love this pic. The frame is cut from Accent Essentials@ a height of 4.25 which gives you a perfect inside frame of 3", just what I needed for this pic. Of course, keeping with the challenge, I used my CB to emboss the frame with "buttons" and decided to add real buttons to the frame.
     I added the most recent picture of us and used the same technique for this frame as well. I just had to finish off with some rhinestones. Hope you all like my "take" on the button challenge.

You know of all the times we've gone to Disneyland we never got 1st visit buttons and we got one this time for my baby as it was his first visit (we just packed up and went this past week!!!)
I think this is really great, the pp's and the BIG button! That is wonderful, sounds like that was one memorable trip!!!!
