     Good morning ladies and fellow crafters  Pinquette Mary here with a Christmas layout using a fabulous PP fabric button on display. Have you tried these buttons yet? If not you really should they are so awesome, useful and really make your project pop!

     I know it is Spring but I was cleaning and came across this adorable photo but the frame was broken. This is from Christmas 2006 when our oldest grand daughter and grandson were about to turn 4 (no they are not twins!) and we had 3 babies: the girl was 3 mos older than the boys who were born 6 days apart! This was taken on Christmas Eve after they all got in their PJ's. Needless to say it was NOT a quiet Christmas, lol. It was so much fun though to have them all together for the first time. 
     I had some "stickers" in my stash that had the Joy, Love, Peace tickets and they just seemed to go so well with the background paper I chose. The holly and berries are also from the same pack. I love how the berries are "buttons" but I thought they needed more dimension so I added some paper glaze to make them stand out more. The ornament journal card was also from the same stack.

     I really love how this corner of the page came out. I used the Pinque Peacock gingham check fabric covered button as the focal point and added some fabric poinsettia flowers to fill in the gaps. I also used some paper leaves that I made which have a holly type leaf print. After I cut the leaves I misted them a little water and ran them threw a crimper to also add some texture. The bakers twine completes the look. Oh and I had this acrylic snowflake button that I added on top of my button.ow cute is that, lol?
      By the way, we are Blessed to have 3 more grandchildren since then: another girl and 2 more boys. Let the fun begin!!!!

for ALL the details on how to enter and there is even an awesome prize involved! :)
                                                    I'd love to hear from you!!
