Hello and thanks for stopping by! We're hopping with celebration and excitement this week :) Yep, we're having a blog hop in celebration of our 200th post Lasting Memories! Our challenge? BUTTONS! We are looking for buttons, buttons everywhere on those layouts this week! Along the way, you'll see that some of us are offering a little candy on our blogs but you have to visit us to see who! We've also gotten a little creative with our buttons so we hope you'll be inspired! You should have arrived here from Michele's blog and if this is your first stop, please be sure to hop back to Lasting Memories to start the hop so you don't miss a thing!
Each of us has a letter for you to collect that will spell out a scrapbook themed word, so don't forget to jot down my letter which you'll see below. Once you've completed the hop, leave your answer in the comment section back at Lasting Memories. Comments will be moderated so there's no peeking! Then you have to enter your LO and guess what?! Our grand prize winner will receive a $25 gift certificate from A2Z Scrapbooking Store!!
Awesome right?? Oh!! And one MORE thing! I'm also offering up some candy: Leave a comment to win this.
Now time to reveal my complete layout! There's no photo because it is a gift. The pink/purple is a shiny metallic paper so it didn't photograph well. The "adorable" is done in crystals which didn't photograph well either. I'm sorry:( This is MUCH prettier in person.
Tip for making the heart: I freehand drew the heart frame out of heavy pink cardstock. I then glued the edge of the lace on the back of the heart, so that the lace would be exposed behind the buttons. I randomly glued buttons, brads, and sequins around the frame filling in all of the exposed areas. I used various sizes of glues dots from mini to pop dots depending on the size of the embellishment.
Your next stop is Darcy's blog!! And don't forget to jot down my letter which is O.
Have fun and happy hopping!
