Okay, Okay, I admit it! For this week's button challenge over at Practical Scrappers I really hit a wall. I tried and tried to think of something unique to do with buttons....and I failed before I even got started really. So, I guess you can say that I attempted to make up for the/lack of button uniqueness with the quantity of buttons I chose to use for this layout.
I do have a great idea now that I am on the subject of a lack of being unique in the way I used the buttons on this layout.... how 'bout you go ahead and join us for this button challenge at Practical Scrappers and you can inspire all of us on how to use buttons in a unique way! Doesn't that sound fun?!
As for this layout, I did do two things I don't normally do. I wrote the journaling in my own handwriting (yuck, I really hate it, and you can see why I don't normally do so, because I think my writing actually DETRACTS from the layout.... but alas, I am trying to love my handwriting since I am reading the book by Heidi Swapp that is suppose to help me learn to write better and love my writing too). The second thing that I did but don't normally do is keep my embellishments to a minimum using almost exclusively buttons, because I didn't want to detract from THAT FACE! :-)
Okay... I think that is it for now... if you want to see what I wrote for the journaling...just click on the photograph, I believe it is large enough read (if you can actually read my writing - ha!)
A whole bunch of stuff that I wrote on a piece of paper that I misplaced... ugh. :-)
