How low can you go

These photos were taken several years ago at Trunk or Treat. This is for a challenge at Turtle Soup and for the challenge to use buttons at Scrappy Moms Stamps blog. My buttons are the 3 leaves at the top. It was nice to be able to use these buttons as they have been in my stash for a long time.

Sweet Little Girl

We took our grandchildren to Fort Mackinac a couple years back and the youngest one put on one of the soldier coats. I used an overlay that I have had for years, use a die for the doily and made the flowers from some scraps I had laying around.

This layout is for a challenge at Turtle Soup and for Party Time Tuesdays. Thanks for looking.

Spec the horse

My turn at Just Imagine Crafts. Today I picked a layout as my example for you. I used the circle cutter stretched as far out as it would go and cut out a circle and then cut another circle out of the center of that. I used the punch 309 on the inside of the circle with the 6.8 Kreaxions Positioning Parts for Corner Punch. I added twine around the circle for a rustic feel as well as putting burgandy paper behind to make the flowers pop out. I made the button flowers and added a few other flowers for fill in. I used a popsicle stick at the top and distressed it to make it look rustic.
