Decorated Flip Flops

The May Challenge at Scrap Our Stash is FLOWERS!  Honestly, I have more flowers in my stash than I know what to do with. Lucky for me I have 3 girls! I use flowers on so many of my pages that this challenge should have been a breeze. So why was I so stumped? Because I didn’t want to do just anything, I wanted it to be something different. We bought $1 flip flops the other day at Michael’s (yeah, we’ll see how long they last!) and Christine wanted to decorate hers. So what did we add but flowers of course!  So here they are:

May 2011 CTMH Blog Hop – Buttons

Welcome to yet another Close to My Heart Blog Hop.  This month we are featuring buttons.  CTMH has many new button shapes that are absolutely adorable!

The hop forms a circle so if you are starting here, simply continue until you make your way back.  If you are coming from Nikka’s blog you are on the right track.

Supplies used are all CTMH: Cherry-O Paper Pack, Love Letter Rub-ons, Colonial White Grosgrain Ribbon, and Buttons-Pink Assortment.

As you can see from the supply list, this was a very simple page.  The scattering of buttons draws attention to the title.  The idea came to me in my sleep – just drop a handful of buttons and let them be.  This turned out to work well, giving a greater sense of randomness.  The button at the top of the page with the ribbon is strategically placed to cover up a person in the background of the photo.

Now hop on over to Tracy’s blog!

If you get lost along the way, see the previous post for a list of all the participants.
