playing with buttons, butterflies and burlap

I shared a new layout on the Noel Mignon blog yesterday and wanted to share it here as well.

For this page I used the Sweet & Simple classic kit (did you know that they have a Project Life-ish kit now?)

When the Fancy Pants "Burlap and Bouquets" collection was released one of the things that stuck out most to me was the burlap bows and I'd been saving it to use on a fun project. I thought I might use it for a home decor item or for a hair bow or something but decided instead to use it on this page.

I really liked the collage-y feel of the October Afternoon paper I used for the background but didn't want it to overshadow my photograph of this cute girl so I used a piece of Crate Paper Road Trip patterned paper (with the white brick) to soften it a bit. I added lots of buttons from October Afternoon and really like how this turned out: 

I added some of these cute chipboard frames to my page and was adding buttons later when I got the idea to add some buttons inside the little slide frame. I think it turned out cute!

I also added some Heidi Swapp Color Shine mist to a few of the wooden butterflies to add some sparkle to my page. 

Thanks for stopping by today!
