This next page was designed with a few things in mind.  First, it's Craft Challenge reveal time at Child's Play Challenges.  This time, an item I can seriously relate to....BUTTONS!  Buttons, buttons everywhere.  Not really, but there are quite a few on my page.  Buttons are probably the most versatile of all scrappy embellishments.  Use them as is, with thread, alter them, create shapes, banners, and they don't even have to be all the same....But that's just my opinion.

I'm weird.  Sometimes I get an idea in my head and I just have to find a way to do it. On this page, it was the buttons as sun rays.  I know the sun is large, but it made me so happy while I was creating it.   I decided to also use some washi, but it was so transparent, I needed to add something, so I sewed down the middle of each washi ray.  Regardless, the rays point to the title,  photo and journaling.  So I think it all works. I began this page by looking through some sketches. This page is inspired by Inspired Blueprints #91.

I am also hosting this weeks Issue Challenge at Club CK: Use only patterned paper to create your LO.  This is something I've been doing a lot lately.  With so little time to scrap this spring, when I do have some time, it's much easier and faster to grab a few papers from a collection. I already know they go together, so the pages come together rather quickly.  If I had to search thru all my random papers right now, I'd probably be getting nothing done at all.  However, when I get some time back, anything goes....

Well, I hope to see you playing with buttons at Child's Play Challenges and with patterned paper at Club Ck this week!
