B-is for buttons, a Laura Vega Scraplift

 Hello folks!  Can you believe it's October already?  No, neither can I. This year is just flying by.  There is a new challenge over on the Scrapology blog.  This month we are scraplifting the talented Laura Vegas with the focus on using buttons. I have to admit that my mojo has been A.W.O.L. of late.... am still waiting for it to make an appearance! 
 I always find it's great to follow a sketch when Mr. Mojo decides to take a break.  For my page I used WRMK papers.  The photo, of my great-nephew, is mounted on funky foam on top of rows of colourful ribbons.  I also die cut the title letters from foam and adorned each letter with a coloured rhinestone. 
The buttons are all hand stitched into place.  I layered up a few blooms with more buttons for the centres and finished off the page with a ribbon and bow across the bottom.
Now the nights are drawing in you'll have more crafting time to join us in our challenge.  I hope you do.  There's a fab prize up for grabs.  If you need any inspiration head on over to the blog where you'll be able to see the wonderful creations by my fellow teamies.
Ciao for now!
