Cute as a Button Challenge Combo!

This month’s Dirty Girl Challenge is to make a project with Buttons.


Focus – Buttons
Required Elements – Buttons…lol
Restricted Elements – No Black ink, paper or embellishments (I used Navy Blue)


This project is also for this week’s JustRite Challenge (JustRite Friday Challenge JRC_018). The challenge is Kid Time (make a project for or about kids).


I made a mini (6″ X 6″) scrap page of my Grandson Konnor using the Stitched With Love set from JustRite. Konnor’s grown a bit since this picture. He’s getting ready to start kindergarten in August. They grow up too darn quick.




Here’s a closer look at the phrase:
