Buttons, buttons, who's got the buttons? ;-)

The challenge this week at Practical Scrappers is to use buttons! I love using buttons on my layouts and cards and if I ever see a jar of them at the thrift store, I buy them right up! There are so many things that you can do with them....here are some of my favorite layouts that I have used buttons on:

Use them to frame part of your photo

Embellish patterned paper-
Each of the circles in the strip of patterned paper have a white button in the center of them. And then I made a cluster of three buttons with ribbon by the heart embellishment.

Line them across the whole length of your layout

Create the center of a flower
(I absolutely LOVE the bottom photo of my then 11 year old holding her new baby sister!)

Use them as the centers for flowers
Buttons are so much fun to add to any layout! I hope you got some ideas for using buttons on your layouts!
