Scrap'N'Art Journey Sketch Challenge

Thought I should upload my latest entry in Angie's sketch challenge for April. Its a great sketch and you should give it a go. Angie offers great prizes too.

My layout is called 'Ready, Willing & Able' and is about my daughter's first day at school this year. She went into Year 3 and couldnt wait to get to school. I love that she loves school.

On the layout there is a chipboard flourish down the bottom with the buttons. This I wrapped with embroidery thread. I didnt know how it would work out and the first one I did failed as the shape was too curvy. But I love how this one turned out. I just added double sided tape to the back and wrapped.
The big white button was actually from one of my daughters clothes. It was a 'Veronicas' top - you can see the Vs all over it. (Aussies will know the band). The button was annoying for her and ended up coming off. I have had it in my stash for awhile but finally got to use it on this layout.
Go and check out Angie's site at scrap'n'art journey. She is a very talented scrapper and a great blogger.

Hope you like.
