Tuesday Taggers Guest DT spot

Woooooooooooooooo....... today I'm so pleased to be the guest designer for Tuesday Taggers.....first time as a guest designer.........though when I heard the challenge was 'buttons and bows'.....I was a bit thrown as neither are things I use too much.........but Tuesday Taggers is all about stretching yourself.......and trying to get out of your comfort zone.......and as soon as I came across this photo of my daughter.....it all came together. Card is PM,DCWV and Cosmo Cricket.....buttons and ribbons all from stash........2 wooden star buttons covered with Cosmo Cricket card.......title is chipboard letters covered with the other card used on the page.......lots and lots of layering on this.
She definately does look 'cute as a button' doesn't she?Though what a strange expression.... wonder where that came from?
After my original fright at seeing the challenge......I really enjoyed making this.......why not pop over to Tuesday Taggers.....look at the DTs gorgeous work......and have a go yourself.
The challenge over at the Allsorts Challenge blog is for no stamping,so I think this definately qualifies there ........and Charisma Cardz want to see scrapbook creations.

Oh Jacky...This is so lovely! Nice to re-visit photos of the children when babies...I wish I had the time to sit down and do my girls photos like this one!
Something else to add to the list...I have been trying to get my self sorted to do my 40th birthday party into an Album! Just must find the time to do it and no excuses...Congrats on getting this guest DT spot... Love the way you have used the ribbons and bows like that. It's a nice sentiment and looks great in the chipboard!

This is so so sweet Jacky, the colours are great and your layout is great. I haven't done much on the scrapbooking side lately the cards have taken over.
Happy crafting
