A TRUE FRIEND ...
{DT Project Tammy's Scrapin Corner: Challenge #47}

This week our theme for Challenge #47 at Tammy's Scrapin Corner  is BUTTONS. I used the  Love Birds image from SK Digis.  You can purchase it here.   The sentiment is a freebie from (A Piece of Heart (Sharon).

The image has been printed on green cardstock and paper pieced.  The corners are folded squares and the buttons are from stash. The design papers are mostly BasicGrey.  The circle shapes on which the image is mounted was created with the {Doing Life} Circles template and you can find it here.  I have a new little distressing tool and have used it for the first time around the edges of some of the design papers.

Hope you will play along this week - so come on link your Buttons creations to Tammy Scrapin Corner's Challenge No.47. Can't wait to see your creations.


 

Off to link this creation to the following challenges:
Once again a huge thanks to all my old and new Followers for your wonderful uplifting comments.  It really means a lot.
