Button LO

evening blogger friends...

Just want to share an LO i made years ago.. I love looking back at the old LO's I've made. Not just to look at the memories the pictures bring back, but also to see the tecnices I used.

I remember making this LO. I had dicovered buttons.. did you guess??? lol... and had gathered up a good bit in pink and red, so i decided to make a LO with them.
When I started, as usual, I had no idea what I wanted, only that I wanted loads of buttons.. I had seen a LO in a magazine where the designer had used a piece of paper with buttons on as a back ground and then added clear buttons on top, so I suppose that's where the inspiration came from..

Anyway, there is not much more I can tell you about what I used and did, but I CAN tell you about the picture. Its my eldest baby, Emma, on the playground at home in Denmark. She is sitting on a tyre swing, swinging back and by chance I got a picture of her through the tyre. I just love the picture and it shows Emmas personality really good. Always up for fun..

Now I best get to my bed, so I wish you all the best and sweet dreams..

Hugs, Marleen xxx
