Bet when you read the title of today's post you probably thought it was about football didn't ya! Instead it is about my daugther and when her hair grew back in after losing it as a baby. I couldn't believe how it grew just straight up like it did. When she would be outside and the wind would blow it looked like waves of grain swaying around...that ain't no lie!
The layout I used was from the challenge that Anne-Therese of Paper Patch Crafts had posted on her Facebook page last night. She wanted us to use the layout she got from Pagemaps and then the requirements were to use at least 4 buttons and having sewing, either machine or hand, on the layout.
Cricut Kate's ABC's cart
K & Co. Chocolate Neapolitan
Stampin Up Corduroy buttons
Stampin Up markers
Stampin Up Spiral punch
Small brown buttons
1" circle punch
3/8" Grosgrain ribbon
Colorbox Chalk Ink
Janome Sew Mini
Signo UM - 153 gel pen
The tag with the date was in the K & Co. paper stack, that sure made it easy to add the date!
I added buttons on the center of the white flowers. I know they cover them up but I still like how it turned out.
