Cute as a button

Goodmorning lovely Maja Design fans,

I sure hope everything goes well with you all, Aren’t you loving the “Miles Apart” collection as much as I do? It’s so shabby chic right up my ally. I have been fussy cutting my brains out lol. For this layout I used another precious picture of Abbey I just can’t stop creating with pictures of her. This was a really easy and quick layout to make because I already did the fussy cutting part during my series I watch on tv. I wanted the picture to stand out in this layout that’s why I kept it clean…..

It was really fun to create this layout, I took half a sheet of the little things and placed a part of distance bsand placed it behind the first one to later on put it on the keeping busy sheet after I distressed it like a mad woman lol….those buttons you see on my layout are actually chipboard pieces that I altered is Maja Design paper.

On the background of my layout I added a stencil with golden crackle paste but before that I first stamped on it with Gabi’s stoic stamp by 49 and Market. After that I sprayed some of my favorite Lindy’s spray to soften up my layout. To make the phrases on my layout stand out a little more I used the black ones by The Dusty Attic and the phrase “The Ultimate Photo” I painted black.

After that I added some flowers by 49 and Market, wishing bubbles and some metal pieces with words on it to finish of my layout….and I stopped but it was hard because I wanted to add more lol.

Maja Design papers used: The little things, Keeping busy, Keeping busy-bs and Distance-bs
