BUTTONS Practical Scrappers Challenge

This weeks challenge at Practical Scrapper was BUTTONS! I was super duper excited, and did two, the button trees on "Little Soldier" and the one that is posted here. I used SWEETHEARTS to cut the base and details on the gumball machine. I filled the gumball machine with threaded buttons for the "gumballs" and used more buttons with thread for the scallop frame around the picture of my daughter. I love this layout. This is the picture right after her very first haircut! She was a hot mess during it, Daddy had to end up holding her but afterwards even with the crooked bangs she was a smiling cutie! Amazing how five minutes can change her world huh? Most of the embellishments minus stamp and gumball machine are from the Sweet Life found on clearance at Joann's a few weeks back. I did a lot of stamping with this one, the frog and the circles that say "Always". Bling, thickers, ribbon, doodling and buttons galore. I promise it is much brighter in person but the sun was not out when I photographed it. What do you think?
