Buttons on the Seashore


Hi, I'm back for another quick post. ;) This week's CA&F Monday Mania is with Sheng. She wants us to use funky buttons on our creations. Please check out the DT's and Sheng's samples on the CA&F link above and hope you get to play along.
I was searching for some funky buttons, and found some that had a pearly-offwhite sheen to them. An idea came to mind. I thought they could look like shells on the seashore. I knew the perfect Anya I wanted to use, Sunshine Anya, and just a simple beach background would do. Hope you get a chance to play along.
I was also inspired by the gals over at Tamiko's. Not knowingly I used the same colors they have for their inspirations: turqoise, orange and yellow. :)
I'm off to Torrance for a bbq. Maybe I'll have some craft stuff to post when I get back. Mahalo for stopping by, have a great Saturday!!
