Just Us Girls # 123 Technique - Buttons - Let It Snow!

I feel like the Mad Hatter today!  I'm Late I'm Late!  Well almost... I will be getting this one posted just in time if you know what I mean.  Today I'm playing along with Just Us Girls Challenge.  This week we are challenged to create with buttons.  I adore buttons.  I started with a collection of just a small box when my kids were little.  I used to love their toddler clothing with buttons of airplanes and kitty cat faces.  When their clothes were too worn or stained I would clip the fancy buttons from them and put them in a box.  The buttons were a way to hold on to some precious part of their childhood.  Today I'm still collecting buttons.  I went from a small jewelry box to a giant shoe box full of buttons.    When I saw the button challenge I knew I would play along.  If you'd like to play along you can get all the details here:

I cut out lots of snowflakes with foil paper and embellished them with layers of buttons and gems. for lots of snowy sparkle.

Thanks for having a look - Have a great day!!
