January Challenge

Here is the January Challenge over at Scrapbookers Anonymous. This month you must use at least 17 buttons on your layout!  Here is my contribution as a member of the Design Team.
I used 19 buttons on my page, but who's counting? (beside me) Most of my buttons were used as layering for my title.
The layout is a summary of the everyday things we did this past fall. I'd like to make a page like this for each of the 4 seasons.
I used my Sew Easy tool to create this border. I didn't worry about precise measurements, tossed in a few buttons and came up with this result.
I hope you'll consider giving this challenge a try. You have until the end of the month and there is a great prize! You can see what the rest of the design team came up with here.

  9. I saw this on the Scrapbookers Anonymous post last night and I love it. I really like the way you used the buttons under the title to give it dimension and emphasis. I have a ton of buttons in my stash, so will probably give this a go!
