Two-Page Tuesday: Using Flair

My assignment from Get It Scrapped!: Use flair buttons on your page in an interesting way. This layout is about our favorite place to eat lunch when we're vacationing at the beach. My page design is based on a sketch by Allison Davis.

Collection Featured: Studio Calico Snippets
I selected the flair based on the bright, happy colors I associate with summer and vacations at the ocean. The placement of these embellishments forms a visual triangle.

I used two flair buttons as centers for stamped, hand-cut shapes.

The third is part of a grouping of smaller shapes in a corner of the page. 
You can check out the rest of the article and Design Team layouts here. I'm accumulating quite a stash of these bright, happy buttons. Are you adding flair to your pages?
