Families are forever

Good morning all

Well today is my last time posting as a design team member for Practical Scrappers:-(

It is bitter sweet for me I loved doing it and being a part of an amazing team , but on the other hand I don't have to do projects for the challenge and have them ready for a certain day.

I can make what ever I want when I want. I just wanted to prove to my self that I was good enough for a design team and I did that for 2 terms....I know I will miss it.....

Was a wonderful experience for me!

Now on to my layout we where to use buttons and that was an easy one for me because I use a lot of them. I did this layout of my Family minus 1 Brother that doesn't seem to think he is a part of our Family. My Mom in front from left to right Me , Brother Butch, Sister Bonnie and Brother Dave missing is my Brother John ....That we love and miss!

I did this layout with thoughts of Mothers day coming up you will see what I mean in a minute.

Families are forever Layout using

K&Company paper EK Success corner punch for pic mat

Cricut Just because cart for tree cut at 16 ins inked, doodled and pop dotted and added buttons.

Title cut at 2 ins and doodled.

wagon cut at 3ins doodled and pop dotted.

apples cut at 1in pop dotted and added the date.

Lace and ruler ribbon, tore some green paper and added as grass inked the edges for depth.
And last the big button that represents my Mom and the fiber that represents my Family the button is tied to the fiber with string that represents LOVE and it holds everything together because that's what a Mother does.....Today is my Mom's 83rd Birthday and this layout is very special to me....

Thanks so much for stopping by and have a great day

Wanda :-D



My Friend Robyn does this thing on her blog that I love...

At the end of every post she adds a couple of blessings she is thankful for.

I think this is such an awesome thing so today I am gonna start to do that...

Blessings I am thankful for

    Might have to look into getting this cart.. :O)

  17. I'm definitely going to have to scraplift the tree with the buttons. Love it! You are such an inspiration.

  18. Fabulous layout Wanda! Love the buttons on the trees! I'm sure the DT will miss you but it is tough when you have a deadline...I guess thats why I don't seek them out or do the challenges.
