Le Louvre

Le Louvre, Paris 2008

This is for the challenge over at
January Challenge is to use 17 buttons on one layout


One...... and it is my favorite one


because I top another button to make the the flower center, that makes two.....


three, four......
I just love these buttons, they served like bling to me.... 


five.....
only thing is that I have no better way to glue them except the hot glue, where I sometimes leave this gluey mess.....


six......
on that tag in that little pocket




and here are the rest....... 17 total!!!



Supplies:
Paper - Pixie Dust Paperie January Kit "MY FUNKY VALENTINE"
Stamps and buttons : PTI

HOLY WOW!!! 17 buttons! you are a genius to have incorporated them soooooo gorgeously! (i am button-challenged, myself!) :) i love everything about this...especially the butterfly's "trail" rendered in buttons! :)

(ps: for attaching things like buttons try the MINI size of "glue dots"...they work really well on paper & chipboard etc and are MESS-FREE!!!)

Davi said...
