Scrapbook Page

This is the beginning page for the scrapbook I am making my Mother-In-Law.  It is her birthday today and I was able to get the pictures from Easter of all the grandkids in layouts for her gift.  The only problem is that I almost always do double page layouts, so the first page in the scrapbook was blank.  So this is what I came up with to fill it!  The album itself is a beautiful brown with two butterflies in the teal/aqua families on the front, so I thought this matched quite well.  The scalloped mat is from My Scrap Chick, label #7.  All the paper is from DCWV's Industrial Chic Stack.  I really like the way the writing lines add visual interest as stripes on the paper.  It is such a unique stack!

A close up of the elements I included at the bottom of the page.  The numbers were just cut out from one of the pages of paper and pop-dotted for added dimension.

The buttons are just random ones from a package I bought from Hobby Lobby and the one on the left is actually a "button" from one of the pages of paper that I used my round 14 Epiphany Crafts Shape Tool with to make it look like a real button.

I hope you enjoy it and thanks for stopping by!

  4. The buttons look old fashioned and the writing on the paper says "days gone by". But you are specific about 2013 being a year to remember. A really great card.
