I used the yummy Crate Paper's Emma's Shoppe papers for this lo. There were some great tutorials I saw this week and I used a couple of the techniques I saw. The first, is the heart flower that I saw on October Afternoon's blog here. And the second was a tutorial on making your own fabric covered buttons at Counterfit Kit Challenge. This was a great revelation for me, because I love the big, fabric covered brads but can't always find colors or patterns that I'm looking for. This is a great way to customize and really easy. Of course I had to make a trip to Hobby Lobby yesterday and purchase some of the button kits. The one I made for this lo, is the yellow button in the center of the heart flower. There are several different tutorials, so head over and check them out here.
