Cute as a Button at MAWTT

 Good morning.  Well it's Thursday so not only is it nearly the end of another week (this year is disappearing fast - don't you think?) but it also means it's time for another new challenge at 

and this week the very lovely and uber talented Laurie 

has picked the theme


Our sponsor this week is 
and 1 lucky winner will win 
and you'll be spoilt for choice as they have soooooo many scrummy images to choose from :o)

The DT were very lucky to get some images to play with and here's what I decided to do.
I had bought some plain white shadow box frames from Ikea and I decided to 'decorate' one for my Great Nephew's 1st birthday next month using some fab buttons I won in a blog hop candy last year.  

The super cute image is Lenny Bee - available here
Simply coloured with PM's and Flexmarkers and mat and layered onto co-ordinating cardstock and two tiny buttons added to his antenna.

Alphas - Papermania cardstock stickers

Sorry about the poor photos - the glass made it so reflective it was difficult to get a picture that didn't show my ugly mug too :o)

Please pop over to the main challenge blog to see my teamies inspirational work - you won't be disappointed :o)
Hope you can find some time to join us this week - can't wait to see what you come up with.

Challenges I would like to enter:
Anything Goes - Boyz to Men 
Creative Craft Challenges - Boys will be Boys
Papertake Weekly - Anything Goes

Thanks for popping by and any lovely comments you may leave.
Have a fabulous day.

Wow Debs, this is gorgeous, your title made me smile,it reminded of one of my first scrap pages. I had some paper with the words cute as a button and I was just experiment with my distressing style. I was happily wripping and scruffing. stuck it all down with a beautiful pic of Mac, stood back to admire my efforts, when I notice I'd wripped the "on" off the paper ~ leaving it to read "cute as a butt" lol ~ sorry for the long comment just had to share hehe!
BIG HUGZ Fleur xXx
