Stamp A Memory June Challenge: a special moment


This month the challenge at Stamp A Memory is to use buttons as the main embellishment.  Now, I'm an embellishment hoarder, as I'm sure many of you are, so this challenge was perfect as a push for me to start digging into that stash of buttons hiding in my drawer.

I took the photo on Rob's mobile phone when we were away visiting family a couple of weeks ago.  I just happened to 'catch' Ada and her cousin Zoe lying on Zoe's bed reading a book together.  Both girls love reading, so I used a stamp I purchased at Convention as a little subtitle.  I only used part of the image, but the part I used reads: Share what you love.  I thought it was the perfect little touch for the layout.  I used the flap section of a Scallop Envelope to stamp it on.

The button card stamp from the Sew Suite set was the perfect compliment to the challenge.  I used one a a button card and the other 2 as journalling spots.

I hope you're inspired to enter the June Challenge.  Why don't you pop on over to the Stamp A Memory blog to see what the other girls have come up with?  I'm sure it will be a feast for your eyes!
