I have the pleasure of hosting challenge 160 at Let's Scrap. This challenge combines an interesting mix of required elements; buttons, flowers, a mixture of black and white, sepia and colored photos and hand written journaling. If you haven't played along I encourage you to do so, the challenge is open until 11:59pm central time on May 2nd.
This layout is the 2nd page in my nature and old buildings album. The focus of the page is a beautiful old barn that was on my mom and step dad's farm. I took the photos the summer of 2009 while I was there visiting the weekend of my Great Grand Mother's funeral. The flower's were in their yard.
The bunting across the top I made by first creating a pattern paper by stamping purple flowers on pink card stock. I then cut out triangles and inked around the edges. Since my challenge required buttons I thought it would be cute to put them there.
