Scraptathlon Week # 9

Week # 9 at Scraptathlon - just one more week to go and guess what?  Amanda is tied for third place!  Way to go A!!!

Here were our instructions from our hostess Kia:
It's use your STASH week here at Scraptathlon. Our victim this time around is BUTTONS! I have drawers full of buttons, I don't know why, but, I need to get past using one or two in a LO and USE some of the zillions that I have. So, for this week, your challenge is to use heaps of bountiful, bodacious, beee-yoo-ti-ful buttons as possible on your LO.

Here is Susan's take on the challenge:
This was a fun week on Scraptathlon!  And boy did we need it after Kia's Crazy Eights challenge last week!  I love buttons and I used a mixture of old and new on my layout.  I found some old photos of my kids on Cinderella's Carousel at Walt Disney World.  I fussy cut the banner to go across the top of the layout from Fancy Pants Wishful Thinking collection papers.  A little Glimmer Mist behind the photos and I even found a Carousel charm to use.  I used some Prima Pearls and Prima's Donna Downey Canvas Buttons.  The Webster's Bloomers even got some buttons glued in the middle!  Sorry for the poor photo - my scanner is on the fritz!
From Flamingo Scraps:  Fancy Pants Wishful Thinking patterned papers; Prima say it in pearls bling swirl, flowers and Donna Downey canvas buttons; Websters bloomers in Aqua and Tattered Angels Glimmer Mist
Other Supplies:  Carosel charm, Martha Stewart loopy punch, buttons from the stash, cardstock

And here's what Amanda did for the Buttons challenge:
I waited until the last day... I was totally lost in search of inspiration!  And then I remembered the topic challenge from the These are a Few of my Favorite Things blog right now... favorite stores!!  (If you haven't seen this topic challenge blog, check it out -- I'm always inspired!! Hi Julie!!)  Of course, I'm on the Target bandwagon.  I created a few quick Target logo masks using an ad we got in the mail, a heart mask I cut freehand, taped them down with temporary adhesive and misted the background.  I then removed my masks and filled my masked heart with some cut outs from the same Target ad.  I added a title, some glittery foam hearts and BUTTONS!!!   Whole layout came together in 30 minutes. 

From Flamingo Scraps: Cherry Metallic Maya Road Mist, Pink Paislee Artisan Alpha
Other supplies: darice foam hearts, black sharpie pen, miscellaneous red buttons, and a Target ad

Only one week left of our challenge!!  We hope you enjoy your weekend!!
