Cute As A Button-SOUS

 TGIF everyone..
Stuck on U Sketches is having its weekly reveal again today and this is my take on this weeks challenge..Our Challenge was to use Buttons on a layout and I made my own using my cricut.. 
*Is there anything that machine can't do?..LOL

Here are some close ups of the layout:

 My youngest son Adam when he was about 4 months old.. He was a big boy!!

 Close up of the title.. wasn't exactly sure what colors to use, but I think the brown came out pretty cute..
I had actually placed the A´s upside down by accident and my son came in and told me to fix em..LOL
See, they do care..  :O)

 I wanted a patched look to the dye cuts and so cut little squares and inked the edges, added some small dots on the four corners with a fine tip marker and then added some fake stitching.

 I used my cuttlebug and the Tiny Mosaic folder to emboss the giraffe, I think it came out great.. I'm so loving my new cuttlebug..  :O)  Thnx again Sabrina..<3

Supplies Used:

Cricut cartridges:
George and Basic Shapes: circles for buttons, photo corners and big background circle
Pooh Font: Title
New arrival: Giraffe, plane, ducky, truck, sail boat and outfit.

Cuttlebug for embossing
Tiny Mosaic folder

Papers: Heidi Grace Designs- Baby boy
cardstock: brown, dark brown, yellow, white, blue and light blue

twine: white and blue
Zig fine tip black marker for doodling and stitching
white gel pen for doodling and stitching
