My Favorite Whimsies

Howdy Scrappers! It's Aphra here with two layouts using some of my favorite Whimsies: textured buttons and stick pins. Eeek! Cute!!!

Happy at Home

I love Stephani's Itty Bitty Textured Buttons. They are the perfect size for finising off a flower. And don't they look great with some Baker's Twine tied through them?

For this larger flower, I used a bright yellow argyle print button from the Textured Soft Boyish Buttons set. And that seemed like the perfect home for an Itty Bitty Bird Pin. He's so sweet! And my friend and fellow DT member taught me an easy little trick to get my birdie pin to stay put -- apply a tiny glue dot to his back and then stick him down. Thanks girlee!

Fresh Air

The Dark Brown Owl and Leaf Pin Set and Whimsy Acorns were the perfect embellishments for my fall layout. The little brown acorn blended in to the background all by itself, so I anchored it with a rust colored argyle button from the Textured Soft Boyish Buttons.

Now that I've decreased my Whimsy stash by eight, I'm off to do a little shopping. I've been having my eye on a couple of things, namely the little green and turquoise bird and the pair of pears. Oh, and the Itty Bitty Cheeseburger, Cookies, and Bats. Ok, maybe not a little shopping. See you next month to show off what I've bought. Hee hee!
