As part of my year of INSPIRATION, each month I am challenging myself to scrap my Top Five (photos or stories or events) from the previous month. I actually created the first of my February layouts before the month ended rather than put these pieces of memorabilia into my to-scrap file.
One of the FUN activities at Scrapbook Expo is collecting buttons to wear or pin on a scrapbooking tote. For example, by taking a class at the Expo, you receive a button that reads "I Learned." For attending one of the crops, you receive one that reads "I Cropped." If you collect at least four buttons, you can then get the special medallion that reads "I Conquered Scrapbook Expo."
Over the course of the two days I was at the Expo, I collected five buttons and the medallion, along with a nice lanyard.
Some of you may recognize the "Be Inspired" button as I added it to the front of my INSPIRATION notebook. I hung the lanyard in my craft room, then added the remaining buttons and medallion to a layout.
I cut out the section about collecting the buttons from the show guide and used it as the journaling on my page along with a photo of me with all those buttons pinned on my jacket.
I really like how the final layout looks and am excited to have these FUN pieces of memorabilia preserved in our 2015 scrapbook!
Would you have used those buttons on a layout? Or displayed them in another way?
