A quick post

for a quick layout, I love it when things come together.

I had some journaling in my head for a few weeks thanks to the journaler's junction challenge 'Oh Grow Up'. I just didn't know what picture to use or what layout design would be like.

Then I saw the pub ad challenge for this week and my brain started working

To top it off I read Stephanie Howell's blog and she had an amazing layout(I think almost all of her layouts are amazing) featuring these Cute Buttons. Since it would be a while before I could get my hands on them, I rushed home with a plan B. Paint my own buttons! Then I just needed to find a picture and came across this chalkboard photo and thought perfect.
In my excitement to execute my plan, I forgot to turn on the oven so when I was done with the layout an hour later I came to the kitchen to a cold potato. Oh the price we pay for the sake of art.

here's a close up of the buttons, I know you want one...
