{Cute as a Button}

I've been doing a little machine sewing lately on some of my layouts. For this one, I stitched around the 2 on the measuring tape sticker to highlight Gracie's age, and did a zig zag stitch around the button card.
I even did just a little hand sewing, and added these 4 buttons. I love the look! It adds just that little extra touch.  The funny thing is, I can't even remember the last time I actually sewed on something that wasn't paper. {grin} 

As always, thanks for stopping by!
