Lmcb hop!

Hello and thanks for stopping by! We're hopping with celebration and excitement this week :) Yep, we're having a blog hop in celebration of our 200th post Lasting Memories! Our challenge? BUTTONS! We are looking for buttons, buttons everywhere on those layouts this week! Along the way, you'll see that some of us are offering a little candy on our blogs but you have to visit us to see who! We've also gotten a little creative with our buttons so we hope you'll be inspired! You should have arrived here from Jane's blog and if this is your first stop, please be sure to hop back to Lasting Memories to start the hop so you don't miss a thing! Each of us has a letter for you to collect that will spell out a scrapbook themed word, so don't forget to jot down my letter which you'll see below. Once you've completed the hop, leave your answer in the comment section back at Lasting Memories. Comments will be moderated so there's no peeking! Then you have to enter your LO and guess what?! Our grand prize winner will receive a $25 gift certificate from A2Z Scrapbooking Store!! Awesome right?? Oh!! And one MORE thing! I'm also offering up some candy all I ask is to follow me and I will use random org to pick the winner...

Now time to reveal my complete layout..

the picutres are of my baby girl at Disney
I made the buttons using my cricut and close to my heart stamps

You don't need a cricut to create buttons... you can cut out circles and stamp them with anything... add some holes with a punch and you are good to go

Your next stop is Karen W blog!! And don't forget to jot down my letter which is R

Have fun and happy hopping!
