I did this layout for a recipe challenge at Club CK.  Ashley asked us to include the colour yellow - check, chipboard - check, ribbon or floss - check, at least three buttons - check, letter stickers - check and glitter or Stickles - check!

The toughest part of this layout was trying to use letter stickers.  I never use them anymore but still have some in my stash.  I had no coordinating colours so I decided to put Stickles on the stickers to get them to match.  It worked out OK, but I'm still not a fan of letter stickers!  lol  I really couldn't think of a title for this layout - I just thought the expressions on A's face were so cute.  So, I journalled about that (on this super cute Jillibean Soup journalling spot) and then came up with a short, though boring, title based on that.  I needed to add something to the title area, so I put the stickers on a strip of ribbon, added buttons with yellow floss to either side and then a semi-circle of gems.  They aren't turquoise but they go with the background paper and I'm trying to get past my "everything has to match perfectly" hangup.

I used this little circle from the same Jillibean Soup pack and then mounted a small chipboard flower and then button on it.  I used foam to mount them all to give it dimension.

I love the journalling spot but it looked too plain by itself.  So, I decided to stitch a "border" around the scalloped circle.
