Happy Monday everyone! We hope that you had a great weekend and are ready for a fun filled week of lots of inspiring projects. This week we have a special guest with us, Sherry Steveson!

Sherry Steveson has been
passionate about scrapbooking for over ten years. Finding a hobby that merged
her love for photography with her gift of writing, all wrapped up in a creative
outlet was the catalyst for a life long devotion. Her work has been published in
many of the major scrapbook magazines and idea books and always brings a thrill

Here's my finished project using the buttons I made:
