Reading together

I've been inspired to think about scrapbooking materials in a different way by Jenni Bowlin over at Big Picture Classes with her "Re-purpose, Re-think-Re-invent" class. It's got me looking in the vintage and collectable sections on Ebay to see what I could find. I found a great book which is an almanac from the 1890s which part of me found very hard to tear pages out of, but the crafter in me won and there's a page used on here.

We were sent a package of materials to use on challenges which included these little labels.

I also found a fantastic bag of buckles which included all sorts of metal and plastic buckles, including this button shaped buckle, which in turn inspired me to use red buttons on the layout to match.

Shimelle set a challenge to make a page using a patterned paper background, so in my continuing effort of doing two things at once, I think this has enough pattern on it!
