S.W.A.T: Sketch with a twist-buttons

Just finished the most exciting Broncos game and am so excited to be returning to the Super Bowl! My oldest has been the biggest fan since he could speak and he is absolutely other word to describe it. The last 2 times we were playing in the big game he was about 6 week and just over a year so he is ready to see one he can remember :)

This week there is a new sketch challenge on the S.W.A.T. blog. This is the second drill of the month and it is a sketch with the twist of using buttons. I had these fun pictures of my husband's grandpa who we love dearly. He is so funny and gives us much to laugh at when he is around. He is the only living grandparent for my husband and I and it is special for us to see the boys interact and enjoy relationship with him. I used up lots of stash for this layout. The black and white paper from Doodlebug has been in my possession for an extremely long time. I thought it paired well with the black, red and white buttons I have had for just as long. Add some washi, some sequins and a few other fun necessities and I like how it came together.

Here is the sketch I used and the one you will use if you choose to join us. There is a fabulous grouping of embellishments up for grabs and you would have great odds of winning! Come take a stab at it and join some fabulous ladies for some fun. Don't forget to use a button or many on your layout.

Have a super week.
