Push the Button(s)….

OK, so prompt #8 from Shimelle’s ‘Something From {Almost} Nothing’ was to use up some buttons. Do I have any buttons? Well let me see…buttons1 buttons2

 

 

 

 

 

 

Yep! I’d say I have a few!! I do use buttons quite often on my LO’s, but then again, I’m also tempted to buy quite a few too!! Something about buttons!…they take me back to childhood when I used to be allowed to play with my Mums tin of buttons!

Anyhow, what to do to be able to use lots on a LO? 31March2010 007
Well I chose this photo…taken in August 2002. We visited a Maize Maze in Hertfordshire & spent over an hour getting more & more lost! We were given long bamboo poles with red flags on so that if we needed help, we could wave them & staff would come & lead us out!! We kept going until Alex started to panic & then we called in the cavalry…only to find we were actually only two rows from the exit anyway!!! It was ice creams all round when we finally emerged!!

We still have another 48 hours of Shimelle’s class left…two more prompts to go & she says she has some surprises too!! 

So, this is my last posting for March …we’re now a quarter way through 2010…How scary is that?!!!  Tomorrow is April fools day, so be careful out there…don’t get caught out!!!!

Thanks for dropping by!!

That's one stunning LO Sandi! Loving those fronds of greenery! I ascribe to the ' a girl can never have too many buttons' theory but hardly ever use any. Those spirals look fab.

Have a lovely day :) and yep! I'm definitely less wise. The dentist says it's down to too many apples. An apple a day keeps the doctor away. Five apples a day cause acid erosion and make your teeth drop off ...

I saw this LO on the SFAN forum, and absolutely LOVE it!! I too have some Maize Maze photos, so i would love to scraplift the button swirl ide if that's OK?

I think you may have visited near where I live, there is a maze of maize not far from here in my quarter of deepest Hertfordshire!
love the spirals of buttons, very appropriate for a maze story!
