Happy Mother's Day



Yay...another PTI blog hop! This month's challenge was to use buttons--I used some gorgeous, new Hawaiian Shores buttons with Beautiful Blooms II!




Isn't this a fresh color combo! I tried to get a close up of the beautiful pattern on the largest button--this was the best I could get. (click on picture for an enlargement)



Thanks for looking!
Melissa
