Let's Get Shabby #50

Buttons - that was the challenge; to make buttons the hero on your layout.
I have been carrying around two incomplete layouts for five years, they were layered, stuck down and stitched but I just could not seem to finish them; every time I took them out I would go through my stash, be unhappy with anything considered and put them away again. I think the size of the photo, 5x7 added to the difficulty but they have such cute faces and I wanted the photo to stand out! This has been going on for five years!
A couple of days ago my niece Bel sent me the Let's Get Shabby challenge to use buttons and I decided it was time to complete the layouts. I tried everything but my style has changed somewhat over the years and it wasn't working for me; to add to my challenge, it is late at night and I had to use only what I had here and had to complete a double layout. I had to do it; I pulled them apart and put them together again and although I am not completely happy with the result - they are finished and there are just few buttons!
My two eldest grandsons who are now seven and half and six; cute Little Rascals and 100% Boys!
Thank you for looking and any comments you may leave, best wishes.
