Layouts in the Mist

The fabulous Yvonne from Do More With Less is holding a challenge contest. Basically you create something inspired by the layout in this post and there you go! Here's what I did:
This is one of Toot's one year old portraits. I made a layout using plastic canvas as the backing instead of cardstock (my thought being to hang this on the wall so I left the little display hangy thing on the canvas). I used some old sheet music for behind the picture and button. (P.S.-this sheet music is some I got from the 2-3 lb stack of sheet music I found at a thrift store for $1! *drool*)
The patterned paper is Basic Grey (go me for remembering), Lemonade line I think and I wired on some buttons. I misted with the one lonely mist I have. This is only the second time I've used this mist, the first time being on my Jimi Hendrix ATCs and then after that I lost it and have been "mist-less" since July 2009. lol I recently found it again in a box of scraps (thank goodness I never throw anything away, in your face cleanliness!) and have been searching for things to spray the crap out of ever since...

Anyhoo, there's still time to play along with Yvonne's challenge! She's taking entries until tomorrow so get to gluing! :P Have fun and I'll see you after The Bachelor! :D

Maggi, this is really pretty. The picture of Toot is perfect, and I love the bit of sheet music and (most especially) the butterfly. :)
Hope you and your family had a lovely Valentine's Day!
