The Way to a Man's Heart

The challenge this week at Isabella's Sketchbook is an easy one, buttons and bows.  You can add one of each or a bunch of each but remember that your project must have an Isabella image.  If you don't have one or would like a new one, drop in to her store and get something so you can participate in this challenge.  Make sure you check all the fabulous work done by the rest of the design team.  You will be truly inspired.

I decided I would use one of each, especially after I found this fabulous checked button at my local fabric store.  It was a bit expensive but I used my member's card and got a bit of a discount because I just could not resist it.

If this little cutie had blond hair, it would be my granddaughter.  She loves to help bake and cook and is often grabbing her stool so she can be part of the action.  My daughter always liked to help me so it doesn't surprise me to see my granddaughter following in her footsteps.

I am going to enter this card in the following challenges:
