There's not much more that's WONDERFUL to behold,
than the hope and possibility of a new graduate's fresh face....!

{No matter HOW fresh!}

Even a PINT-SIZED graduate can have stars in their eyes!
Mine was so cute, I couldn't sandwich this memory into an
ordinary scrapbook - so I embellished some of my favorite
captured moments with BUTTONS!!! But not just ANY buttons:

I festooned THIS memory with buttons from my
MOST treasured source for buttons, ribbon and charms...

For MORE glorious details on EXACTLY how I made this
scrumptious piece of memory keeping, and access to the greatest
button shopping source in all of blogland, I would
LOVE it for you to check out my complete post at the super
craftilicious spot for button-craft, Buttons Galore & More!

Lot's more details to behold OVER THERE! So I hope you'll check it out
and LET THEM KNOW you've visited! They need to know
I'm leading your on your OWN journey towards the STARS!

{Hee Hee!}

Thanks, so much! Hope your day is fresh-faced and full of possibility as well!
