Kansas Son Flowers Bloom In Heaven

HI!!! Hope you are all well! This weeks challenge at SOUS is to use buttons...so buttons I used!
For this layout I chose a picture of my dad and uncle as wee lads....1932...wow~My dad is the wee one on the right....just a boy of 2yrs. I chose the title to represent these boys as sons of my dear grandmother...of course all of them are blooming in heaven now.
I used K&Co Tim Coffey stack. The marquee is from Sentimentals and is double layered with a solid card stock. The 'button holes' were created with markers and then I added the buttons that are stitched with embroidery floss. I laced the ribbon around the buttons to 'attach' the marquee that I cut apart.

Kansas is cut from 50 States, Son Flowers is from Lyrical Letters, welded in DS. The tractor and windmill are both from Heritage.
I created the sunflowers by layering 3 of the flower cuts from Graphically speaking @ 1/2 inch increments. I used the sun cut from the same cart cut at 1 inch and 3/4 of an inch and then added buttons to the centers. I used my fingers to curl the petals a bit. The leaves are from Heritage and the wheat stalks from My World. The fence is cut from Paper Doll Dress Up.
1932 is cut from Pooh Font, I love love love the 'wood' look. In the center of these flowers I added some beads held in place with paper glaze.
Hop on over and check out the DT creations.....you will enjoy what you see!
Thanx for stopping by today!!!!!
