Do-it -yourself flair buttons & scrapping everyday miracles

First I started with these Prima Epoxy dots
They can be placed on a layout to highlight something.
Never being one to waste anything, I used pictures from an old diary of gardens/flowers.


Then I carefully cut around the edges, leaving floral circles.

And a close up
 
Now I've used 2 large and 3 small on this layout for Scrapping Everyday Miracles where the sketch was this
 
 
 
 
The theme was friends forever and I certainly made a few at Camp Mojo.
How clever was it that these ladies wore the exact colours to match the paper?

Love the buttons and the randomness of the pictures underneath. I've used them, but always try to get a complete flower or item in - yours are much better!

I have a package of lenses from Close to My Heart, probably 5 or 6 years old and I never knew how to use them. Thank your for the inspiration!
