Award Time

I was watching my nine year old grandson yesterday and he felt I should make a layout of him. He said since the citizenship award was blue I needed blue paper and "how sweet would it be if you sewed in the buttons." So I used twine in his buttons (at the end of first grade the teacher gave the students items from the classroom and he received a huge jar of mixed buttons that came to my house so now every button is considered to have once been his.) I followed the June 8th sketch from Boys Rule. With only grandsons it has to be one of my favorite sites.


  1. Yep, the buttons look fantastic!! Tell him I said that was a great idea ;0) I love the papers you chose with that gorgeous blue - it makes everything just pop!!

  2. you must be proud of him and so nice to have things that mean something to him on the LO
