My page for the Purple Pumpkin DT

Well, it has taken me all morning to download this page - blogger is not playing nicely this morning for me!! Anyway, I'd like to share this page with you. It is a simple one (by my standards) but I really love the photos and I wanted them to really be the focus of my page. I took them on our summer vacation back in January. We took the girls to visit a vintage railway. It was one of those beautiful summer days when everything feels perfect. The girls were wearing their summer dresses and hats and they reminded me of one of my favourite childhood stories - the Railway Children.
I wanted to make the page look girlie and a little bit 'modern vintage'. I used Kaisercrafts gorgeous ''Tigerlilly' collection as my base, and dressed it up with a little hessian (frayed at the edges), spray ink and ofcourse that absolutely gorgeous Purple Pumpkin button. Now I have had this button in my stash for a while just waiting for that perfect page to use it on - and this was it! I mounted the button on the reverse side of a Purple Pumpkin die-cut circle which gives it a 'lacy' edge and really makes it stand out as a feature on my page. I will try to upload a close up photo - cross your fingers that it works :)

OMGosh it worked!!! and it only took 10 mins to download!
Isn't this just the cutest button ever?
Hope you are all enjoying the stash that you bought at the last sale. My favs were those cloud buttons and the ballerinas, oh and I really loved the black set ....
