Product shuffle : buttons

Good morning! 
It's a rainy Thursday here, perfect weather for scrapbooking right?  As I though about what I could use for this week's product shuffle, I dug through my scrapbooking supplies and found a box full of buttons.  Buttons were one of the first embellishments I used on a scrapbook page, over 10 years ago. They come in all kinds of shapes, and are made with all sorts of materials- plastic, resin, even chipboard!  Check out these chipboard buttons from My Mind's eye Ashbury heights collection.

 So I used the banners and and one of the button on my layout, but I wanted to incorporate other buttons.  Using my box of buttons I scooped out the pink ones (mostly dollar store and CTMH) and lines them up on my background paper.  I then used 3d foam to stick my photo and matt over the buttons to create a scallop border. 
 I then used my smaller buttons to create a border on the other side of my layout
Along with the paper, stickers and chipboard buttons from Ashbury heights by My Mind's eye, I used a Basic Grey metal embellishment, Prima and Kaisercraft flowers, American Crafts alpha stickers, Webster's Pages ribbon and CTMH twine.
I hope you like it and that you dig out your buttons too.  How do you use your buttons on your layouts or cards?
