Layout share: It's the story that counts


Here's another layout I finished up over the weekend. These pictures are not great but they help tell a really cute story, so of course I had to use them!

In addition to some older Making Memories patterned paper, I used some very old square pink buttons on this layout. I do not remember who made them...does anyone? SEI, maybe? (BTW, I think those of you who suggested Doodlebug as the manufacturer of the flower buttons on a recent post were correct!)

It's kind of hard to read the journaling (even if you click on the layout to bigify it), so here it is:

Daughter and her second cousin, XXX, were hanging out in our bedroom one day and got the idea for an invention. Wouldn’t it be nice, they thought, to be able to turn on the ceiling fan if you were lying in bed? So they taped a short piece of drinking straw to the ceiling then ran a string from the light switch, up the wall, and across the ceiling, threading it through the straw. A long end hung down next to the pillow. And sure enough, this invention worked! We enjoyed the convenience and left it in place for months!

Very ingenious invention! and a great page documenting it. I *think* the buttons were Doodlebug, but don't quote me.

What a gorgeous layout & a cool invention! I'm not sure who makes those buttons....I think I have some in my stash, too.

Very inventive. Glad that you got a picture of this. Not sure who makes the pink buttons, but I have some of the paper in my stash. :)
