I took all of the flowers out of their jars/bottles (Remember those cute bottles Prima first came out with? Cute but they took up SO MUCH room!) and sorted everything by color. All of the tiny ones went into a plastic bowl like container and the larger ones went into small ziplocks which I sorted into index card file boxes. I have one of each for each color and it takes up much less space than all of those assorted bottles and jars.
Most of my buttons were already sorted by color in a hardware type drawer unit (Thank You Pitts Hardware! LOL!) but I still had an entire box of random bags, packs, jars, etc that needed a home.
These were the only Prima bottles that didn't get tossed. They were just too cute to get rid of so I repurposed them for some special buttons.

Another vacation layout from the Railroad Museum. Once again I used the packaging for my white title/journaling block. I cut the letters on my die-cut machine from the red patterned paper. I thought the zipper border looked really railroad track-ish (It's a word! LOL!) so it was perfect for this page. I turned the + sign a bit and made it look like a Railroad Crossing Symbol.
The Fleur De Lis was a perfect accent for my layout about the Superbowl game played by the New Orleans Saints. And of course this event had to be documented! It was the first time in 14 years of marriage that my husband watched a football game! LOL! He said that he wanted to see what all the fuss was about! LOL!
