B is for Buttons

For the month of October we are scraplifting this fun layout by Laura Vegas.

Hi there! I'm Laura Vegas, from Northern California, where I live with my husband Joe, and my two gorgeous daughters, Alyssa (16) and Sarah (14). I have been scrapbooking for over 18 years now. I started shortly before my first daughter was born, and have not slowed down since. I scrapbook mostly about my girls and our family, but like to mix it up now and then by scrapping photos and stories about my daycare kids and family friends as well. I have been fortunate enough to design for Lil' Davis, Making Memories, Jillibean Soup, and Pebbles, and was proudly a member of the 2010, 2011 and 2012 Creating Keepsakes Dream Team. I am currently serving as the Design Team Coordinator, as well as designing, for Bella Blvd, designing for Kerri Bradford Studio, and am a member of the 2013 Scrapbook & Cards Today design team. I have been published in Scrapbook & Cards Today, Creating Keepsakes, Scrapbooks Etc, Scrapbook Trends, Cards, Create, Paper Trends, Papercrafts, and PaperKuts magazines.
