B is for Button Baby

Letter B this weeks Alpha challenge
over at
The Craft Barn
I chose the word
Button (& Baby)
(No surprise there eh!!!!)
I do LOVE my buttons!!

I've filled one of my cubbies with....
My (distressed with inks) French dictionary text
(with my word 'button' and definition highlighted)
Bottle of buttons
...more vintage buttons!
vintage baby pic and more fench dictionary definition 'baby' in an idealogy fragment
tape measure
and a B type key embellie.
It's week 13, So that means we are now half way through the Alpha Dictionary challenge!
So I thought I would show you all a sneaky peek of what my tray is looking like at this half-way stage....

Off to take a peek now to see what everyone else is doing with the  letter 'B'.
Thanks for peeking!
