Mel's October Trend Challenge ~ Buttons!

It's one of the most basic scrapbook supplies, which most of us own, but a lot of the time gets overlooked.
But, thanks to some popular trends in paper crafting, buttons have once again have found their way back into our scrapbook projects.
Today buttons are available in a large variety of sizes, shapes, colors, textures, and materials.
Buttons can be found anywhere, not just at craft or scrapbooking store. Today you will find buttons that are made of chipboard, rubber, metal, and clear plastics. Also popular are theme type buttons, to fit your themed scrapbook pages. You will also find that alot of buttons are now made acid-free, lightweight, durable, and versatile, so that it is so easy to use on your scrapbook layouts and in other paper projects.

Here are a few ways to use buttons:
~Use a button for the center of a flower or flowers.
~Create bullet points for a journaling or list of things.
~Use buttons to create a border.
~Line up buttons to create a frame for a photo.
~Cluster buttons in a group.
~Use buttons to hang tags, titles and other embellishments.
~Buttons can serve as "anchors" for fibers, floss and jute.
~Create a shape, pattern, or focal point with buttons.
~OR Embellish a design on your patterned paper with buttons.

Attaching Buttons:
~Attach buttons using glue dots
~Sew buttons onto your pages
~For the 'sewn' look using buttons, tie thread or string through the buttons holes and then glue the buttons onto your page.

Your challenge is to create a LO, using at least 10 buttons, of any shape, size, and or material.

The possibilities for your buttons are endless. Be creative and you can find so many fun things to do with a button!
So, dig out your buttons, and get creating!

Treasured Hunt!! Finals, Challenge #6

I'm done, theres nothing else to do but wait, and to read everyone's comments about my LO. I had a great time with all the different embellishments that I piled onto this Layout! It may be too much for some of you, but it's supposed to be a FUN layout, so I took it to the limit! :)

The theme of the challenge was to create a LO with the title having to be a title of a board game or game show. After searching the web I found a list of old game shows, it brought back some memories! I choose "Shop 'Til You Drop", a Tv game show. My twist on this title, is that I created a roulet type design, with my favorite stores, and journaled "Where should I shop today?" with a pic of me holding my credit card.

Well, time to get Sienna from school!
Wish me luck, on my contest! I need it, Julie and Jess are awesome and creative talents to go against! Luckily we all get prizes...but I want 1st!!! :)
Have an awesome day!

I'm on a Treasure Hunt!

The Treasure Hunt is a contest at Treasured Scrapbooking - their biggest contest of the year! This is a six week contest. The Design Team votes on the LOs and picks those who move on to each round. It started off with the top 25 entries, and will move on to compete in the contest, thru to round 6. Each week there is a specific challenge with different requirements and subject matters.

SO far, I have made it throught to ROUND #6!!! I am so excited, there are prizes for the top 3, and the 1st place winner gets a ton of scrappy goodies!!

Keep your fingers crossed for me, judging is tomorrow, to see who moves on to the last round!
