It's Tuesday today, right? Well, I'm pretty sure it is which means that it's time for a challenge! This week's challenge comes to you in the form of a button. You know, that clever little invention which helps keep your pants up and your shirt on. Speaking of which, did I ever share with you the not-so-hilarious story of my yellow shirt that utilized velcro instead of buttons and how it once bursted right open when my friend grabbed my shirt from the back? No, of course not! Because that would be completely embarrassing and not something one would want to share on a public blog of all places. And don't ask me what I was doing wearing a shirt that used velcro instead of buttons. It was the 80's is my only excuse! Anyhow, back to the challenge...
This week’s challenge comes straight from the “Make The Most Of It” column from the NEW January/February issue. Your challenge, should you choose to accept it, is to create a layout using your favorite stash of buttons. If you happen to have this issue handy, turn to page 18 to see some layouts I created using buttons in different ways. I think my favorite layout of the bunch is this one where I had way too much fun creating cute little button flowers.
So, grab yourself a handful of buttons and see just how versatile this simple little embellishment can be. Remember to post your layouts in the Simple group gallery by Sunday, December 14, for your chance to win a HUGE bag of buttons handpicked by the Simple staff. Be sure to title the file (not the layout) “Make The Most Of It” so we can find the contest entries. Note: the quote marks are important so remember to title your file with them.
Can't wait to see what you come up with! :)
