November Challenge- Buttons!!!

Happy November Scrappers!!!!

First of all I just want to say I am sorry for posting this month's challenge a few days late. I have been having some computer trouble lately. Don't you just hate it when that happens?

So I have been thinking about what to do for the November Challenge and trying to come up with some ideas. While I sitting at my scrap table looking at my stash looking for some inspiration I kept seeing my buttons. So then it hit me....I have been wanting to do some pages with the buttons on it for sometime. So this month let's break out those buttons. I want to see what you can come up with. Do you use your buttons in the center of flowers, as photo corners or to frame your photos? Do you use them in unique ways? So come on.... get them out and let's see what you can come up with. Also I would like to throw a twist to this month challenge. Since it is November and Autumn is here not to mention Thanksgiving being just around the corner let's make some Autumn/ Thanksgiving projects. You can enter a Layout of any size, a mini album, altered project for your Holiday home decor, anything your crafty heart desires.

MemoryWorks has a great selection of buttons for your projects if you would like to order. How about the FANCY PANTS BUTTONS HARVEST . Just hop on over and SHOP OUR PRODUCTS and search for buttons. Be sure to check out all the new yummy Holiday items we have in stock. Don't forget to check out the MW OUTLET while your there for items on clearance. Cause when their gone their GONE!!!

Once you finish your project for the Challenge you can email the copy to me at monicajo4@mchsi.com. On November 30th, I will be posting all entries for judging. As always the winner will be gifted an item from their WISH LIST as well as being featured here at CROP DROP & ROLL. So make sure to email me your MEMORYWORKS wish list as well.

Have a Happy Autumn and let's see all the cool creative inspiration using buttons.

DON'T FORGET!!! October's Challenge was extended until November 7th so you still have a few days left to get those in.
