The Button Challenge

Thursday, June 13, 2013

The Simon Says Stamp and Show blog challenge is "The Button Challenge" this week.  Love it! I have noticed "buttons" have been a recurring theme in most of my projects. (BTW...Did you see the button flowers I made recently?) So I was pretty excited for the opportunity to see everyone else's button projects. :)
 
As you can see, I am still obsessed intrigued with the Avery Elle tag dies. And truthfully, I don't remember where I got those rubber stamps. They are probably about ten years old.
 
 
I purchased the old photos at an estate sale several years ago.  They are all small photos, probably captured with an old Brownie camera.  They aren't "good" photos, but to me they are treasures.  If you look close, you can see the old gas pumps in the background of the photo of the girl with her eyes closed.  How cool is that? 

Don't forget that I have a blog candy giveaway going on now.  You can get the details here.  You can't win if you don't enter! :)
 
Happy Stamping!

  4. Michelle...your vintage tags are so much fun. Love those old photos that you got at an estate sale. They look like treasures to me! :) I love how you've mixed the very bright almost retro looking designs with the vintage photos. The buttons on your tags look awesome, too!

  5. Hi Michelle, these are wonderful colourful tags, so cheerful and the colours combine so well with the old photos. The buttons add wonderful dimension and I love the overall feel to these and the elongated shape too. Don't you feel great when you dig out stamps you have not used for a while. Thanks so much for joining in the Simon Says Stamp and Show Challenge. Tracy x
