Lasting Memories #200: Buttons and a HOP!!!

Hello and thanks for stopping by! We're hopping with celebration and excitement this week :) Yes, we're having a blog hop in celebration of our 200th post Lasting Memories! Our challenge? BUTTONS! We are looking for buttons, buttons everywhere on those layouts this week! Along the way, you'll see that some of us are offering a little candy on our blogs but you have to visit us to see who! We've also gotten a little creative with our buttons so we hope you'll be inspired! You should have arrived here from Elizabeth's blog and if this is your first stop, please be sure to hop back to Lasting Memories to start the hop so you don't miss a thing! Each of us has a letter for you to collect that will spell out a scrapbook themed word, so don't forget to jot down my letter which you'll see below. Once you've completed the hop, leave your answer in the comment section back at Lasting Memories. Comments will be moderated so there's no peeking! Then you have to enter your LO and guess what?! Our grand prize winner will receive a $25 gift certificate from A2Z Scrapbooking Store!! Awesome right?? Oh!! And one MORE thing! I'm also offering up some candy* to one of my followers who comments on this post!

Here is how I used my buttons!  I stuck them all down to a line of double sided tape - have to love that stuff! I sewed a few of them, just for variety. Thanks to my bff for picking me up the pack of brown and pink buttons, she knows its a fav colour combo of mine!

I added my title using my most favourite scrappy tool, my Cameo!

Buttons on top of buttons? I say, "why not?"

Now, lets talk PRIZES! We have a Grand Prize AND some prizes along the hop from the design team. Those you'll have to find on your own and be sure to read the post to see what you need to do in order for a chance to win! Our grand prize winner will receive a $25 gift certificate from A2Z Scrapbooking Store!!
