Tag You're It! Buttons


So how have you been?  I'm falling into a bad routine lately.  DH is working nights and it seems like I'm falling into his schedule sleeping a little bit later and later myself.   I'm back to crafting in the wee hours of the night too!  

I'm playing along with one of my very favorite challenges - Tag You're It!  I'm addicted to little tags - they are the perfect way to dress up so many little things.   I'm looking forward to baking again when the weather gets cooler and I'll be all ready to wrap some treats in cellophane bags and finish them off with a pretty tag.

I'm really excited this week because my good friend Marybeth from Marybeth's Time For Paper is providing the inspiration this week.  Look at this pretty tag she has for us - so clean and simple, but so many wonderful accents.... the dimensional butterfly, the stitched tag,  and the pretty background paper.  

I saw the stitching and thought of buttons!  I started with a stitched tag and added lots of colorful buttons.  I wanted some pattern paper that had lots of contrast so I went with a black print and black twine.  
Want to see what the rest of the team made?  There's a few new ladies you might want to meet too!  Just click here to jump to Tag You're It Challenge and meet the team!  I hope you find some time to play along too! 

Hugs!

OHHH my gosh!!! I've been tempted so many times to play along with this challenge, but I despise tags without any real understand as to why...LOL...does that make sense? I am ALWAYS blown away by your makes though and the whole teams and maybe just maybe I'll turn my attitude around. I absolutely love what you've created here and I wish I lived nearby for your home baked goodies! :)
hugs to you my friend and happy weekend!
