And HAIL to the graduates!

It's the season for MOVIN' on UP!

I got WAY busy with my buttons, playing with THIS little collection-o-vintagy
goodness! Just a little word play for the sharper grads... "Gee" u r SMART...!
Getting lost and INSPIRED, sifting through a {near} BOTTOMLESS bag of
button treasure, was FABULOUS inspiration! THEN, I turned to my FAVORITE
weekly sketch challenge.... CARD PATTERNS!!!!!! {Meeee-OWWWW!}

MeanWHILE! Have you checked out the Buttons Galore & More BLOG?
The design team is UP and buttoning like never before! If you haven't clicked
your way to buttony INSPIRATION, I hope you'll give them a peek from time
to time.... THE THINGS we are doing with BUTTONS, may astound you!
{You may find yourself thinking "I didn't know you could do THAT???
- with BUTTONS! Ooooooooowwwwwwwww!!!!!!!"}

I'll be back, on behalf of Buttons Galore & More, next week, with
a POPPED off the PAGE, scrapbook layout that I hope may have your
buttons TWINKLING! I cannot WAIT to share!

Here's hoping your day is FESTOONED with goodness! Have FUN!

Well, now isn't that a dapper card?! :> Reminds me of my East Coast days, preppy, dapper, and all buttoned up. Actually, while that buttoned, blinged, stamped medallion looks great on your card, it would do a scrapbook page justice too! :>
