Button Button - Who's got the Button?
Happy is he who still loves something he loved in the nursery: He has not been broken in two by time; he is not two men, but one, and he has saved not only his soul but his life. ~G.K. Chesterton
Button - Button, who has the Button?
Anyone remember playing that game as a child? I do!
I remember playing with friends at school or sleep overs.
The laughing and guessing and groaning when one was incorrect.
This challenge reminded me of that game from so very long ago.
Happy memories of a simple pleasure for a simple child during a simpler time.
Today is the start of a new Clean and Simple Challenge at The Outlawz Challenge Blog.
Lynn has decided that we need to create a CAS card or project featuring ONE button.
You can use any theme and any color - but your project must be CAS and you must make sure the one button is clearly visible.
I used sketch #32 from Freshly Made Sketches and I really wanted to use a really BIG button, but when I started digging through my button (ahem) collection, I did not have one the right size that would work for me.
So I made my own but punching out a circle.
Added some chipboard for stability and running through my Big Kick to give it detail. Then I punched some holes and use gold thread to "secure" my new BIG button to the card.
