PTI Blog Hop, Buttons!

This month for Papertrey Ink's Blog Hop, we were challenged to use BUTTONS on our projects.  I decided to make this challenge a double!  I think buttons and plaid go hand in hand (maybe that's because I really want to learn how to sew!).  I have the Faux Ribbon set from PTI and decided to get out some Guide Lines 1 Grid Paper and work on making some plaid paper to go along with my button projects!

PTI Stamp Sets:  Blooming Button Bits, Faux Ribbon, sentiment from Everyday Button Bits

 PTI Stamp Sets:  Everyday Button Bits, Faux Ribbon, sentiment from Vintage Picnic
PTI Stamps Sets:  Baby Button Bits, Faux Ribbon

 Yep, mad for plaid...and buttons, too! Can't WAIT until PTI comes out with another Button Bits set! Thanks for stopping by and have fun on the rest of the hop!
