Charlene's Handmade Clay Buttons

Hi to my followers!

I hope you have enjoyed the first week of Spring!  Mine started out with snow, that quickly melted.  I was at a 2 day scrapbook retreat with friends- both old and new.  It was at a beautiful church camp.  I will share pictures here. What a blessing that weekend was for everyone!

Most of you who have been following me awhile, know I am a bit of a scrapbook junkie.  Now this is not a bad thing.  I remind myself of a song by Point of Grace and the words "Have what you want and want what you have..."  Because of this, I have been using quite faithfully the resources I have and if I don't or can't, I share with others who can. 

That said, I have to tell you about my new found scrapbook "have to have"- they are beautiful handmade clay buttons by a local scrapper, Charlene.  She does a wonderful job.  Until last night's LSS crop, I hadn't had the opportunity to sit and chat and get to know her.  She has such a wonderful spirit about her and is so glad to be able to use the talent that God has bestowed upon her.  We are all glad that she has this talent!

So here are pics of her buttons, a layout I did using them, and info to go to facebook and become a fan and leave a comment to win a set of one of a kind alphabet tag buttons!

#1 Song the Day You Were Born Challenge

 Please go on over to #1 Song When You were Born Challenge
at Creative Scrapbook Divas.  You will need to register, please so you can play along.  The challenge goes until March 7 and here are the details:

My challenge for you is to make a layout that pertains to the song that was #1 on Billboard's Hot 100 on the day you were born. The best way to find this out if you don't already know, is to Google the words "#1 song on" (and fill in day, month and year you were born. Then use the title, lyrics or even the artist as an element in your layout.
You can also go to this link Billboard Top 100
The twist I am going to give you is that you must use some sort of ink to outline your letters (title or subtitle, etc) and you must use pop dots (3D adhesive) on at least one element on the layout.

Hope you have fun with this. I chose it because myself and 3 kids all had birthdays in the month of February.
I will give one RAK to the lucky winner. It will be a package of Thickers letters from American Crafts and something extra special that will be a surprise!

Please RSVP to the event there. And be sure to post your entry at Unique Technique in the discussion called "Day You Were Born" challenge, before the deadline at midnight CST on March 7.

Here is my example...My song was "I'm a Believer" by the Monkees

Thank You for Participating in our 1st Blog Hop at My Scrapbooking Supplies

I want to thank everyone who played along with our 1st Blog Hop for My Scrapbooking Supplies.  And I want to welcome the new followers of my blog!  I have a lot to post in the next few days so stay tuned!

Tomorrow, Friday, March 5 will be the day that all of us on the DT at My Scrapbooking Supplies will be announcing our RAK winners.  Keep your fingers crossed, it might be you!

Stay tuned for more RAK from me in the future!

Hope you are having a scrap happy day!
