Tonight is the March Papertrey Bloghop.
This month the challenge was to use buttons! I have had this idea for awhile now and when I heard about this challenge I knew it was the perfect opportunity to make this.
I love making quilted rag bags and incorporating stamped images. When the button bit stamp sets came out I thought they would be work perfectly when making these bags. The stems for the cherries come from the original Button Bits set and Pure Poppy Buttons were added to finish them off. It took me 3 days to make this bag but I am really happy with how it came out and am so glad to see how well the button bit stamp sets worked. I will definitely be making more of these bags in the future now.
Today is also my 41st birthday. So far it has been a great day! The sun is shining and the snow we got on Tuesday is melting fast. My sister and niece came over this morning and brought me some beautiful tulips. I spent the afternoon with my mom and Emilia and we went to the Apple store so I could upgrade my IPhone to the 3GS model. I was one of those people that went out and bought one when they first came out and spent way to much on it! After Apple lowered the price on the new ones they sent the people that bought the original ones a gift card to use towards a new one. I have just continued to use the old one but today I decided it was time to upgrade especially since Rich graciously offered to pay the difference for my birthday present. Tonight I will be spending the evening here with my blog friends. I hope to be eating a strawberry yogurt sundae then too. That's it for now. I look forward to seeing what everyone else comes up with. As always thank for stopping by and I hope you have great night.
