Button, button, who's got the button? Craft Hoarders Anonymous Blog Hop

Altered Pages Design Team has joined the Craft Hoarders Anonymous Challenge Blog Design Team for Challenge #14 Button It UP in a Blog Hop!




Have you ever played the button game?  You know, "Button, button, who's got the button?" 
If you have, then you can tell why I chose this little Altered Pages cutie for my button girl--she looks as if she has that button in her hot little hands, and can barely contain her excitement!

Like so many of us, I love buttons, so this Craft Hoarder's Anonymous challenge was a perfect chance to sort out some of my collection and make a little button jar:
With the little button girl tag, of course:
Here is a look at some of my button treasures:

Thank you for stopping by, and be sure to stop by Craft Hoarders Anonymous for the rest of the hop!  One last picture?
Supplies--buttons, canning far, and trim from my stash
Tag from Ephemera Pack, Lightbulb shaped safety pin to attach tag, Memento Peanut Brittle Ink, and of course the Altered Pages image.

Ready to hop?  There will be some great prizes from Altered Pages--a set of Japanese Oil Pastels and huge lot of fun ephemera!  The more comments you leave, the more your chances to win.

When I was a little girl my grandma had a friend she used to visit. Whenever those grown-up ladies were chatting I was given a box of buttons to play with! I've loved buttons ever since! I love your tag and the lovely tag on the jar. It took me back to my childhood! Julie Ann xxx

I don´t speak English, at least I read, but believe this is a game such "el gran bonete" .... is that "- Al Gran Bonnet has been lost a bird and says that Black has (pointing to any of the participants, the latter has the named color or not, to try to confuse). If the black is attentive will say: - Me, sir? - Yes, sir. - No, sir. - Well, then who is? - The Green!, etc, etc... Well, I will participate!!
By the way, who´s that girl?
