well here is Mine and my friend katy's epic entry into the mega button challenge. much blood sweat and tears went into this beauty. all the hot glue in the world to! Katy's fingers lost all sense of touch from so much exposure to hot glue! As soon as i saw this challenge i knew it was meant for her, she has the biggest button collection i have EVER seen! i must say it did make a big dint in her collection thats for sure!
 now, on to the pictures!






and with the left over buttons...


I think this may be the first time i have entered a craft challenge properly Smiley
yay for buttons!
- Christi and Katy

Love it! Am so jealous that there were enough buttons to cover the suitcase and then to *fill* it! My button collection is tiny in comparison. How did she end up with so many buttons in the first place!?

First off, the colors really grabbed my eye. That's spectacular! Then looking at the bigger pics I saw the tulip design and was impressed again. And the sheer volume of buttons is amazing! Like someone else said, my buttons could probably fit in an altoid tin.
