Retro Challenge - Smash That Stash - Buttons and/or Brads

Hello:)   
And so here we are at our second challenge for 2017 and the first for Team Lou for this year.
Team Lou has 2 new faces joining us for 2017.
Please join me in welcoming Tracy M & Karen R to team Lou and the SGC team.
We are so stoked to have them joining the team!

In 2017 we are trying something a little different, every so often we will be having a RETRO challenge.
These challenges are designed to have you dig into your stash and get rid of some of those older supplies that might be hanging around unloved.

For this fortnights challenge we would love to see you use some Buttons and or Brads on your projects.  Remember we are not just a card blog, we love to see scrapbook layouts, artjournal pages and all types of papercraft.

Thanks to our 2 amazing sponsors for this challenge.....
