Eyelets and more Eyelets!

Admit it! If you have been a scrapper or cardmaker for very long, you DO have a stash of eyelets! Why, because there was the time we used eyelets on about everything so we had to have them in every color and a few sizes!
At the Pursuit of CraftYness blog, the group did a challenge where we created something with the thought of "Something Old..." as our incentive. I sat for a minute and thought about a supply that I had lots of but didn't really use anymore and of course my eyelet "COLLECTION" came to mind. (Notice I called it a "COLLECTION"! Sounds far more important and maybe that also gives it a position of prominence in my drawers) I hand cut the tree top and the trunk and filled in the tree top with eyelets. Can I say this was FUN!!! I just might have to come up with another project that uses lots of eyelets.

My little flowers are eyelets too! To keep with the "Something old..." thought, I pulled out some KI Memories papers that I had always liked.
Thanks for visiting, Linda (aka lbpost)
