Whew! Let's Review, Shall We?

This has been such a fun week!!! Did you hop along with us? Which collection was your favorite? I stand by my decision that Morning Glory was my favorite...


... or maybe it was Party It Up. Hmmmm, regardless of my favorite I had so much fun checking out all of the blogs right along with you!
If you head over to the GCD Studios blog today one lucky winner will win the entire Summer 2009 Release: Sunny Days, Morning Glory, Vintage Boy and Party It Up! You have until 12:00 PM PST on Sunday, August 2 to leave a comment over at the GCD blog to be entered.
Now, for a little giveaway of my own!


I love buttons. I know, you are shocked, aren't you? I found the most amazing shop on Etsy, LittleRedCottage. She has the cutest ribbons, trims and of course, buttons. I love love love her button packs. I have bought, um, a gazillion buttons and I still check back, ahem, daily to see what else she has! She groups the buttons in these adorable little groups and gives them cute names. Really, there is no way that I can not buy them. These are the only buttons that I use on my layouts because she has any color that I could possibly need.

In the picture above, from left to right: Sunflowers Button Pack, Playground Button Pack and Big Top Bitties. All you have to do for a chance of winning one of these button packs is to leave a comment here telling me which new GCD Studios release was your favorite. Oh, and tell me which button pack would be your fave. You have until Midnight on Sunday to enter! I will announce the winners on Monday! :)

Now, I am off to check out the Pink Poodle Button Pack! Have a fantastic weekend!!!!

What a fun collection all of them were. I would say that I have 2 favs and they are Vintage boy (maybe because I have 6 boys...hmmmm that might be why) and my other fav is Morning Glory (love those colors)

My fav of the buttons would be those bright bold primary colors. I don't generally scrap with primary colors but those buttons jumped right out at me. I love your give aways and your blog.

Arlene said...

wow! it has been so much fun going through everyone's blogs!

I really have a hard time picking which line is my fave...BUT the one that caught my eyes quickest was the morning glory line. the colors, the patterns...pure awesomeness!

those buttons are all cute..LOL. I love me some buttons...I think the bright colors on the 1st one caught my fancy though

enjoy your weekend!!!

What a fun blog hop! I loved looking at everyone's layouts and projects. I think my favorite is Morning Glory although I do love Vintage Boy as well.

As for the buttons - they are all great colors. But I would have to say the playground primary colors. They would look great on my son's layouts!! I am going to check out that Etsy shop. Thanks for sharing!

Jennifer said...

I think Sunny Days is my favorite line and the sunflower buttons!

Michelle said...

OK so this is tough!! I like all of GCD's new lines all for different reasons. LOVE the Vintage Boy - it is so fun. Great for Ben's pics. So, I have to go with maybe that being my fav. But, then I like the other three too. The color combos on each are so great! I LOVE BUTTONS!! I have been taking all the extras from when I have purchased clothes and put them in my stash. My fav. color is green. So I love the green ones. but the Big top bitties are awesome too!

Melisa said...

I just love buttons! The playground buttons are my favorites.

My fave GCd line is Party It Up.

Amanda Sevall said...

Morning Glory is my fav... I'm a sucker for blue + green combos! ;)

And to say that I love buttons is a complete understatement!! Great collections you're giving away... I hope I win!!

Have a great weekend! :)

Corey said...

Kelly said...

I love them all, but if I had to choose one favorite.......I'd say Morning Glory.

Kimmie said...

love love love it

joy said...

Love Morning Glory, the colors in my Sun Room and yellow and blue -- so MG would be one I would use the most!

rush8888 said...

i especially like the morning glory. the greens, aquas and turquoise are so luscious. i think i would choose the playground button package. i think the would look best with morning glory. besides that, the buttons could bring a bright and shiney hote to any paper project.

Katherine said...

I just love the new GCD lines! My faveorite is Vintage Boy. Even though I have a little girl, I'm working through some childhood photos of my dad, and those papers would be great!

Thanks so much for telling us about LittleRedCottage - I love me some buttons! That Big Top Bitties set is awesome! :)

kathy s said...

What a fantastic week thanks for the previews and inspiration loved the hop i think if i really have to chose it would be the 'Party it up' set cause you can't go past all those dots and circles- maybe thats why i love buttons so much too- those sets are fab hard to pick which set i like best with them too but i think it would have to be the 'Playground button pack' those colours look nearly good enough to eat, loooove them thanks for the chance to win.

Victoria S. said...

I have to agree with you on the Morning Glory! i like the Sunny Days and the Party it Up until i saw the Morning GLory! It must be the vibrant colors and everyone's great samples!
and for the buttons, i like playground b/c it gives lots of options- (i also liked the teal ones you used in your LO and the pink poodles- and the purple set.
i checked out her site too!) thanks for sharing that!

Nancy L. said...

my fave was morning glory!
i love buttons too! my fave are ANY! thanks!

Joli said...

I don't know that I can pick a favorite, I really do like them all!!! Of everything that was shown the Vintage Boy paper with the crowns is what I want most. I love to do Princess pages for my little girl, and think it would be fun to do some Prince pages about my son.

Loe all those buttons!!!

BB said...

OK I just have to ask what is the story is with the scrapbooking letters... I started Myles's baby book this week and I always have 11 trillion leftover letters that I can not spell anything with because I used up all the vowels. Why are they doing this to me? Whyyyyyyyyy?

Heather Landry said...

Party It up is my favorite, and I love the Playground Button Pack. I am off to visit that Etsy store, you enabler you! LOL
