Buttons: Customlaser
Sentiment: My Litle Shoebox...Tiny Alphas
American Crafts....Fabric Thickers
Brad and chain from stash
Hero Arts: Stripes Pattern

And check out those gorgeous gorgeous wooden buttons....this was one of our finds right at the end of the day and if the man in charge of the tannoy hadn't been so insistent on getting us out of the hall....I would have bought a trip over to Customlaser is called for.
