Circles, Buttons, & Scraps

Hi There!

I don't know about you but my scrap files (yes I file them - in color order) are busting at the seams literally.  I had to buy a new file holder this week for my blues. So I just had to figure something out.  So here is what I came up with. What do you think?
I used a few challenges for inspiration. I just pulled out as many blue patterns that looked okay together and started die cutting.  I used the MCT circle die and the MCT button die. 

I then added some twine from My craft spot & Ribbon from LSP. I ended up making 15 cards with various colors but I think this one turn out best :) and... I can snap the file folder now :)

I always seem to have more blues than any other color, too! It's fun to start with a pile of mish-mash and turn it into something beautiful.

Luckily, I work at a school, so when I need to pare down my scrap file (I file also) I give everything that I don't love anymore to the art department. They really appreciate it!
