Hi there....

 I am so excited to announce a
 very special giveaway
available to followers/new followers of my blog.
 My very talented friend Elizabeth is offering up a $25 credit to her wonderful ETSY store, Buttons and Badges.   She makes all sorts of wonderful flair for your scrapbook/craft projects, mirrors, offers different sizes of flair/pins, and even takes custom orders. I have been ordering from Buttons and Badges for a few years now---her flair is on trend and adorable, and her prices are very reasonable....the best I have seen for products like hers, in fact.

 Here's what you need to do to be entered for a chance to win:

 2. Visit the Buttons and Badges ETSY store and find something you love! 

 3. Come back to part-time pretties and leave a comment telling me (1) that you have liked the FB page, and (2) what your favorite Buttons and Badges product is!

 4. If you happen to be a new follower of part-time pretties, mention that in your comment as well.  If a new follower wins, I may just add some other little goodies to the winnings :)

Here are some projects I have done featuring Elizabeth's work---I include her flair on almost every layout!!!  It always adds the perfect touch.
See the little blue polka-dot flair to the left, below:

 And the yellow triangle flair (sorry, got a little reflection there in my photo!)
And this lovely star...

And a sneak peek of an upcoming DT project below, using LARGER flair, which I love!
I hope you tell your friends and lots of you enter to win the prize to Buttons and Badges!
You have until November 29, midnight to enter---open to international entries as well!  I will announce the winner on November 30!
Thanks so much for stopping by today and good luck to you :)
