          I don't believe you can associate a label with an image directly without some kind of custom skinning.  And even then I'm not sure.  But what you could do to get the same effect is to put the label inside a container that can have an image associated with it such as bordercontainer.  I realize this is a bit klunky, but it may be the best way to do it for now.



          <s:BorderContainer x="100" y="200" borderVisible="false" height="100%" width="100%" >

          <s:Label text="Label" color="#000000" depth="10" />

          <s:Rect width="70" height="30" >


          <s:BitmapFill source="@Embed('image.jpg')" alpha="1"/>

              Never tried that, but I strongly suspect you could do it with a custom skin. 


              Good luck!

                Also, you might want to post the buttonBar question separately so that more people can see it.

                      for flex 3 components (like your lastest code example), it cant be done - you would need to create a custom component


                      for flex 4 components (eg s:ButtonBar) you can create a custom skin based on spark.skins.spark.ButtonBarSkin
