KLSNS Challenge #18

Yesterday all four of my kids came home with awards from school ~ how awesome is that!?!  Today brings another exciting day ~ Tyler gets to race his car in the Pine Wood Derby.  After I pick up Alicia from DI practice I think us girls will meet up with the boys and cheer Tyler on.

It is time for another challenge over at KLSNSThis week the challenge was hosted by Kelly and she asked us to "Go Green" and use recycled items on our project.    
I decided to use a picture frame that was actually headed to Goodwill (silly me, why didn't I just take out what was inside of it and put it in my craft room in the first place?!?).  Since the frame had a floral border, I thought Spring would be a good theme.  I pulled out the CC Designs Sugarplums Spring kit which is a great deal ~ you get 9 of the adorable Sugarplum stamps, 2 accessory stamps and a set of Spring Sentiments for 25% off the retail price (available for a limited time).  For this project, I chose the girl, the tree stump and the happy spring sentiment.  The paper I used for the grass was recycled from a card that I previously made but did not ever see sending out, so instead of throwing it away, I re-purposed it.  The twill came off of a present and the butterflies were cut out of some packaging from my daughter's make-up.  The blue cardstock was sponged with white ink and then I added one layer of grass to it.  The tree stump and mushroom were added with the second layer of grass and then finally the girl.  I stamped the sentiment onto the twill ribbon and added that to the bottom.  Since the frame was so decorative, I kept embellishments to a bare minimum. 

Please join us this week, we'd love to see what you can recycle on your projects!  I know the rest of the DT has some wonderful things to share with you, so take a peek at their blogs and leave them some love!
Kelly keeps adding new items to the store so hop on over there and take a peek! 

Have a wonderful day!
