What Do You Have Around Your House?!!
Thursday, June 17, 2010
This week's challenge is to "use something from around the house" as an embellishment. Well, I jumped at this one because I'm always "upcycling". Whenever I'm "cleaning out" stuff that Joseph has "outgrown", I try to figure if I can use it somehow. Sometimes yes and sometimes I'm just hoarding...lol!! Anyway, I use old puzzle pieces, games, books, anything that my imagination can turn into something on a page. So, I'm actually going to show a couple projects this week. You can find more details about these projects and others I have done on my blog by clicking HERE!
This is using an old card game called PIT... (I photo'd the CORN card next to my layout so you can see how I altered it and used it on my layout).
And my husband brought home these flyers for some event because Joseph LOVES monkeys. So, I turned one into a bookmark for him by covering it with a little pp & punched cirles w/brad accents.
And one last layout where I upcyled a piece of an old puzzle (one with those HUGE pieces).
Ok, so now go through you stuff and find something fun that is "not typically" a scrapbook item and get it on a layout or card or any other project and let us see it....!!!
You could win this prize... All you have to do is participate in a challenge sometime during the month of June and become a follower to be entered to win!! The more projects you link, the more chances you have to win!! *Projects must be posted and linked on or after June 4th and before noon EST on July 1st to be eligible to win.
