I think I need to RECYCLE the past couple of days :-)... for I am a little late submitting this.. but better late than never.
Here is what I came up with...
The recycled Aluminim Foil for the sunglasses...
Close-up of the journaling and the piece of Recycled String that I added...
Other than the Letter Stickers for the title and the photos themselves... I TRUELY recycled everything on this layout. Every bit of paper used is from my scrap stash. Even the background paper behind the pictures is left over from the "Congrats Card" I just made for Monday. (Scroll down to see that post)
Mr. Sunshine is hand cut. The rays are just strips cut the same size. I got that idea from the August issue of Scrapbooks Etc. (on the cover). The sunglasses are using the 1 1/4" and 1" circle punches.. then placing the foil behind. (I'm pretty proud for thinking up that idea!!!) The frame is hand cut. The Water is punched with the 1 1/4" circle punch and the 1 3/4" circle punch is varying places to make it look like moving waves. The clouds are punched with the regular size scallop circle punch and the 2 3/8" scallop circle punch. The Life Buoy is from the "Life is a Beach" Cricut cartridge.
So... if I can do this... YOU CAN TOO! Come join us over at LMCH CH 44 and show us your recycled layouts!! The Design Team has all kinds of ideas to share with you as well.
You have until Saturday 9:00pm EST to ENTER!!!
I am also entering this layout over at the Getting Scrappy Challenge 11 - Get Punchy!! Well as you can see from above.. I used all kinds of punches. You also need to include a Cricut or SVG cut somewhere on the layout. (Life Buoy)
And finally... I am joining the Linking Party over at You had me at craft - Made it myself Mondays where you can link up with others and have fun sharing your stuff and visiting some new friends!!
