Lasting Memories Challenge *Recycle

I love to recycle so --- Lasting Memories challenge #44, is a wonderful challenge for me, :)  I do it all the time. :)  I like to make my own "chipboard" elements out of paper board--it works great in a Cricut machine, and then you can make a million shapes. I use almost the whole sheet of paper (little mismatched bazzill as well), and the foam tape, I use it ALL--ha--these things add to all my pages I figure, makes it a little more fun for me, to know I am creating something and not throwing so much away. :)  I hoard things that we use in and on the house, that would otherwise be trash (like on this layout, the little bit of mudding tape)--it works great, as it is sticky on one side and paper on the other...  I collect buttons off of everything, and ribbon the same way....  So here are a few of my ways to "recycle".
Look at all the wonderful D/T inspiration, and recycle with Lasting Memories this week. :)
I'll add a couple pics of my "recycling" inspiration.. :)

Challenge The scappiest and Fantabulous Cricut

I used the wonderful sketch from The Scrappiest,
Sketch 124
and added a sun from the simply charmed Cricut for the challenge at Fantabulous Cricut, and I used the font, from the Zoo cricut cartridge.
Fun fun, to finally get going on some summer fun layouts. :)

Challenge page

I am entering this layout in a challenge at both Lets Scrap Blog & Scrapping the Music.  I have taken some words from the song "Write a Song" over at scrappin the music "high in the sky"--and applied them to my layout, of Salem, OR, capitol.  And, I have utilized the right half of the sketch at Lets Scrap, for my layout.  Thank you to both sites for the inspiration! :)

Challenge #42 Creating Lasting Memories

I loved the idea of creating my own background, for the new Creating Lasting Memories Challenge.  It was fun to use some things, I forget about in my stash...  (stamps, embossers, and such)--however, I was a bit stuck on what to do, so I cruised through some other challenges, and found a current challenge at Creative Craft World, that has a sketch, and asks you to incorporate stamps as well, so that got the creative wheels turning... Here is what I came up with. :)
