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.. :)
