Going Green?

What do you do with your extra chipboard after you've used whatever it's holding together? I decided to put the whole "recycle reduce reuse" campaign into action and made this cute photo collage with the frame from a SU On Board Lots of Letters set. I hadn't already used the "J" so I decided to leave it in (for our last name.) I spray painted the chipboard white then inked the edges a bit with SU Close to Cocoa and also did some stamping on it. I used the numbers from the Pink Paislee Vintage Moon stamp set, and also the frame and "thankful" stamp. The papers are all just scraps that were sitting in the scrap box...this is a GREAT way to use up those tiny pieces of PP that you just can't bring yourself to throw away. Finally I added the flower, some buttons and ribbons and called it done. It was a very quick project and I love the way it turned out!

On a side note...I appologize for being AWOL from the blog-o-sphere for so long. I've been busy creating, but not blogging about it. I plan to get back on track and keep up again though, so hopefully you'll still be checking in!!! Oh, and keeps your eyes peeled for a fun som'in some'in in the near future. :)
