Creative Crafts DT Challenge "Recycle"

Happy Tuesday Morning!  Did all of us eat our share of chocolate in the last few days?  I hope everyone has enjoyed and recovered from all the festivities this past weekend.  I spent time with my middle son and DIL, and her family ( my other two sons live on the west coast). And my youngest sister and her family were there also. It was lovely, sunny, a bit chilly but lovely all the same.

Thanks to all who particiapated in our embossing challenge, sponsors and players, but another two weeks has flown right by and it's time for a new challenge at Creative Craft Challenge.
I'm ready are you??? 

Our Lovely sponsors for this challenge are.....

So are you ready to go green, no not with food poisoning or envy but Recycling? That's right, we want you to use  bottle caps, an old placemat, old jeans, safty pins, or an old books , old paper, or an old man, opps how did he get in there. ?!?. Use ANY thing at all in a NEW way to create your piece of art. We all have junk, I mean prized things lying around that we can put to good use instead of throwing them in a corner or in the nearest

Here's what I came up with.  

I used an empty bath salt bottle and wrapped it with scrap lace which was left over from when I made my wedding dress many moons ago, the pearled trim was also from that stash. Yes I was styling back then, broke too, so I made my own dress, but

The beads, except the little heart were from an old necklace, including the ones I created the finial from. The gold trim I wrapped around the cork stopper was from Christmas trim we saved when we opened presents. I am a hoarder it is And I have a handy item in case I need a gift, it's very pretty when the light shines through it..

Here's an Artsy view.

So start digging through your drawers, cupboards and what is it anyway you have stored in all those old shoe boxes??? Go take a peek and start Creating!  Be sure to go to the Creative Craft challenge and enter your lovelies.
