PaperBlooms Challenge

Happy Earth Day, everyone! In celebration, PaperBlooms wants to see your green side. It's much easier than you think. Look around & create something magnifique with recycled, reclaimed, reused items. Need some inspiration? Head on over to PaperBlooms & check out the green goodness there.

Here's my take:



I picked up a basket of strawberries yesterday at the Commissary for $1.69! WOWZA! Can't beat that! Good thing, too, because Belle is eating them like crazy! Tomorrow, we're headed to Sweet Berry Farms in Marble Falls, TX, to pick them with our homeschool group. So I definitely have berries on the brain. For this challenge, I was especially inspired because this felt is made from recycled materials. Too, I did a little Googling & learned Amy Butler's new Lotus line is made from recycled paper & uses soy based inks. Not that I need anymore reason to by Amy Butler's papers... LOL. The card itself is paperboard (again, cereal box). There is punched Webster Dictionary paper & vintage buttons as well. I know you're eyeing the flowers, right? Those are Leah's PaperBlooms. She has some new yummies in her store so go check it out.
