sweet dreams

Hi Everyone,

Just a quick one to show you all my latest layout, it is for a challenge over at Scrapbooking Top 50, the guideline was "Recycled" So for me this was a huge challenge once again but in saying that I had a blast.

The 12x12 card stock was rescued from a garbage bin at Steve's work which I inked and distressed. The map is from a real map that was no longer needed (you've gotta love GPS), the green card stock is from some packaging from some Prima flowers and the other paper was torn from an old book. I have inked and distressed all the papers and hand sewn them onto the card stock. The doilies are cut from an old table runner that I got from the op shop, the clock hands were from a broken old clock destined for the bin, and the string was floating around in the bottom of the junk draw in the kitchen, the only thing I used that was not recycled where the bee's and the alpha's. A little cream paint splashed here and there............

I love all the recycled bits on this LO, and the grungey feel of it, and those pics are too cute! Great work, looking forward to seeing lots more now I am following you! ;-)
