Paper Blooms - Challenge #4






In honor of Earth Day, use something recycled on your card or LO or alter something that would normally be thrown out (eg. old coffee can, empty tissue box), is the challenge this week over at Paper Blooms Blog . I decided to do a layout, and used a piece of old cardboard and inked it and then the empty part of a check book for the journalling square. And then used some of Leah's beautiful blooms from her shop Paper Blooms ETSY Store to tie it all together - kinda using a play on them being blooming "buds' as well as my dd and my good friends son being best "buds". Please go over to Paper Blooms Blog and join in on the challenge! GO! GO!
