Don't Throw it Away!

If you're looking for the Sparkle N Sprinkle Blog Hop...just scroll down to the next post!  Hurry, though...today's the last day to comment.

Have you seen the newest release from PaperCrafts Magazine?  It's called "Practical Solutions for Paper Crafters"  and I'm so on it!  I'm a hoarder from waaaaay back.  I can't stand to throw anything away that I think I might be able to use someday.


Is this cover not beautious as well?

Cath is hosting a series of challenges based on this issue.  This one fits me perfectly...It's the "Don't Throw It Away" Challenge.   Anyone who's peeked in on my workdesk on What's on Your Workdesk Wednesday, has seen this strip of ribbon hanging in various positions.  I've moved it  from shelf to shelf but...



I just couldn't bear to throw it away...I mean it had adhesive on it and everything.  I also had a scrap of crocheted lace and a piece of butcher's cord...butcher's cord, you ask?  Yep, that stuff you tie the turkey's legs together with at Thanksgiving time. 



I pulled them together with some scraps of Graphic 45 paper, a bit forlorn paper butterfly that got punched a long time ago and here's the result.





I think I like it...gosh...I'm gonna miss seeing that ribbon scrap though!

Supplies
3 x 5 notebook
Paper - Graphic 45
Other - ribbon scrap, butcher cord scrap, lace scrap, Martha Stewart butterfly, stick on pearls, gcd chipboard sticker (clearance item)

Pin It!

Too funny. I recognized that turkey-leg-tie-cord up at the top right away. Did you save the yellow plastic thingys too?
