project #13

with earth day coming up and spring cleaning on everyone's mind i thought that this month a *reuse and recycle* theme would be really fun and interesting. the requirements were to turn items that may normally be thrown away into crafting supplies or embellishments. i don't know about everyone else but i do already recycle and i also have a habit of looking at "garbage" items and thinking "now what can i do with this?" actually...i have an entire drawer and a couple of file folders dedicated to these items so i was anxious to see what i could come up with! here is my overall project...

i did a 12x12 *environmentally friendly* themed layout and when i get a chance to go out and take some pictures of pretty trees and things i will add them to the page. the reused and recycled items i used in this layout were a magazine clipping, a bottle cap, and the paper (dcwv green stack) which is 70% recycled paper!
 i love this motto! definitely one to live by, especially if you are one to go out and visit nature.
this was a fun thing to try. i embossed this bottle cap and then stamped into it. i do suggest being VERY careful if you want to try this. i did use needle nose pliers but the little cap is hard to maneuver and it will stay hot for a long time. i know this because i burnt myself...*twice*.
