Ok..It's Officially Tomorrow

Just something I found:

4PM Actually: It's a Generational Rorschach Test
Twentysomething new hire: Why is there a Harry Potter picture in our lobby?

Fortysomething manager: Actually that's a painting of John Lennon.

Silicon Valley, California Overheard by: Pop Culturally Literate
Guess that kinda sums-up how old I'm feeling these days. {{{{BBBBLLLLLAHHHHHH}}

ANYWAY, this is a cool project I have undertaken that is going to be my April workshops, It's called The Recycling Challenge. I was asked by a friend who isn't a scrapbooker {but an avid GO GREEN} person, how I could justify using all these paper materials and throwing out so much stuff, and causing the ruination of the planet by buying these goods [ meaning all the paper I avidly hoard] -- I am an avid recycler so I have set a challenge to make one item every day made out of items I would normally throw away. Here's the first few:

Recycle Challenge: Item #1
This is the scrapbook page of my young Luke Skywalker. The edges and the title [Laugh] are recycled pieces of stickers that would've been thrown away. The photo corners are an extra sticker that I cut up to make this instead of throwing it out, and the top border is a recycled piece off of a My Stickease after i used the border sticker on the lft and right sides of the page. This is all CTMH Emporium collection.

Recycle Challenge Items #2&3:
This is a XLarge Dry Roasted Peanuts jar and a Mayo jar turned into useful objects uing CTMH products from Unforgettable line. The big one is a jar for the door prize/raffle tickets to go in; and the second is the donation jars I take to local businesses for people to donate $ for Operation Smile. For more info on OpSmile visit my website: or the corporate Close to my Heart website. It's a great organization { sorry, I digress}.
Recycling Challenge Item #4:
This is a DelMonte pop-top mini tin can of mixed fruit transformed with CTMH recycled Key to My Heart Paper. The scraps from my crop went into the crimper and then into the shredder to make the grass. The stem is a straw found in my glove compartment and then scrap ribbon leaves. This is NOT 2 flowers, which is the surprise my ooey-gooey followers -- It's reversible! Pic 1 is the front and Pic 2 is the back! How cool is that !?!??
K, Well, I'm off my Coke and Dark M&M rush, and crashing fast, so I'm signing off -- until Monday; Have a great Sunday and remember to kiss the ones you love today. I mean it. :)
