Recylce It Challenge @ The Crafty Pad

Hello folks! 

Yep it is Sunday already and time for this week's new challenge at
The Crafty Pad Challenge! 

Challenge - #159 Recycle IT!

I hope you are all as excited as I am!  I really loved playing along to this one and I hope I can inspire you all to play along too!

I scavenged around and went head on by recycling the dress on this card that made from crape paper from one of the kids birthday parties. All the matting on this and what I printed the images onto is all book covers and old manilla folders from Dylans' books and school stuff last year that I just distressed with my inks.  And the ribbon on the skirt waist came from a birthday pressie wrapping.
Images used - The Crafty Pad Designs - Dress Form Trio and Sewing Machine and Elements Set (the measuring tape on the right) both available from HERE 

This week the very lovely
has sponsored us!
For one lucky random winner, they will be receiving a
£10 voucher to spend in the online store!
Thank you very much Joanna Sheen!

As always the Crafty Pad Girls have done amazing works to inspire you all to play along too, so please drop by the Challenge blog and see them!
