My boys are on spring break this week. Nope we're not going anywhere. I've planned the entire week out and hopefully the weather will be great and we can enjoy our "Earth Week" themed staycation. And since Earth and the 3 R's (Recycle, Re-use and Repurpose) is on the brain, I'd like to know...
What do you do scrapbooking-wise to help with the environment?
Personally, I recycle all my paper scraps and as much packaging as I can. I also save my paper scraps by color to re-use on my scrapbooks. Sometimes it seems like too much but they do come in handy in the cricut. And last but not least, extra embellies and stickers go to my boys who happily craft and scrap with them :)
With 2 boys in the house...I get a lot of recycled art robots. And in case you're wondering...this wonderful piece of art is up for sale in their "store" and is priced at 1 Gazillion dollars (fake money only please) ;)

Happy Backward's Day

That's what they're celebrating at school today. My guys went to school with their shirts, sweaters and backpacks worn backwards. Good thing pants and shoes are too uncomfortable that way. Now how to scrap this pic? Maybe we should have a challenge to scrap I always start with photos so maybe I should start with embellishments or even papers first...hmmm.

Working on my schedule for the town rec center. My question for you is...

"Do you take classes at the town rec center? If yes, what classes do you like and what would you like to see offered - paper crafting related of course?"

Have a wonderful day!

Wacky Wednesday

At Just Scrappin' crops we play games and always always have challenges. Some are easy, some are...a challenge. This last crop, we had some cool challenges and personally, I try to do all of them. If I can't do them, how can I expect the girls to, right? And if you want to play, I would love to see what you've done with the challenges.

1. Sketch challenge - Use this sketch from for a layout.2. Use your stash challenge - 1 journaling spot + buttons + flowers + polka dots = 1 layout.3. Technique challenge - Fold or Pleat RIBBON. Add ribbon to your layout, pleat or fold it and secure it with glue, stitching or staples, adding a fun dimensional effect.4. Theme Challenge - Use a song title or lyrics, or even better, both title and lyrics for your title/or journaling on a layout.Up for a challenge?

What's your most go-to Tool ever? Which one did you have to have and never used?

My most go-to tool would have to be my cutterbee scissors. I actually have three pairs and half the time I can't find a single pair 'cos it's hidden under my mess!

The one I had to have and never used would have to be my bind-it-all. Loved the idea of being able to bind my own albums, etc but never actually bring it out to use :(
