Reduce, Reuse, Recycle- and a Blog Candy Winner!!

This week's challenge at Lasting Memories is right up my alley, "Reduse, Reuse, Recycle". I LOVE to reuse my scraps, turn packaging into something scrap-worthy, and dig through the recycle bin for crafty surprises. As an added bonus, the DT was able to use images from Heart Song Designs, they're our sponsor this week!

I chose a lovely Cherry Blossom image, and printed it, along with my title, right on my pattern paper. I colored just  the blossoms with watercolor pencils for a splash of color. Did you find my reclycled item? It's the journaling tag, it's actually the packaging from a set of Karen Foster License Plates. Such a nic big tag with a great grommet- I couldn't stand to put it in the trash, so it's been living in my "recycled scraps" bin for a few years now! I used acrylic paint to dress it up, and then wrote my journaling on there once it was dry.

Ready to get recycling? Post your project over at Lasting Memories by Feb 26th for your chance to win this week's prize from Heart Song Designs. Oh...and remember I mentioned a Blog Candy winner? Here's the candy:
