WooHoo!!! I'm Guest Designer at Frosted Designs this week and boy am I among some talented ladies over there!! The challenge that they have going on right now is getting you prepped for Earth Day- to reuse or repurpose something you have around the house. How fun!!! Since I am a crazy pack-rat, this challenge was PERFECT for me!
I have a whole bin in my craft room of items I've been saving, metal juice lids, fun packaging items, gift tags, all sorts of things I'd just HATE to throw away, they just might come in handy some day! For my very simple "By The Sea" layout I repurposed a mesh bag from the packaging of some water toys- this just seemed so "beachy" to me! I also used a coaster from Starbucks as the circle behind my journaling strips. I just loved the pea-green color and couldn't bear to part with it when my coffee was finished! I hope you'll have a chance to visit the rest of the Frosted Designs Design Team and see what fabulous projects they have up for inspiration. Here's a hint on a few crazy items that were repurposed by the DT: a coffee sleeve, a bathroom mirror, the zipper to an old skirt and a dryer sheet. Sounds like a crazy scavenger hunt! =) T
