MAY 15th Design Team reveal and challenge!

Hi, sorry it's a bit late but I wanted to do a layout for this reveal! 
The challenge for the sketch teams this month was to  

use recycled materials for the squares on the sketches. You could use something such as cardboard, gift wrap, tissue paper...

I used paint chips and corrugated cardboard on this one plus the cardstock is from the Greenfield paper company that sponsored us for the blog hop.
I used magazines, scraps and a piece of a dictionary page to make my squares.

I used old flash cards my son had when he was a little guy, and part of his school work to complete my last day of school page.

and mine:
I was looking through a magazine one day and there was a FULL SHEET of VELLUM in there! There was some advertising on it, but I didn't care! I used the vellum for the squares in the background. I used an old business card to make the date tag.


Repurposed sheet music and restaurant bill.

Jennifer joined us this time as well! Thanks Jennifer!

and mine:

I used some Prima packaging cardboard for the squares.

Here are the altered team creations!!!
Shadow Box made from a cigar box. The material is from an outdated Upholstery sample book of fabrics


The beads I used were from my Mom's sewing basket.The paint colour used on the canvas is a mixture of 2 shades of acrylic that I had on hand, rather than purchasing a "new" specific colour.Scrap of mini ric-rac came from my scrap ribbon-bin!

Thanks ladies!!!!! Great creations again this month!!!!

We would LOVE to see you try this challenge!!! Please let us know if you are inspired to create it GREEN!!!!!
