RECYCLE " Don't Toss it, Use it!! Simply Betty Challenge

Hi everyone today is my week to host our challenge over Simply Betty Challenges.

Today I am challenging you to RECYCLE. Come on how easy is that..

Don't toss it, Use it.

You can use scrap leftover paper, packing from paper, embellishments, bits and pieces of leftover embellishments or anything craft or non craft related.

It's up to you, just have fun with it and use things in a way you would never even think

to use on your creations.

Scrap pieces of anything gets used in my house as I have a 6yr old who claims all my scraps and a lot of things that are not. She just gets in my crafting supplies and makes her-self at home. She will never ask if she can have anything, I realize she has taken something after it's covered in!! kids!! And I mean a ton of glue, she wants to make sure it stays put and that Mommy won't take it from her if it's covered in glue.

I can't wait to see what you come up with for this RECYCLE Challenge.

This prize up for grabs this week for our Recycle Challenge is..........

Here is my creation using all recycled stuff.

I used the Orginial Emo Betty rubber stamp for my image.

Here are the different things I used, my recycled items... Newspaper, The green behind the image was the packaging from some Prima bling embellishments, all my paper was scraps, the little postcards was just on the back of the packaging to show you what was in the set( I cut them out and used them as an embellishment).

The brown flowers was made with some paper I was going to toss in the trash. I was refilling my E57 copic marker the other night and by accident poured it in my E47 marker. So I had to use a piece of scrap paper and keep coloring on it until It was starting to run out of ink, then I refilled it with the right color. For some reason I didn't throw away the piece of CS and decided to use it on my card to make some flowers.
Betty was also stamped on a piece of scrap CS then I colored her and cut her out, without her little dog.

Well I hope you feel like challenging yourself and decide to play along with us. I had sooo much fun doing this challenge and trying to figure out what I was going t0 use on my card.

Okay now to see more Recycled creations go HERE to the Simply Betty Challenge blog to see what our wonderful DT has created. Starting today we have also broke up our DT members into 2 groups.. Team A (My group) and Team B. We decided with soo many releases and challenges that we would make it easier on all our DT members. We can still play on both but are only required to create for our challenges every other week and new releases and Blog Hops, Oh speaking of Blog Hops stay tunned because we have one on Tuesday to introduce our New Steampunk Romance collection.

I hope everyone has a great weekend with lots of crafting and family time.

Wow! Your art is incredible! Do you teach? or would ever consider doing a tutorial on how you "color" in your characters? Amazing! I didn't know there was such a large group out there doing this kind of art!
