ScrapTiffany Recycled Blog Hop

Welcome to the ScrapTiffany Recycled Blog Hop! I am your first stop and I am so excited you are joining us!

You should be arriving here from the ScrapTiffany blog.  If you have landed here first, head on back to the ScrapTiffany blog to start hopping!
We are all going to have some fun with Recycling today and tomorrow.  I used to own a scrapbook kit club, and we would often split products for our kits. One month we used chipboard from My Mind’s Eye that came in these buckets that looked so cute filled with glittered chipboard shapes.

I ended up with tons of these and it seemed so wasteful to just toss them, so for the past 2 years they have been recycled in several different ways for fun little gifts.
This seemed like the perfect item to dress up for Easter with a bit of papers I didn’t plan to use and a few tools from my stash.

I am going to the CKC Mesa Scrapbook Convention this weekend. I will be bringing some goodies back to give away to a commenter from this post.

So follow me and leave a comment for a chance to win. (I will pay for US postage, and would be happy to give away to an international winner if you help out with the postage and cover the difference).

Winner will be posted when I get back on Sunday.

Thanks for hopping by!

Next stop on the Blog Hop is Katie

Happy Hopping!
