DCD Challenge

Here's the new challenge at Die Cuttin' Divas this week.

In honor of Earth Day (today), use something

I was having trouble coming up with something recycled.  I had thought of repurposing a container, but didn't want to duplicate what my design team sisters were doing.

So I recycled a calendar my daughter gave me years ago.  It was a desktop crafty calendar intended to be re-used for making scrapbook pages, etc.  I know, not very creative!  But I was happy to put it to use since I've only used it maybe once or twice.    

I pulled out these pages to start, and cut the party bird from the Birthday Cakes cartridge.  I think the pink polka dots that I wound up using on the bird look much better than my original selection of the reddish-orange paper.

Be sure to visit the Die Cuttin' Divas blog to see all the other recycled projects made by our Diva Design Team.  We hope you'll join in the challenge this week using something recycled in your project.  Be sure to use a die cut, too, and link your post to DCD.

Thanks for stopping by; appreciate it!
