'Recycling' challenge at Scrap Africa

If you have been saving all those clothing tags or bits and pieces that you thought were just to pretty or interesting to throw away, now is your chance!  Scrap Africa's new challenge is all about recycling! :) You need to use at least one recycled item on your project.  For more information and to check out all the beautiful examples from the Design Team, go HERE.
Here is my example.  As you can see, I've saved the bow and bell from my chocolate bunny to use on my page. :)  I've used my DT kit from The Scrapbook Store, this time the beautiful Manor House Creations 'Believe' collection.
A close up of some of my background.  I've used The Crafters Workshop 'Tile Texture' template with texture paste and some Glimmer Mist.  After drying, I added stamping using Kaisercraft Texture stamps and a couple of ink splatters.  The title was cut using my Silhouette Cameo.

The chipboard 'Circular Panel' is from 2Crafty and the wood veneer arrows from WOW.
All the flowers are from Manor House Creations.

It's such a fun challenge... I hope you get a chance to play along with us.  You have until the end of January to get your entries in!
Thank you for visiting and have an awesome weekend!
Until next time.

A charming page about a "sweet" topic. My favourite too. Such a fun idea to include both upcycling and Bunny :)

This is a great page and i love the fact you took a photo of your bunny and kept the little ribbon and bell to scrap with it. Awesome page and very inspiring.
