Because You're Sweet

Hey there! I hope you are having a great Tuesday! It's sunny here so can't complain. :-) Thursday is Earth Day and I wanted to share a upcycled or repurposed item I made with you in honor of the celebration.
I know it's not a card, but I used Laura's sketch from 2S4y this week which I turned horizontally.




I recycled a granola box and covered it with gorgeous Webster's Pages papers. The Nature's Story line is beautiful with butterflies, birds, and fruits.Then I added a scallop border along with lace trim, a navy blue Bazzill bracket I hand cut and distressed with ink, a big satin bow and added the floral/bead pieces to embellish.


Well that's it for me this week. I will be back next week with something new to share and maybe a little bit of a tan after being outside for Jazz Fest this weekend. Take care!

This is a stunning piece of art, and I can't believe that is a granola box. I'll never have to buy any gift again (well, except for supplies, like those gorgeous papers!)

This is marvelous! The Webster's Pages papers are gorgeous and I LOVE the floral sprigs you added with the ruffled crepe paper! I can't believe this used to be a granola box! Have fun at Jazz Fest and take your sunscreen. ;o) I'm so happy you were able to join us at 2S4Y! Hugs!
