Recycle it!

Its Wednesday and challenge time again at the Stampotique designer's blog. 

SDC107: Recycle It

Sam Read is our hostess this week and here is what she is challenging us all with:

I dislike throwing anything away that 'might come in handy one day' so I have a corner of my art room filled with bits and bobs to be recycled. For this weeks challenge I'm inviting you to recycle something, I've chosen an empty glass jar and turned it in to a hanging candle holder for the garden, now all I need is some nice warm evenings . . .fingers crossed!

I ABSOLUTELY LOVE this theme!  Not sure if it is such a good thing for me tho..since I tend to hoard a bit tooooo much! lol  
I couldnt resist using "baby cakes" here ..she saves all her shopping tags and starbucks  scraps.  I colored her with copics and popped her up on some dp (cant remember name)..but it has purses all over it. :)  Then I use some book page to punch a heart out and some old martini cup brads. Last I stamped "sometimes I pretend" and attached.  Maybe I am crazy but some of the clothing tags these days are just too cute to throw out! 
challenges:  Pile it ON challenge blog= use some bling, Simon Says= anything goes ( they will pick 2 winners this time yay! ) , Daring cardmakers= forgotten treasures (martini brads here!) they are so old! I love brads!   and Inspire Me Fridays= anything goes! 
Thanks for looking in!  Happy Hump day :)
