Lucky

Challenge #3 over at Urban Anthology was to "go green". Specifically we were challenged to reuse, recycle, and/or repurpose at least 2 items and complete a layout with them. Well, I kinda got a little carried away...hehe! I think I put everything but the kitchen sink on my LO! I just kept coming up with all these differnt things to use, so I added them! But at the same time I wanted to maintain a good design and use things purposefully, not just to add them on there. Soooo, here's what I came up with:

Lucky








Everything but the kitchen sink:
--corrugated cardboard from underneath our frozen pizza
--Guest Check receipt from when I used to wait tables (a REALLY long time ago)
--2 playing cards from a deck that was already missing some
--2 vintage milk caps
--Jenni Bowlin shape from a pkg. of chipboard buttons
--Jenni Bowlin ruled lines from same pkg. of buttons
--mismatched fonts of chipboard letters (more on this later)
--clear domed bauble I found while picking up the girls room

Random stuff that just came together to create a "green" LO!
In case you can't read it, the journaling talks about how lucky we are to have Josh as a dad and husband. How he makes time for snuggling or tickle time, and how he's the king (lower case k) of our hearts.
