Creative Playground

This is scrapbook designer, Donna Downey... Once a month this newsletter is sent out... you can click here to sign up. In each "issue" it gives a challenge. Then the following month she posts some of her favorites. Last month was Shopping Tags-- you had to use your shopping tags in layouts, mini books, etc. I took the challenge and made a CHA book using all the clothing tags we collected over the course of the month. I was so excited to see I was part of her selection!! Here is some of the book. (stay tuned for next month, I will try and do the challenge again-- this time uses old books)

The month before was using trash. You had to use things you would usually throw away or recycle. I made a 12X12 inch page, but chickened out in sending it in... here is that page. I know I am a dork, what do you have to lose by e-mailing?? I learned, if I make something I will send it in!! I used a paper grocery sack, cardboard box, screen, toilet paper rolls & plastic sacks. The quote on the page says "The history of our grandparents is remembered not with rose petals but in the laughter and tears of their children and their children's children. It is into that the lives of grandparents have gone. It is in us that their history becomes a future."

Thanks for looking :) I will try to post more of my scrapworks.

Ok, so I am having a hard time picturing the CHA book, I know I know, I just can't picture it, so you will have to show me in real life, but what I can see looks great. Gramma Mildred page is very sweet and using recycled things...America...Candi's got talent ;-)
