Someone recently said something to me that I have been giving a lot of thought to. Although I don't have the words verbatim it was something along the lines of "how can you be so into going green and tree hugging when you are a scrapbooker?". Well I know all too well how much trash we create when we have leftovers that we do not use and I really do save just about every scrap that I can for reusual. I always use my punches to have a stash of little embellies to add to my pages. I also keep a cardboard box of nothing but bigger scraps so that I cut a 12x12 as little as I can. Many of us are like that...right?
You ARE making cards and tags with your leftovers YES?
Well here is my latest way of using some scraps...
In this pic below I wanted to cut out my daughter's snow day pic to a smaller size than it was printed so I actually kept that comment from above in my thoughts and created a frame to go around her pic using what would have become clutter. Like it? Saved the Earth a little, repurposed my acid free trashola, AND made for an interesting, albeit somewhat unusual frame :)
*Try* to keep our planet clean, beautiful and friendly, it's groovy!
