Hi there! I thought I'd do a LO for a change!


I've incorporated a number of these little cardstock clock faces - this one has a VERY old rub on flower topped with a button on it....I dug DEEP in my stash for these!!!


I've upcycled a bit of hessian [burlap] for behind my photo.....& I've got lots of metal - going for a 'girly grunge' look....the background on the right is black gesso, then heat embossed with a world map stamp....cos the photo of these girls was taken while they were travelling OS.

Upcycled bits of metal thingies...

& also button...the key has washi covered card stock, punched out in a heart shape that fitted. Bit of luck, that!

And my biggest recycled element...that crocheted doily up top & down bottom, that I've cut up! I really liked the 'net' quality it gave my page! You can see the other metal buttons like dot points for my journaling, bottom left, too:)

Can't wait to see what YOU create for this challenge...
Thanks for looking ~ & happy scrapping ~ Lizzy ♥♥♥

Ahhhhhhhhhhhhh!!! If this could be any cooler it would be an ice cube. Sorry for the terrible analogy, but I LOVE everything about this. All those metallic bits and bobs just pop right off the black background. GREAT work!
