Trash to Treasure

Thanks to Rebecca at the Blog Challenge Garden I will never look at a tissue box the same way. Her challenge for this week is to make a tag that is 90% recycled trash. My tag below on the right is all trash. I used trash from two different tissue boxes, the mint leaves and the word are from a chewing gum box and the odd looking tubular beads are from a broken necklace.  For the tag on the right the top of a tissue box made a great frame for this fairy image from Dezinworld. The flower gems are new but the little butterfly in the bottom corner was a discarded charm.

While there is some pink in the fairy tag I thought I'd share a picture of my little fairy princess (great granddaughter Lena) and Penny (my grandkitty) to celebrate Beverly's weekly Pink Saturday. 

I'm linking this post to:

  1. Oh how beautiful, Linda!!! And your great granddaughter is gorgeous!!! She is all dressed for Pink Saturday--how precious!!!


  2. Well Linda, you certainly have better trash than I do. Your tags are beautiful. And congratulations on your gorgeous Lena. I doubt that I will ever be a ggmother so I envy those who make it that far. I do remember my own ggmother who died in an auto wreck at age 70.

  3. Thanks for following my blog. Your tags are elegant. You are right about the kleenex boxes. I have been saving mine for ages. Your great granddaughter is beautiful and so aware. As for the cat, it is just keeping the seat warm. Wouldn't want to put Baby in a cold car seat, now would we??
    thanks again

  4. Happy Pink Saturday and Happy Fall Linda

    I am having a give away for one tag I made, in pink.
