Just Some Lines Design Team Challenge

Good Morning!

We have a busy weekend planned.  I just wish our plans were more fun.  We are painting our living room!  YUCK!  I do not understand how a person that loves crafts and crafting as much as I do can hate painting walls so much!  I have to admit, I am terrible!  I am messy, paint goes everywhere.  I tried to talk my husband into hiring someone to do it this time but once we took everything off the walls and spackled, he said we might as well go ahead and paint.  I hope you have much better plans for the weekend.

I hope some of your plans include stopping by Just Some Lines and entering their new challenge....Reduce, Reuse, Recycle.  Doesn't that sound like a fun challenge?  Here is my project.

Can you tell what this is?  I will give you a hint...I did all three in this project..I reduced...I reused...and I recycled...

It is a lunch bag album.  I sewed three lunch bags together.  Then added 12 pieces of 5x5" paper "scraps" and lots of ribbon "scraps" and I have this cute little album that I can give as a birthday gift.  The digital stamp on the front and the sentiment are from the Just Some Lines Shop Birthday Penguin

This is what it looks like inside  I reduced my ribbon stash and I reduced my paper stash, I reused some paper bags and guess I recycled because I didn't throw any of this away.  Thank you so much for stopping by today.  If you are near-by, please stop by and help me paint! lol!  If not, stop by Just Some Lines you won't want to miss seeing the rest of the Design Teams Projects and if you would like to play along, there is a FREE digital stamp called Tea Party just waiting for you there.  I hope you will play along.   I appreciate all of your comments.

    1. We have lived in our house for 29 years and I think it is because neither of us can think about what we have stored in our attic & basement. It is easier just to stay here!
