Happy Earth Day!!!

We live here, we depend on it, so why not have a day dedicated to it....HAPPY EARTH DAY!!!  Earth Day is all about celebrating and taking care of this beautiful planet that God has given us.  At If The Shoe Fits...Scrap It  we are dedicating this week's challenge to the Earth.  For the Fashionista Friday #75 we are recycling.

Put all your scrap materials to use! Scrap paper just lying around and anything else that could be reused. Examples - used cereal boxes, scrap ribbon pieces, etc... Think recycle! 

All of my family and friends know that I LOVEEEE Coca Cola!  Even though it gives me kidney stones, I love the stuff.  Cans aren't exactly environmentally friendly, so I decided to recyce my pop tabs and use them on a card:



I simply threaded my ribbon thru the tabs and used them as buckles:


Now it's your turn!  I know you can find something to recycle and use on a project...scraps of paper or ribbon, things from the environment!  Visit If The Shoe Fits and see the Design Teams darling creations and upload your projects today : )
