SimonSayStampsChallenge 2

First of I would like to thank everyone who participated in our first Simon Says Stamps challenge we had over a hundred entries which is absolutely brilliant. Now to our latest challenge RECYCLING now us crafters are great at hoarding bits and pieces in case we might use them and if you like me they're in a safe place, bit and bobs off boxes, cards and anything that catches our eyes so where have I put them and why is it when I needed them I can't find them. I wandered round the house looking for something to recycling not helped by decluttering round the house lately even my DD has tidied her room and there's always bits of rubbish there. The only things I had is my son's CD collection, he's downloaded them on his PC and gave them to me to see if I would like any. A lightbulb went off just like in the cartoons how about recycling one of them and another lightbulb moment why don't I use Mum and Dad's Golden Wedding photos and put a disc with the rest of the photo's on.
Has you can see thats exactly what I did, using some BG papers and the Simon Says Stamp savour Sweet Cupcakes stamps. I used confetti like papers from BG for the top of the cupcakes they look just like sprinkles. I also used some gold embossing powder round the edges but of course the camera isn't picking that up.


So if you were lucky enough to get an Easter egg ( I didn't ) with a fab bit of ribbon, or that cute box you kept to alter, perhaps you kept some wrapping paper or even a topper of another card well nows the time to use them.
Since making this I've discovered several things I could use, I had some embellishments off some Christmas Crackers, some wallpaper samples and some odd bits of ribbon. Duh
