Midway reminder: R for Recycling

Good morning, Miria  here with some more inspiration for the  theme 
 R for Recycling 
so we want you to recycle something, paper, buttons, ribbons, etc. and we'd like you to tell us what it is in your post. 

Fabby sponsors are:
The lovely Heidi at Simon Says Stamp are offering one lucky entrant
A $15 voucher to spend in her store
Simon Says Stamp



And now for some more fab samples from the DT:

Another 'tasteful' skirt
(Dusky pink mini-skirt this time. I dread to think how old this was!)

made into a little baggie.
I also recycled a ribbon from a very yummy box of chocs
and also the pink backing card was from an old office file divider.

And matching card, again using the old office folder divider
for the pink matt behind the image and die cut.

We celebrated our niece's confirmation
at the beginning of September.
And I brought home some parts of the table decorations. (I did ask!)
Recycled flowers, ribbon and the silver paper
from the placements cards.

I used a big matchbox


Helen - Wrapping Paper

What better to go with the toilet rolls than Poop!
