Lia Stampz Challenge #52 - Upcycle or Recycle Something

Hello again, my friends!

A new challenge has begun over at Lia Stampz, and it's "Upcycle or Recycle Something."

I have made two little projects for this challenge. I recently received a wonderful new thimble for my collection from my MIL. She gave it to me in this tiny little paper bag. You just know I had to keep the bag, right? I think I'll be using it for a pocket in a future mini album. I also had this little gift box ready to reuse. Both of these were the perfect size for this sweet Lia Stampz image called "Christmas Bunny." You can find it at Whimsy Stamps right HERE for a bargain price! 

Come on over to Lia Stampz and join in the fun challenge! :o)

  11. These images are so sweet. I do believe you are having a blast with digital images :D

    You have a very thoughtful MIL. Adding to your thimble collection. Giving you something that you enjoy and a remembrance of her gift as well.

    Love these two projects you have on this post. So bright and cheery.

    Love you my friend - Leslie
