Boo! Reduce, Reuse, Recycle

Well, things have been busy this week! I made a huge pot of applesauce and shared it w/ friends, baked three more loaves of pumpkin chocolate chip bread, made two layouts, took the laptop in, got flu shot, went out to dinner, did some shopping, and played Canasta! I had to pull out my slacks and actually wore a sweatshirt today because I was chilly! YES!!! Come on cooler temperatures!

On Monday, DH and I ran a ton of errands. Some are mentioned above. In the evening, we went to the pumpkin patch so I could get some great photos. Below is a LO I did with one of the 30 photos I took, LOL! People driving by must have thought we were crazy. Usually, there are children all over with scrapping moms shooting photos - not two grown adults! We had fun! Here's the LO:

What do you think? I spent most of today working on the bear holding the pumpkin. DH loves how the bear looks. DH is such a cheerleader for me! I have to keep pinching myself! I have to use up some of the old PPs I have. These are from who knows when. I tried to give them a new look by using the Hambly rub ons.

Now, for your lesson - a "no brainer" for sure. See the word "BOO" at the top of the page? Looks like Heidi Swapp ghost alphas, huh? Wellllllllllllllllll, those alphas are NOT ghost alphas!!!

Reduce, Reuse, Recycle!!

Materials needed:

A plastic milk jug (rinsed clean)
A letter press like a Sizzix
Alphabet dies like Sizzix


1. Cut your jug. You'll be needing the flat parts.
2. Select your alpha die.
3. Place alpha die on plastic segment, insert, press, and removet!

There you go! YOU'VE JUST GONE GREEN! You took something that you would ordinarily throw out and use it in scrapbooking!!!

**Since I shared this, if you share it, would you please give me credit? I thought it up all by myself and am just tickled!** If the idea is out there already, I didn't know about it, LOL!!

Chris that layout is AMAZING!!! I love the hambly and how cool that you made the "boo" yourself! I might just have to lift that little idea.
And the bear is SO cute!

OMG, I just looked closer and the first time I thought your DH was hugging a real person. LOL!! And if I use the "boo" idea I promise to give you full credit! TFS!

WOW! This is so cool! I love the bear (I don't have enough patience for that) and the creative BOO letters!!! I have heard about that, but never seen it before. I am going to have to give this a try!

Chris this is the most adorable LO! That bear is just too precious and you absolutely must submit your milk cartoon boo for publication!! That's just too darn creative and LOL very politically correct!! ;)
