The latest Catered Crop recipe swap is up! With Earth Day on April 22 and National Arbor Day on April 25, it’s the perfect time to Think Green. Just make a project that includes the color green and come join our party at the Catered Crop.
For my project, I dug out a photo of of our sweet Summer was taken about a year ago. Although I have been pretty lax about scrapbooking the last few years, I really wanted to make sure I created a page with this photo for my daughter’s scrap book. We lost Summer, who was a member of our family for almost 15 years, in February so this page seemed especially important to me.
After finding some paper that used a lot of green in it, I used lots of various odds and ends that I found in my craft room. I mixed various stickers and die cuts from other projects to create this page.
As always, Linda has curated a fabulous Pinterest board to get our create mojo working. (Don’t you just love her boards?) You can go directly to Linda’s “Green”board by clicking on the photo below. (I was totally excited to see that one of my projects was on the board! Woo hoo! It makes me feel like a crafting celebrity.)
After being inspired, don’t forget to come back and link your “Green” project at the Catered Crop.
