A lot of crafters use specialized hosting sites that not all of us have access to. We just wanted to let you know that if we don't comment, it's because we don't have access - but we see your work here at LM and appreciate your taking the time to link up and show off your style!!
Happy New Years Eve my friends! What plans do you have for this evening? The last few years we've had a quiet evening at home with finger foods and some good movies.

Good morning friends!! We have a few things happening this week...first and foremost, since this is our last post with my current DT, I'd like to send a personal message to them:
I want to thank you all SO much for joining me on my first challenge blog adventure. You've all been super supportive and I've loved getting to know you. I wasn't sure about running a challenge blog as I know it's a huge commitment, but then I thought, what a great way to get working on those layouts!! So, I jumped in with both feet and ran my DT call. You've all stepped up to the plate and I've loved your work and I do hope you'll join us in the new year when you can!!! Don't be strangers!!
I also want to thank all of you who have joined us the last few months and inspired us with YOUR layouts as well. It's really neat seeing everyone's idea's on each challenge and I look forward to seeing more in the new year!!

Hello!! We're a little late today, but this time of year is just super busy! Thank you so much for joining us last week. It was really neat seeing how you recycled items from your craft rooms and to see the idea's out there. This week is a nice easy challenge.

Now onto this week's challenge which is "RECYCLE IT"! What the heck does that mean? Even I wondered that, since this was an idea given to me! So, what it means is this: look around and see all that ribbon, paper, even cards, buttons and doodad's you've collected over time? Recycle it on your layouts!! That's it!! Have a peek at what the DT came up with and be inspired to join us again this week. Can't wait to see your creations and what you recycle! Just link your layouts below before next Sat at 9pm EST to be considered for Top 3!!
