ETeam Picks Challenge - Recycling!

SO much fun here today!!  Come and play with our ETeam Challenge!! 

The eTeam Picks Challenge is held on the third Thursday of each month and each challenge is an opportunity for you to be inspired by one of our eTeam’s creations and to be entered into our challenge prize drawing! 

The eTeam Picks Challenge is all about inspiration and having fun! During each challenge one of the eTeam members will share a topic, word, technique, sketch, or product that will become the foundation for your creation. This challenge is all about mixing it up and just enjoying the creative process of feel free to share a journal page, card, scrapbook project, mini album….Anything goes! We want to see your work and hear about your inspiration!

All of those who play along with our challenge will be entered into a prize drawing for a $15.00 gift certificate to the eclectic Paperie store.

Here is my Recycled Project . . . a Starbucks Frappachino Bottle! 
Over the weekend my friend gave out apple cider in these cute bottles at an event!  She had been saving up the used frappacino bottles and now I have turned into a vase or a pencil holder!!  It has actually been recycled twice now - love!

I painted the inside with teal paint.  I watercolored a cute little scene, cut it out and glued it on!   This was so much fun and I LOVE recycling and repurposing!!  

And down here in Georgia, we have beautiful flowering plants called Camillias.  I love them! We have red ones, pink ones .... honestly,  tons of beautiful flowers in the middle of fall and winter.  So lucky! 

Your turn now . . . find something to recycle and come on over to the Eclectic Paperie Blog and play with us!!
