leslierahye's Earth Day Blog Hop | upcycled journals

Welcome back to my blog, your last stop on this awesome Earth Day Blog Hop celebrating upcycled crafting! I love all of the creativity and green-thinking done by my bloggy friends and family and I hope it inspires you as well to go green in your crafting. I have so many fun projects that I have been working on lately and I want to share with you a favorite...
This is a mini journal built completely from upcycled materials--lunch sacks and envelopes from junk mail and bills as well as a book paper. A week ago last Friday I created this little treasure on my leslierahye's crafty gig. I share with you the completed blank journal, ready for adding tangles and lists and art pages! I hope you enjoy. The replay is added in case you missed the show.

...and  now how to win my blog prize!!! Donna Salazar Designs created a great recycle stencil to match some of her fantastic GCD Fun & Funky Collection!!! Donna has generously donated these to be given away as a blog prize for this hop!! I'm so excited and can't thank Donna enough!!!
