Happy Saturday Peeps!!!!
Today over at the Fab Basicgrey challenge Blog we have the challenge to use something recycled on your project!! Wow this one had me stumped!! he he!!! but at the eleventh hour it all came together!!
I have used the georgous Curio papers again!! I have coloured this sweet tilda in with my copics! distressed the edges with a combo of brushed cordroy, aged paper and a touch of broken china! the design around the edge has been stamped with memento rich cocoa! So my recycled stuff included the tag which was a piece of packing from one of my crafts parcels!! and the ribbon which believe it or not came wrapped around a towel bale!!!!
PROOF!!! he he!! I distressed the ribbon a little with the brushed cordroy to make it match better!! the flowers are prima!

MISSING!!! one MOJO... Reward for safe return!!!!

I Cannae do it!!!

Please forgive the Sucky photography!!!! pics were taken at night by demented woman!!!!! ROFL
As you can see colouring isn't the issue!! Lol!!! (And this isn't all!!) But I have spent the best part of the week staring at various papers in total confusion!! Now don't get me wrong, I can't even use the "I dont have any papers to match!!!" excuse!! That would be like Imelda Marcos claiming she didn't have any shoes!!!!! but here I sit..... bald patches growing!!!.... totally clueless!!!
So if you see my MOJO anywere!! Please tell it I love it and to come home!!!!
a one step away from the men in white coats
