I am a full-time working mum who works shifts with a son Richard aged 23 and a daughter Emma aged 21. I have been married to my lovely Husband Paul for 26 years. My passion in life, besides my family, is papercrafting, especially cardmaking, although I "dabble" in scrapbooking. I was introduced to Jewellery making in 2012 and found another addiction :) I have been cardmaking since 2006. I am also a bit of a tigger freak!

Arty Girlz Challenge #35

Hi,

This is my first go at recycling. It is for challenge #35 on Arty Girlz Blog.

The jar was a clear sweetie jar of my sons which came which small pieces of rock in bought by his grandparents from the seaside.

The papers are also recycled - left over bits from my friends house when we had a crafty day, with peel off borders ribbons and stamped image of "Charley" from Cuddly Buddly, coloured with pencils and blended with Sansodor and dress paper pieced.

Really pleased with the effect.
