Lasting Memories Challenge ~~ Trash your LOs!

This week over at Lasting Memories our challenge is to trash your layouts! Normally that would be a bad thing! But we want to see you use trash on your pages; Scraps, something you could recycle, or something you dug out of the garbage ;)

My layout is made up of completely all scraps, except the background paper, ribbon, and metal accent.
Here is my layout:
This is a picture of Kenzie when she was 2 weeks old and her 28 week 3d uldrasound. Just proves how accurate those machines are! And FYI that's what I'm majoring in ;)

All of my papers used came straight from my scrap bin and I recut and reused them.. I really like getting rid of my scraps :) The butterfly border is the negative strip from cutting the butterflies out of it, Great way to recycle!! :)

I found this ribbon in sooo many colors at a warehouse down in San Diego. Miss that warehouse..

Metal accent is Recollections, little stamps are recollections too

I used my new favorite embossing enamel on this doily, and I LOVE IT!! Oh it's so pretty in person! This little guy I cut out of scrap paper that had his picture all over it.

Here you can start to see the tiny bits of pink and white and gold flecks.. Oh I wish you could see it in person..

Did I mention I love this embossing enamel?? So pretty!!!!

Close up of my recycling and doodling

I used enamel accents for the dots on my butterflies and glued down only the middles so they could pop up and fly away ;)

Very pretty layout. Reusing scraps and other items just laying around is really a challenge. Plus its hard to stay away from using something pretty and new. :)

Love that you used the butterflies and the punched piece. That is a great idea. I also love the ribbon.
Now what is embossing enamel? I know what embossing powder is. I really like what you did to doily so would love to know.

Kimberly said...

ohhhh love that embossing enamel - you must share where you picked it up

Michele F. said...

okay... so my absolute favorite is the negative trip of punched out butterflies. Beautiful layout! And I am jealous that you are probably 1/2 of my age and you are majoring in ultrasound tech. Something I sooo wanted to do. Just didn't fit into my life's happenings. Good luck to you! I have a feeling you will be awesome at it!! :-)

Amy said...

Wonderful LO, Michelle!! I'm usually not a fan of those 3D ultrasound pictures, but I really like how you've paired it with a "real" picture too -- It makes it look much softer to me!! :) My friends always laugh at me when I line up my punches, but I see you and I both enjoy the "negative" border that it makes!! :)

Thanks so much for sharing your talent at Lasting Memories this week!! :)

Your Lasting Memories DT Sister,
