An "Earth-Friendly" Challenge

Hi eveyone! Today's Tuesday and you know what that means!!! A new DCRU Challenge! This week is one of my favorite yet, create an Earth Friendly Project. Let your imagination run away! You can use earthy papers, encorporate things from nature, or let your project have an earthy meaning. Whatever you think of, do it! There's no wrong answer.

This week the DT used the new Cosmo Cricket "Earth Love" line available at the DCRU Store. The paper, chipboard, and tags are just adorable. And here's a surprise, the entire Earth Love Collection is on sale this week through Saturday for 35% off regular price!!

Here's a little inspiration from the DT:

First up is the very talented and lovely Gwen. She did 2 projects this week and they are just beautiful. First up is a LO:



Recipe: American Crafts pps, die cuts and chip boards, Tim Holtz Distressing Ink, Studio G Rhinestones, Misc. fibers

Next is a super cute matchbook that Gwen made:





Recipe: AC Earth Love paper, SU Ivory Cardstock, Tim Holtz Distress Ink, Studio G Rhinestones, Misc. fibers, adhesive backed magnetic strip and sticker.

Wow, ladies! I think everyone did a brilliant job with their DT designs. Love how the papers look so good in so many ways. I'm so glad I purchased the mini deck. The patterns are all so much fun. Hope our talented followers enjoy making their own earthy projects. Can't wait to see what they do...I'm always suprised and impressed.

Smiles!
