LLWWC#48 - Upcycle It!

Hello! It's time for our La La Weekly Wednesday Challenge! Cheryl is our hostess this week and she chose UPCYCLE IT as the theme. If there are anything you plan to put in the trash, don't! These might be some good stuff for your creation! Basically, you turn something you don't need, something ordinary into something unique for your project. It's recycle in other word! LOL

Cheryl used Fairy Lala on her card so she is 20% off this week! Check her out at our online store!


My creativities haven't been good to me lately. I couldn't come up with anything cool! :( Anyway, I had this tag from one of my Forever 21 top on my dresser for the longest and seriously, I need to clean my room! But a light bulb went on! This tag would look pretty cool on my LLLC card! So....

This is what I did with it! I had Sitting Pretty Rosie sitting on it! LOL Once again, I am using scraps on this card. Seriously, I am so sick of my big pile of scraps! What do you guys do with your scraps?

I followed the sketch of at The Sweet Stop. Well, the sketch with a spin, which is to include a tag somewhere. I got that! LOL

I colored Rosie with Copic. I used my white gel pen and added some dots on her dress.

Okie dokie, my friends. Hope you all can find some time and play along with us! For more inspiration, please check out my awesome teammates' stunning creations! Have a blessed day, everyone!

Kim, that tag is pretty awesome, so I can see why you used it on your card. Also, using all the scraps is great, too, and works perfectly with the challenge theme ;D Love how Rosie is colored up and the dots added to her dress make it that much more special!
