My Creative Time Challenge~Host Veronica!

Hi and welcome to MCT's new Challenge.  Every other Thursday MCT will be having a challenge hosted by a different DT member.  Veronica from VK Creates is this weeks host!  So for this challenge Veronica would like you to use something recycled in your project!

I decided to use a cereal and cracker box as my recycled material.  I have been dying to make a mini album for the longest time and have been so inspired by my fellow design team members Nancy and Shar's creations that I decided to give it a try!

So I turned this:

Into this!!

My first Mini!!! :)  

I used all MCT dies and stamps, except for a few little flower punches! 

The paper is all from an older MME 12X12 pack, Playful Posies, that I have had for a long time.  

Materials used:

3X3 Fancy Tri-fold Card
3X3 Fancy Envelope Die
Tag Dies
Polaroid Die 
Fun Pockets Dies
Build A Banner Dies
Stitched Heart Die
Flower Petal Dies
Teeny Tag Die

Just Simply Live
Cherish the Moment
Teeny Tag Greetings
100% Sweetness

Hemp Twine and Burlap from Liz's Paper Loft Boutique
