Earth Friendly Friday


Happy Friday AP Fans!
It's Natalie here,
and I have an Earth Friendly Friday
project to share with you.

 I've had this box of flowers in my stash for YEARS.....
know one day I'd want to turn the box into something
and my Earth Friendly Friday post was the perfect time.
it started out like this


can you believe this awesome box that flowers came in?!!

I left it the color it was to represent the sand in my 
"Ode to Lake Michigan" project.
 I wont bore you with details of the lake, just know you really should see it some day.  
I used some of my favorite Fresh Papers
and the awesome Cardstock stickers
(if you haven't tried the stickers you SO need to!)

here's a look at my 'Ode to Lake Michigan'





I hope you like my project today!


We also have a winner to announce from our "Enchanted" Giveaway earlier this week! 

I. Love. These. Colors!! Halloween is my favorite crafty holiday, so I can't wait to give these papers a go!

Congrats! Please send an email to contests@authentiquepaper.com with your mailing info and "Enchanted Giveaway Winner" in the subject line! 

Make sure you stop by the blog next week... if you're curious to know why... we might just have another little announcement & a giveaway!
