LLWWC#48 - Upcycle It!

Hello, everyone! Cheryl here bringing you the latest and greatest challenge from La-La Land Crafts. First of all, a big "thank you" to everyone who played along last week. The entries were spectacular! This is my first time as the challenge hostess, so I racked my brain to think of something fun for a challenge this week. My DT compadres are awesome hostesses and always come up with super challenges, so the pressure was on ;D With that in mind (drumroll, please), I challenge you to "Upcycle It" this week! Take an ordinary object that would normally end up in the trash and turn it into something wonderful to use on your card creation. It might be a bottle cap, or a piece of colorful wrapping paper, or even an oddball earring without a mate. The possibilities are endless. Wait until you see what the Design Team has cooked up for inspiration!

I used Fairy Lala on my card and that means that she will be on sale for 20% off through next Tuesday. That's a sweet deal, so be sure to stop by the shop and pick her up.

Also, one player will WIN a $10 Credit towards any rubber stamps of your choice in the La-La Land Crafts Store!! And three of you will be awarded this TOP THREE award badge to proudly display on your blog!

Here's what you need to do to be eligible to win the PRIZE or Top Three badge:
  1. Create a NEW card/project for the challenge. You are more than welcome to combine challenges.
  2. Everyone is welcome to play, but to qualify for the Top Three badge and/or the prize your project MUST have a La-La Land Crafts stamp on it!! You are welcome to use any other stamps along with La-La Land Crafts images, such as sentiments, background, etc.
  3. Link your project to Mr. Linky below by Monday, JuLY 19th at 11:59pm PDT (GMT-8). Be sure to link directly to the blog or gallery post featuring your entry! If you post your card on Splitcoaststampers or any other online gallery, please use BOTH keywords LLLC and LLWWC48.
