Celebrating Earth Day ~ Sponsored by Digisparkle

Hello Everyone! My name is Lisa from Our2Angelsinheaven and I am thrilled to be hosting our challenge this week. I am really excited because this week we have a prize to give out to one lucky "Sister" who participates in our challenge!!!!!!!!! From time to time we will have prizes offered up by our wonderful sponsors. This week we are honored to have Heather from DigiSparkle sponsoring our challenge.

She is offering up a voucher to spend in her store to one lucky winner. Her digi stamps are simply adorable and I can't wait to get my hands on one!

What do you need to do to win this fabulous prize???????? In honor of Earth Day I would like you to create any project using a recycled or altered item in your creation. Something that you would normally throw away. My husband thinks I am crazy when I save cans, boxes, cardboard...anything I can get my hands on. But when I make a little tool caddy out of a Rice box it just makes me smile!

So ladies put your creativity to the test this week and see what you can come up with and one lucky winner will get to go shopping at DigiSparkle and stock up on some adorable images!

For my take on the challenge this week I took a metal fence that is made to frame out your garden and a piece of cardboard that was laying on my floor from a package of curtain rods. Since I am redoing my craftroom I thought it would be fun to make a sign for my door and try to use some of my supplies up at the same time! I will post more pics and details on my blog (click on my name below if you are interested).

This is what I came up with:

That's what "The Sisterhood" is all about!!!! The winner will be announced on Tuesday. Good luck & have some fun!!
