Lasting Memories #26

Hi again, busy scrappin' this morning!  Over at Lasting Memories they have a challenge going on that is due by 9pm tonight.  It is too reduce, reuse & recycle.

I thought and thought what in the heck could I do or use.  After some time I figured it out.  I took a project that my son had to do in kindergarten w/ his family.  We had to disguise Tom the Turkey, because he didn't want to be eaten. 
All the students did wonderful jobs disguising their turkeys, most of them did recycle or re-use an item. 
So we decided to turn Tom into the Easter Bunny, dad's idea!  We clipped out from a magazine rabbit ears, a basket and a carrot.  Below you'll see the side by side LO that I created w/ the photo's that we took and the disguised turkey, not only is the turkey disguised but Lucas wanted to disguise us too. 

We were able to use up some of my scraps as well during this project, so I may not have used scraps for the actual LO but the turkey is all re-used stuff, hope that counts.  If not I understand, it was fun creating the pages.

And on another note I stopped at a craft store yesterday and they had big clearance items.  I have a sad supply of flowers  :O(

I always want to use them, but I'm amazed at the cost of those jars of florals.  I will pick some up if I have a coupon or on clearance (which isn't often).  Odd but flowers are the only thing I'm cheap about, when it comes to scrapbooking goodies.
So with the big clearance sale I bought 3 containers and happy to see my stash has grown.  :O)
Just wanted to share, I'm going back to creating and I promise I won't post again until tomorrow.  Tee hee!  I've posted 4 times in the past 24 hours, that has to be a record for me. 

Hugs, AuniLeigh
