CIG Earth Day Blog Hop… Day 3 (and a half)

Welcome Welcome Welcome!!!

Thanks for stopping by to check out Day 3 of the Earth Day Blog Hop.  If you just ended up here, make sure you go back to the beginning of the hop at Create It Green

Today’s layout I call 18… cause well there are 18 of us.  Back in the day (like a year ago), I was a professional residence hall live-in staff member and my job was to live in a dorm with 544 freshmen and supervise 16 RA’s.  This was my 5th staff but first at Chico State and I felt very LUCKY to get such a great group of RA’s. 


My “Green” element here is the brackets. 18.2 The brackets were actually part of packaging for some item I bought (can’t remember what cause it was a while ago) but I remember thinking “I could use these” and then threw them in my R&R (Recycled or Repurposed) drawer… that’s right I have a whole drawer of goodies.  Now I would like to point out that almost every thing with the exception of the base paper, the LUCKY bingo card, the rhinestones, and the paperclip around 18 were scraps from other projects.  I think it can be a fun challenge to use only leftovers to create something awesome.  I also think this goes right along with Earth Day in that I try to use everything I have and not waste even those little pieces of paper. 

REMEMBER… Here at A LITTLE DASH OF… I will be giving out a prize of my own!!! I will be drawing a name at random on Monday. To win, you just have to do two things… One be a follower and Two comment on my post!!! And because I will be having a new post every day, you can be entered up to FOUR times… that’s right I said FOUR!! The prize is a special GREEN kit full of vintage, recycled, and repurposed items that are sure to add some fun to any project. Check it out… I lost count at 70 items!!!!!!
