recycling ...

Any of you who are card makers will know the copious amounts of recycling that gets done .... whether it is re using old scraps of paper, ribbon ends from new clothing, or old boxes to make templates, us crafters do seem to hang onto a lot of things 'just in case' !!!

The Colossal blog has brought a really interesting post that I wanted to share with your today .......  you can check out the post here ...

It is all about how Garth Britzman has used plastic bottles ... 

[Photos taken from the Colossal blog, May 2012]

and I love it! I am not sure whether its water proof, but it certainly looks amazing, and reminds me of the ceiling in the Bellagio casino in Las Vegas ....  I can't find my Las Vegas photos, but if you check out this link you will see what I mean!

Happy Sunday all! X


  1. Cool! Neato! Unbelievable!! Come by for a visit!

  2. That is so cool!!! Thanks for sharing the photos, Shelly! What a fantastic idea (though, like you said, the waterproof-ness is questionable). I LOVE the Bellagio too - and just Las Vegas in general!!! :-)

  3. Another Vegas fan :) wuhoo!!
