New Method Playground Challenge!

The challenge this week was given by Cindy Tobey!
She is so talented, sweet and I love her work. She always gives something clever to see and her designs are beautiful and thoughtful!

The challenge that she gave was to include some kind of fibers on your project. I love to crochet, so this was very fun for me! I made some very fuzzy, yarn flowers and a scallop for the edge as well. I also used a scrap of Amy Butler fabric on there, it would have been thrown in the trash from a project that Laurel is working on if I hadn't saved it! It was a little recycling on my part, and the fact that it was the colors that I had made the flowers of was such a cool coincidence that I think that it was meant to be!
The CHF Challenge Chicks have a great challenge this week, it is to repurpose or recycle something in a project. They are linked to the left in my blog list, you should check them out, there are some very clever ideas for give throw-aways new life, totally inspiring!
It is also a sneak peek of the newest Scrapblock™ called "Daisy Chain" it is what I matted the pictures on! It is stamped in lettuce green Adirondack ink on the smooth side of Prism cardsstock.
A very fun layout, with lots of different things going on!
I really need help with the voting at Scrapbooks Etc. So even though it is a bit of a pain, if you would PLEASE (pretty please with a cherry on top!) vote for my layout, I would really be very grateful!!!
It is the one called "finding laurel" if you aren't sure.
Hope everyone is ready to enjoy the holiday weekend and to all of my Canadian peeps, Happy Canada day tomorrow!
