Fab 'n' Funky Challenge - Challenge #103 - "Recycle It. ... or even Them"

Hi Everybody,

Thank you all of you who completed the Fab 'n' Funky Blog Hop last week.  I had some lovely comments posted to my page, and I must thank each and everyone one of you for sparing the time for writing down you comments.  For all of you who were hopping around madly last week and also for joining in with our challenge it was great to see that everyone had so much energy in the New Year . . . !  

Well we have a few prize notifications to issue. Please look on the Fab 'n' Funky Challenge page to see how you go about claiming your prize.  This is just a quick look at all the Winners, so that you are just named.  All winners have been chosen by Random Org and are as follows: Barb, Catherine, Kiddo, Debbie, Rose, Aly, Cathy and Clare.

Well done all of you for Winning.

Now lets get on with this weeks Challenge.  This weeks challenge is to help you all get cleared up from all the recent celebrations and is called:

"Recycle It .
. . or even Them!"

We would like you to use something that you would of normally recycled (thrown away) in your project, for example, Christmas Tags (turn them over and use the white part), ribbon from presents, a gift box or bag, corrugated packaging, lining inside packaging, bubblewrap, a damaged Christmas decoration, Christmas paper etc . . . you get the idea . . . basically recycle something unwanted into something useful.

This week we are very lucky to be sponsored by two (2) different companies, so there will be two (2) lucky winners next week:

So I have been busy recycling away like The Wombles of Wimbledon and here is what I came up with using this weeks theme of Recycling, now my Recycled Item was, the Ribbon came off of one of our Christmas Crackers, the Bow was a Ribbon which needed to be tied with a Gold Tie from a Christmas present.  The Four Baubles (poking up from the flowers) came off of a Christmas Cracker.
