Prairie Fairy Fridays Week #18: Recycled Materials!

Happy Friday!

Welcome to my first Prairie Fairy Friday Challenge post! I was so delighted when Roberta asked me to join the Prairie Fairy team because all the images are just adorable.  This week's Prairie Fairy Friday Challenge is: Recycled! Here's my project using the box that my adhesives came in (yes I love ordering in bulk).  I cut it in half because it was way too tall. These sweet Norm 'n Helen Hippo images are just so cute!

Come join us at the Prairie Fairy Friday Challenge Blog to see the rest of the DT's amazing (and I mean AMAZING) creations and to join in on the challenge.  I hope the everyone has a fantastic weekend!
