Stay Forever Young

Hi!  Time for another Disney page and a layout for Scrap Our Stash!

Echo Park That's My Boy collection

The challenge...

Here is what I used:
A - arrow, (chipboard) alphas
L - lime green, (sticker) letters
B - mini banner
U - upcycled coffee cozy
M - mist, Mickey punch
S - stars, striped paper

Most of the letters were pretty easy with the exception of U.  I fought this one until I looked up the defintion for upcycle.  This is what I found:

When you upcycle an item, you aren’t breaking down the materials. You may be refashioning it — like cutting a t-shirt into strips of yarn — but it’s still made of the same materials as when you started. Upcycling only requires your own creativity and elbow grease.
Upcycling is the process of converting old or discarded materials into something useful and often beautiful. When you upcycle you are giving an item a new purpose. 

After reading this, I decided that what I do with cardboard coffee cozies fits the description perfectly.  I had always thought that what I did was recycling, when in fact it is Upcycling!  And suddenly I had my U!!

Here is a close-up view...

I cut a thin strip of the coffee cozy, dabbed some paint on the ridges and then followed that with some Stickles.  Voila!

This page was inspired by Susan Stringfellow's sketch #121.  You can find her sketch and layout HERE on her blog, Sketch Savvy. 

Now come join us at Scrap Our Stash and show us what you can do with this word stash challenge.  Be sure to uplink so you can have a chance to win the monthly prize!!
