Don't Throw That Away Challenge Winner

We're back today to congratulate the winners of the Don't Throw That Away challenge that was all about re-purposing your packaging.  We also had an awesome sponsor last week and here is the winner of the random drawing for the $10 shopping spree at The Doodle Pantry.

Random CG winner is #9 Heidi Baks!

Congratulations Heidi!  Please contact Laurie from Doodle Pantry in the next 5 days at mentioning you are the winner of the OCC GC.

We'd like to sincerely thank Laurie for sponsoring our challenge with her generous gift, an amazing prize and fabulous images we, the design team, used for our creations. Be sure to visit Doodle and browse through the awesome selection of gorgeous digital stamps!

This week's Top Talent winner is Chelsea Le of Crafting Life's Pieces with her fabulous alteration of a Martha Stewart Boarder Punch packaging.

Chelsea used her lovely shabby chic style to create a beautiful container to store her flowers.  The design team loved her project and felt that it really exemplified what the package recycling challenge was all about.  It's a very clever use of something that would normally be tossed out and who wouldn't love to have this beauty decorating a shelf in their craft area and doubling as an organizer! Congratulations Chelsea. We'll be getting in touch with you very soon about being a guest designer for us for an upcoming challenge.

Our Talented Trio Awards this week go to the next three crafty recyclers.

We thought altering a Crisco container into a candy package was very ingenious - a simple yet such a sweet little gift.  It's a smart idea for something everyone has in their home.  

Another fun use for a container.  We loved the window she cut in the box and thought she did a gorgeous job embellishing it.  Beautiful job with all the extra details of the pearls, ribbons and flowers. The mini rosette is the perfect finishing touch!

What a beautiful tag Joni saved from the trash bin!  We loved that she let the tag take center stage while almost using her stamped image as an embellishment.  Beautiful colors and wonderful open space.  

Congratulations to all of our winners this week.  Ladies, please pick up your award badges from our side bar.  We hope you will proudly display them on your blog.

Don't forget about our current ATC challenge we have running.   Just a reminder that it's to make an ATC but that there are also color requirements that go along with this challenge.  You have until 11:59 on Friday, April 1st to play along with us this week.
