MCT ~ Scrapping The Little Things

Happy Earth Day! I hope everyone had a wonderful weekend! We did except it was cold and we had some snow flurries here! Crazy right??? It was cold enough here that I actually made a pot of chili! Just a few days earlier it was 80 degrees! Western Pa weather is something else!
Anyway today is "Scrapping The Little Things" over at My Creative Time with Emma and the design team. Since it is Earth Day we decided to use something recycled on our pages. I decided to use a pair of old jeans of my sons and some chip board for my layout.  I LOVE Emma's new " Stitched Journal Die" and "Journal It Stamp Set" .  I love the fact that Emma's "new" stamps and dies work so PERFECTLY with her older stamps and dies! I will list all the other details below my picture, it is so much easier to do and less time for you all to read! I also will announce my winners from my guest Design spot over at Joy's blog, Obsessed With Scrapbooking, as well!
Materials Used:
My Creative Time ~ "Journal It" ~ stamp for journal
My Creative Time ~ "Stitched Journal Die" ~ die
My Creative Time ~ "Just Simply Live" ~ numbers for year on journal
My Creative Time ~ "Stitched Mini Frame & Arrow Dies" ~ arrow on journal
My Creative Time ~ "Life Is Good" ~ "All Boy" sentiment
My Creative Time ~ "Vintage Stitched Label Dies" ~ label die with "All Boy" sentiment
My Creative Time ~  "Build A Banner Kit" ~ banner
My Creative Time ~ "Lowercase Fun Dies" ~ alpha letters
My Creative Time ~ "Stitched "Capture" Frame with Arrow Die" ~ arrow leading to tag
