Reduce, Reuse, Recycle | Jillibean Soup

Blog confession ... most days my blog posts at 5 am because I blogged in advance. Most likely the night before. I am blogging today in real time. I know total lame confession but sometimes I feel a little off blogging in advance, it seems phony. I have weird hang ups right.

I was thinking this morning about recycling. It's something we try to do a lot of around our house. I know we are no where near where we should be but I figure we do pretty good. I am sure if you are still reading this mornings ramblings you are wondering what this has to do with scrapbooking. I swear there was a point to all this. I used to think every layout had to be a new and fresh but then I stepped back and said why not recycle ideas I love. Today's project is a layout featuring Jillibean Soup and if it looks familiar it should it is almost a direct copy of a layout I did for Lily Bee called Normal Child. Check out the link to my original layout. 


(Supplies Used: Bazzill Cardstock, Jillibean Soup/Patterned Paper/Corrugated Paper/Stickers/Alphas/Twine/Silhouette Cut Files, Stampin Up Scallop Punch, Tim Holtz Tiny Attacher, My Minds Eye Enamel Dots, Silhouette Cutting System and various fonts downloaded from the internet) 


I often scraplift my own work but in the process the layout generally ends up morphing into something totally new. This layout is almost a direct copy of the first layout from the long title quote to the hearts to the banner ribbon cuts hanging from the main design block. So today I am going to say copy yourself and embrace it. Sometimes there is no reason to reinvent the wheel.

Happy crafting and go recycle some ideas!
