SDC30: Recycle - Using any stamps

Hi everyone!  Sorry I've been MIA for the last little bit; life took me away from my crafty world!  I can't believe it's already time for another Stampotique Challenge!  Did you check out the amazing entries from the last challenge?? Just unreal!!

This week, I'm excited to take a turn choosing the challenge theme.  Since we just celebrated Earth Day here with a big neighborhood cleanup (yep, purple rubber gloves and all!!), I thought I would challenge everyone to make use of items that might otherwise be destined for the landfill!  Re-use them or re-purpose them into a unique piece of art using stamps from any company! Play along for your chance to win a $30 Stampotique Originals gift certificate!

Here is my recycled creation!  The book pages are made from toilet paper rolls covered in patterned paper... a project we learned how to do in a local class.  I noticed that there are a gazillion tutorials on how to do this on-line!  It's actually quite addictive - and a fun way to recycle too! LOL!
