This is my debut project.......

.....for my first week as a Prairie Fairy Design team member! I'm so pleased to be on this VERY talented team and can't wait for Fridays now!
Our very first challenge at Fairy Fun Fridays Challenge Blog, is 'RE-CYCLED'. This is always a challenge for me as I struggle to find anything to re-cycle with. It's not that I'm ultra green and don't have any packaging or stuff, it's more 'coz I can't 'see' the potential of castaway items. (Or at least I couldn't until now).

Here is my completed project, using that brilliant cartoon image 'Man O Man'.............
The DP is from the Capsule Collection by Papermania.


Here is how this pencil holder started out in life......

Well, almost.... I forgot to photograph the drum before I re-vamped it, so photographed a similar one.
(The actual one I used was an Aldi own brand). Luckily, this Bisto drum was in the cupoard! Doh! If I had a brain, I'd be dangerous!
I coloured my little man with Copics and framed him with Nestie scalloped dies.
Easy Peazy! He now sits on Hubby's desk.

I can't WAIT for you to see what the other fabulous DT members have created. Talk about CLEVER!!!
Please pop over to the Fairy Fun Fridays Challenge Blog and check them out! You'll be amazed...and delighted! Not forgetting that there's also a smashing prize on offer. Hop on over there where you'll find all the details.
Thanks for joining me on my debut posting.

What a cute image and you have coloured it fabulously. I'm going to have to quote you on "if I had a brain I'd be dangerous". That statement had me laughing out loud :D Have a fabulous weekend.
