Prima Ballerina!

I am always on the lookout for things that I can recycle in my scrapbooking.  We switched laundry soap last week and began to use an all in one soap & laundry sheet.  These go in the washing machine with the clothes and then directly into the dryer with them too.  They serve double duty. 

When I pulled them out of the dryer, I knew instantly that they would serve triple duty!  They are nice and thick and the perfect absorbing material for misting! 

The first thing I did was pull out my misting box and lay a couple of them flat on the bottom.  Using my mists, I saturated them in various colors:

I dried these with my heat gun (because I am a very impatient scrapper!).  Remember to keep your gun at a safe distance as the intense heat will start to melt the sheet.

Then I ran them through my Cuttlebug and made these:

I ended up using the back sides of the flowers for my design --- just really liked the variegated look of the back:

Love this layout too! I'm so glad I found your blog tonight :)

Ironically, even though my blog doesn't have much yet, just as I commented about the baseball pics, I have 7 dance layouts posted too! Maybe we can inpsire each other.
