Use your Trash and Who Won?

Do you save all the little paper pieces left over from your creations?  I think it's a great idea, but sometimes I have to rethink my storage.  If I could solve that problem, I'd be THRILLED!  Awhile back I made a couple of scotty dog cards that used a very sweet doily.  Of course, I had saved the trash - I mean negative space, of course!  

I decided to put my hoarding - I mean saving - to good use.  The patterned paper is also a saved item.

I added some other things I had picked up in the infamous Michaels dollar bins including the butterflies and post it notes and I was in business.

Amazing, a card started with trash!

Now, who is the winner of my PaperHaus Magazine Blog Hop giveaway?

The winner is...(drumroll, please)...   Karen Ladd!!!!!!
