KKS Challenge 121 - Recycle

Hello there my Krafty peeps. Today's Kraftin' Kimmie's Stamps Challenge is to Recycle. Sometimes I do find this challenging to do on a card, but in other craft projects...Not a problem.  I'm ALWAYS saving stuff that I think I can make use of.  I just collect my "treasures" in my cupboard and when I'm hit with some inspiration I go searching through what I've got and usually there's something in there that will work. lol

So for today's challenge I had seen an idea on Pinterest for making use of an old cookie sheet, and then I saw another idea for a weekly Menu Board.  I put the two together...and here's what I came up.

I didn't take pics while I was putting this together but I wanted to show that everything is made with magnets. So if you wanted to move things around,  change up the paper, add some colour to the cookie sheet, all those things are possible. Or you could simply use them as fridge magnets.

All put together we have this.

And a closer look at sweet Lulu.

And if you're wondering what my recycled part was... it is the little boxes.  They were soap boxes!!  
I covered them with some super cute paper that I picked up from Walmart. I made a drippy goo border using my MS punch, then added some ribbon that looked like it was made especially for Chef Lulu.

Thanks so much for stopping by. I know it was a long one this time but I hope you enjoyed my project. I find it helpful with making dinners for the week, and even grocery shopping to use a menu planner.

I absolutely love this! I normally put a menu plan on a piece of scrap paper on the fridge, but this is something else! I am going to try something similar very soon I hope, thank you so much for the inspiration!
