Money Saving Monday and TPE challenge

Today's Money Saving Monday tip is: FREE IMAGES
You can find free images on packaging that you are throwing in the trash or recycling bin! I was about to throw away the box to these baby cereal bars (like Nutra-Grain bars) and I noticed that the cute little bee might fit in my circle punch. I tried it out and it worked! I combined this with this weeks TPE sketch challenge and it's very simple but I think it's also very cute. This one will be donated to ABC Women's Clinic. Thanks for looking!!

Wow amazing how you have managed to use a bit of some packaging and turn in to something so cool. Brilliant - I will be investigating the possibilities in my packaging more carefully from now on.
