FF #28: Going GREEN!

Yes.....we are having ONE MORE green challenge here at the Shoe....but not the 'color'....the principle! But we'll get to that after we crown our newest 'shoe of the week'! This was TOUGH this week....took me forever to decide!!! I just love trees, they are all beautiful, and y'all made them beautiful!!! The shoe goes to....
I love the way Carol made a little scene, with the window, and the tree, and well, it is just stunning!!! Congrats Carol! Feel free to snag our Shoe of the Week badge for your blog!!!

And now for today's new I said earlier, we are going in recycled! Go find those hidden treasures you may have laying around and use em! Our DT seemed to all think alike this time around, as most of us have corrugated cardboard on our projects....but there are TONS of possibilities! ( old packaging, bottle caps, can tabs, etc...) Here are our recycled projects:
