Scraps to Treasure Blog Hop - Day 2

What do you do with all those scraps? Do you discard them? Do you let your children get their creative juices flowing with them? This hop gives some creative ideas on what to do with all those scraps that are just taking up space in your scrap box, if you have a scrap box. I have one and here is it...
You should have just hopped from Lissa Marie's Blog  If you just joined our hop, please start with Robin's blog, our hostess. Otherwise continue on from here and don't forget to check our sponsor's: Shannon Leffew Keith and Ginger Snap Scraps.

To celebrate Father's Day, I used my scraps to make this Father's Day card for my father-in-law. The stamp is also a scrap in a sense, I bought it used from a friend. I love going to Goodwill and second hand stores looking for stamps to use. You can save a lot of money that way.
I wish I could have gotten a better picture of the pocket knife. I used two different colors of ink on it so it has a neat appearance to it. I took several pictures trying to get it to show but just couldn't.

Thanks for hopping again today and Happy Father's Day to all those great men in our lives that we consider fathers be it biological, adoptive, step or grandfather.

Hope you enjoyed looking at what I've been up to and now continue on to Cicily's blog.

Hugs from Jearise in Lorby's World.
