Non-Scrapping Stuff on layouts - Frosted Designs

I'm the featured Designer this week at Frosted Designs.  Each week they are "spotlighting" a different member of the DT.
This week's challenge is to "use something from around the house" as an embellishment. Well, I jumped at this one because I'm always "upcycling". Whenever I'm "cleaning out" stuff that Joseph has "outgrown", I try to figure if I can use it somehow. Sometimes yes and sometimes I'm just!! Anyway, I use old puzzle pieces, games, books, anything that my imagination can turn into something on a page.

So, I'm actually going to show a couple projects this week:

This is using an old card game called PIT... (I photo'd the CORN card next to my layout so you can see how I altered it and used it on my layout).

And my husband brought home these flyers for some event because Joseph LOVES monkeys. So, I turned one into a bookmark for him by covering it with a little pp & punched cirles w/brad accents.

And on this one I used an old Kids Puzzle (one with those HUGE pieces)
