PPPR "Go Green" blog hop

Welcome to the Pretty Paper, Pretty Ribbons' "Go Green" blog hop!!  You should have arrived at my blog after visiting the lovely Nanne.

 There is a special freebie file available for free only today and tomorrow (after that it can be purchased in the PPPR store).  The link to the freebie is on Lisa's blog.

Today's blog hop theme is "Go Green" and the design team will be sharing nature and conservation themed projects using Pretty Paper, Pretty Ribbons files.  For my project, I created a couple of posters to use at our soccer team fundraisers.  At least once a summer we are asked to do parking for a concert event and we often will sell water and soda at this event too.  We like to collect any empty bottles or cans because we can turn them in and collect money from them.  So, my signs will come in handy for the collection part of the event -

I do apologize for the poor quality of these pictures.  I tried shooting from so many different angles and in different places but it was tricky.  I also decided to laminate my recycle bins so that the posters would hold up longer and could be used more often.  To create my posters, I used the following files from the Pretty Paper, Pretty Ribbons' Store -

***There is blog candy for our hop today*** -
