I love the idea of upcycling things we already have, especially combining it with digital scrapbooking to make hybrid projects. I have this washtub, an old metal one, that I picked up somewhere that I use from time to time, especially when planting flowers. I think it would be a great idea to create something for the side with digital scrapbooking skills and supplies, and to print it out, and adhere it to the tub.
