ihp DT challenge

It's time for our i {heart} papers design team challenge.  This one is quite bittersweet, because we've been doing challenges from the very beginning, and this is our last one!  I thought it would be appropriate for the team to pick their favorites (you'll find the list of them at the bottom of this post).  Mine is actually a combination of several of my favorites from the list...I really LOVE this My Mind's Eye designer paper, so I combined the December 2009 MME challenge with 2010's March reduce/re-use/recycle challenge.  I reused some old wooden spools (inspired by these)...even the little spiral pins were reused from another project.  This is also today's Paper Craft Planet 3-D challenge.  I hope you'll join me!
