Something New

My girl Jojorenee (aka Mika) came up with the cutest challenge based on having a wedding. Here are the guidelines:

Something old, something new
Something borrowed, something blue
And a silver sixpence in her shoe.

A sixpence is a coin that was minted in Britain from 1551 to 1967. It was made of silver and worth six pennies. So this wedding tradition is definitely English, and many sources say that it began in the Victorian era.
Each item in this poem represents a good-luck token for the bride. If she carries all of them on her wedding
day, her marriage will be happy.

WEEK 1: Something Old - This week use papers or embellishments from your stash in a LO that is older than 3 years or dating back to when you first started scrapping.

WEEK 2:Something New - This week use something new! We should have our Scraproom kits for those who have joined. Or just any new papers you got in the last month- crazy shoppers you!!! So stop just smelling the paper and dive in an create something.

WEEK 3: Something Borrowed For this weeks challenge use something borrowed

WEEK 4: Something Blue This weeks challenge is to use a LO featuring all one color of your choice or if you like blue go right ahead!!

WEEK 5:And a silver sixpence in her shoe. Create a LO and include a shoe and/or something silver on it!!!!is

I am sooo far behind on this challenge because I am the slowest scrapper in the world but here is my something new layout based on a sketch from Creative Scrappers #108 and the Paper and chipboard butterflies came from the June Scrap-room kit - feel free to participate in this challenge, it's a fun one!
