Something Old, Something New, Something Borrowed, Something Blue

Since June is a traditional month for weddings, this month's challenge at The Craft Garden is incorporating the rhyme, "Something Old, Something New, Something Borrowed, Something Blue". What a fun challenge, here's the layout I've created:

 And I based it on this lovely sketch from The Studio Challenges:

Yup, I used to be in the High School Marching Band! I was sadly not all that musically talented, but really, really, really wanted to be in band! So, I played the cymbals!! For this layout I dug up a group photo from a night during band camp (picture circa 1991=SOMETHING OLD) and layered on top of a jumbo star I cut from a sheet in an old teacher's grade book (SOMETHING OLD #2). You can see my SOMETHING BLUE in the papers and strip of fabric. My SOMETHING NEW items are the Thickers for the title and the PP.

I also incorporated a few other challenges in this layout, as I always love to do. The layout is a pic from my SUMMER at band camp for Penny's Paper-Crafty Challenge Blog. I have used 3+ EMBELLISHMENTS for the V is Variety challenge at The ABC Challenge. The teeny tiny little musical note butterfly on the flower is for the THINGS WITH WINGS challenge at All Sorts Challenge Blog). My photo is matted on a piece of RECYCLED CARDBOARD, and I've used acrylic PAINT on my tag for the challenge at City Crafter Challenge Blog.

Now don't forget to get in on the "Something Old, Something New, Something Borrowed, Something Blue" action! Share your creation by linking up your project at The Craft Garden this month! =) T
