BASB...Challenge #11

This time around the challenge is being hosted by the very lovely and very talented LaVerne . The challenge is: Something OLD something NEW, something BORROWED, something BLUE. Not necessarily in the true context of the saying. Interpret it any way you choose. For example, here is my LO:

Something OLD: that would be the silly photo of my son. It was taken a couple of years ago and I have been waiting for the perfect opportunity to scrap it. :-)

Something NEW: that would be the way I used the old rickety fence punch as a border around the picture. I just saw this technique used in the new issue of BHG Scrapbooks, etc. Loved this idea! :-)

Something BORROWED: that would be the idea for my LO from the LO below. This was a page I had ripped out and saved from an old issue of BHG Scrapbooks, etc. Love this magazine!! :-)

Something BLUE: that would be my favorite color, which I used a lot of on this LO!!! :-)

This is a really unique challenge. Come play along. LaVerne has a phenominal RAK for one lucky winner. No joke. You definately will want to check this out!! You can check it out here: BASB

I also wanted to share this LO:

I am always looking for fun, useful and unique ways to scrap my photos. This is a challenge that Davinie hosts every month on her blog. It is bascically to scrap about the prior month. A great way to use and display your 'project 365' photos. She also does a random prize drawing for all who play along. Very fun indeed!

So if you're looking for some fun challenges or maybe a little mojo, then definately check these challenges out. You'll be glad that you did!! :-)

Nice layouts and what a great idea to scrap about the month before. That would give a person alot to think about as far as implementing it in their LO.
