Challenge #35

Are you familiar with:

Something old
Something new
Something borrowed 
Something blue

Its an old saying for a bride to be:
Here's an explanation on this website

However.... our challenge need not be about weddings....(your choice)
You need to show the four elements in the saying above in your project

 You could win:

25 euros voucher  which also includes postage

 Very big thank-you to Isabelle!


Can I hear some of  you thinking?
 "HOW do we create with  'borrowed' from the saying??"
Weeeell, our very clever talented dt have
come up with ideas to help you.  
 Here with their projects, we have listed their 'borrows.'
 Make sure you visit their blogs to learn what their three other elements are and any other details and photos!

Borrowed the idea from old fashioned 'paper dolls'

 Borrowed blue paint

Borrowed red coral from a friend

Borrowed  Anna Dabrowska technique from her workshop

Borrowed the box from her Mum

used words....check her blog for more detail!

Borrowed her mum's button box  (for the buttons)

Borrowed the fresh hydrangeas to dry

Borrowed ink and the butterfly punch from her sister

And our Sponsor and Guest Designer
Borrowed the little petshop bird from her girl

So you see......'borrowed' isnt so difficult!

Looking forward to seeing all four elements on your projects!!!
Lets get creatively Shabby!!!


Make a project exclusively for this challenge here at 'Let's Get Shabby' to be included as a Winner or Honorable Mention possibility.

Projects due by midnight 20th June Sydney Australia time
