Something Old, Something New, Something borrowed, something blue.

Welcome to Day one of PaperCraftingWorld.com and CookingWithCricut.com’s first Blog Hop of 2012! Our theme is: “Something Old, Something New, Something Borrowed, Something Blue!”

If you have arrived here from Charlotte’s blog www.alittlebitofdetail.blogspot.com  you’re in the right place! If you’re joining us mid-hop, head on over to see Melin at www.CookingWithCricut.com and start at the beginning so you don’t miss any of the wonderful projects the Designers have created!

Our Designers had to use something old from their craft stash, something new (a recent purchase or new technique), something borrowed (an element from a Cricut cut or from a PaperCraftingWorld.com cutting file or digi stamp) and of course, something blue.

Here is what I came up with . . .
This is my layout of my son when he was 8 years old.  We bought him his first puppy, Jazmine.  I was blessed to have a mom that watched him during the day while I was at work (this was in the summer time) and Jazzy went every where with my son, as you can see, they even took naps together LOL.
Something old - my sons pictures (he is now 22)
Something New - I used my new cricut cartridge Kates ABC's for the title
Something borrowed - I borrowed the dog and the dog tag from Four legged friends cricut cartridge
Something blue - my title and the blue in the patterned paper.

I used K Andrews "Positve thoughts" stamp set for the saying in the dog tag which is "Life is grand".
I have to say this stamp set is awesome, it is a set that I reach for all the time. 

For my blog candy, I am giving away a set of K Andrews "Positive Thoughts" stamp set.  All you need to do is leave a comment, become a follower, and go visit K Andrew store and let me know which stamp set is your favorite.

Now head on over to Jill’s blog, www.jaihartjustlovelydesigns.blogspot.com and see what she’s created!

Make sure you check in tomorrow at CookingWithCricut.com and see what the Day Two Designers have cooked up! Thanks for stopping by and hopping with us!

Like the layout. Teddy my mixed breed Hound that thinks he is part Cougar says woof. The dog, Sasha, we had when my daughter was born & was younger has since gone to doggie heaven. Sasha was so good with my daughter and I considered Sasha my first baby. I still miss her.
