National Scrapbook Day - Challenge #1

Yesterday was National Scrapbook Day and my all-time favorite on-line store (CropChocolate) was having an on-line crop.  The themes for the challenges had to do with their "marriage" to another great online store (Oh My Crafts).  Here's what the challenges were for yesterday (Saturday, May 4):

NSD Challenge #1: "Something Old" -  "Use your OLDEST scrapbook product to create a one of a kind project."

NSD Challenge #2: "Something New" -  "We’ve all bought something that we’ve never used before, and if you’re like me – it’s probably still sitting there waiting for you to use it. So break out that new product and get crafty with it!!!"

NSD Challenge #3: "Something Borrowed" - " Let’s celebrate the creativity of all of us!! I’m sure there’s a LO or project that someone else has done that’s totally caught your eye. “Borrow” it as inspiration and create your own! **Please try to use someone here at CC's work! You can search back through contests and profiles. :)**"

NSD Challenge #4: "Something Blue" - "There are SO many amazing shades of blue in the color spectrum. Incorporate 5 elements of blue into a project."

So far I have #1 completely finished and #2 & #3 almost done (just need to get pictures printed, but have to get a new ink cartridge first).

Here's what I did for NSD Challenge #1:

"Splash" by EP
"Lime Twist" twine by MME
Making Memories Alpha rub-on (2011)
