Something old, new, borrowed and blue

Here is my effort for the Something old, something new, something borrowed something blue challenge at Scrap Our Stash- its perfect for the wedding season coming up or for weddings gone by- including my wedding from 12 years ago- ( this is only the third Lo I've managed about it)

I decided to use the challenge name as the title of my LO- I started trying to use things on my LO that fitted as well but only got as far as old and new ( bits of paper) I didn't have anything to borrow and I didn't want to add anything blue to the LO but it did give me a chance to journal about my old, new,borrowed and blue things from my wedding

the journalling reads
My something old was a handkerchief that Joan was given as a wedding gift in 1946 when she married Dick and left for the US. She sent it back for me to use on my wedding day- I tucked it into my bra! My new was my dress, veil, shoes etc.. I borrowed some pearls from my Godmother Christine, my Mum's best friend and my something blue was a tiny ribbon flower that I sewed inside the hem of my dress - I was not a girl for garters. 27 March 1999 Sandridge
