2 challenges....

This is something I bought for 99 cents at Joanne. I added layers and layers of old and new thing, and here it is...


And I made this to hang in my craft room
and enter it for 2 challenges


is to create something using some old and some new stuff.
This blue lace flower is something so very old, I had it when I had sewing lesson some 20 years ago


And glittered letters are the newest addition to my craft room, they are from American Crafts just arrived at my doorstep early this week.


This is also for the challenge over at Simon Says Stamp and Show your Layers
I am sure with all these old and new things make lots of layers


See these lovely roses? From the lovely Ros Crawford of course..
and ya, she is the Guest Designer over at TSTR this week, hop over to give her some support and love, wont' you?


Not sure how old is the lace on the side, it was given to me 7 years ago from a friend in New York City, and it was from her stash she wants to clear to prepare to move to CA.


Alright, here's the link to the 2 challenges again
