Something....Blog Hop DAY 2

Good morning crafty friends!

Happy Sunday! Welcome to day two of our first blog hop of 2012! We are super excited because this hop is over TWO DAYS....yesterday was day one and today is day two! Each day features different designers! Our theme was chosen by Yolie, one of our designers. She went with....
This means each designer was tasked with using: Something Old, New, Borrowed and Blue. This was a FUN one to do.

Here is my project

My Something Old:The patterned paper is AT LEAST 3years old!!!!
My Something new: My squirrel cutting file is a new one.
