Challenge #48 - Ring Out the Old, Ring in the New

Scribbles Designs
Challenge #48
Ring out the Old, Ring in the New 

It has been quite a year!  Here on the challenge blog we've said goodbye to some DT Members and welcomed in new ones. Whatever our individual pathways in life, we have all probably experienced ups and downs, shared in good memories and sad ones, and thought about the changes that we'd like to make in the coming year ahead.  As we get ready to say goodbye to one year and usher in a new, we thought that this challenge would be a good time to reflect that same kind of thinking in our projects.  There is a great poem by Alfred Tennyson that says,

 “Ring out the old, ring in the new,
Ring, happy bells, across the snow:
The year is going, let him go;
Ring out the false, ring in the true.”

There are several key words in this poem that can help provide a starting point for your creation: ring, old, new, happy, bells, snow, year, false, true.  How you interpret them is up to you.  For example, you might choose to use something old or something new in your project; or be literal and include bells or snow; maybe you'll focus on the word happy and take your creation in that direction; or maybe you will design a card that reflects something new like new year's or a new baby, a new home, etc.  We look forward to seeing your creative take on this particular theme.  Just be sure to let us know the key words you went with from the poem and how it links to the theme.  Get ready to bid adieu to 2016 and get ready to welcome the possibilities in store for 2017!

And we thank you for spending some time here on our spot in blog-land. We're excited to showcase our talented women & their incredible creative work. We think that you will enjoy the Scribbles Designs images and the creative direction that ensues.
