Challenge #48 Midway: Ring Out the Old, Ring in the New

Hello and welcome to the midway point for
Scribbles Designs Challenge #48
Ring out the Old, Ring in the New

Before we get on with today's midway, from all of us here at Scribbles Designs, we wish you a very Happy New Year. May this year be a prosperous and healthy one for you all!!!

Now back to our midway. Here is a refresher of what the theme is all about:

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. It is time to bid adieu to 2016 and welcome the possibilities in store for 2017!

There are still two weeks left in the challenge and we hope that you will be able to join us here on our spot in blog-land. We have had just four entries so far this month so we'd really love to see some more of you join in!
