Town Hall Party.

The New Year brings a new challenge over at Sketch N Scrap our 'Inspired By' challenge has been replaced with 'Twistback Thursday'!
An oldie but goodie SNS sketch has been teamed up with a new twist.

To start off the challenge Lisa  has chosen this sketch from 2012 and her TWIST: Out with the old and in with the new in 2015: use something old that is a year or more old on your layout as well as something that is new.  

The SNS DT has been split into teams this year and although it was not my turn to create for this challenge I couldn't resist playing along.
This layout has me and hubby at a Christmas party that was held in Colchester Town Hall, such a splendid building with great photo props - I mean statues!! 

There is a great mix of old and new (to me) stash items on my page, these brads were part of a prize I received last Autumn but the grey paper is older than last year.

These wooden people were a perfect little addition to go with my photo's and I went through my scraps box and found the pink journal card and the pink chevron paper strip (the strips that come off the bottom of 12x12 papers - waste not!) The brads you can see in the background are at least five years old!

Now for those of you that are trying to use up your older stash before buying any new this challenge should help with your honorable endeavor by focusing on what you have that is more than a year old! So why not join us in our new challenge for 2015, this runs until the end of January.
More details and the rest of the DT inspiration can be found on the Sketch N Scrap blog HERE.
