My Fat Ribbon Entry..

Over on "Stampin When I Can", Allison is having a "Fat Ribbon Contest" of sorts! I usually can't think of something or just don't have time to play but, I got to this time! We had to use a "fat ribbon" - hence the name! LOL! Here is my entry;



I used a couple of neat things in this layout, cute kids picture (he he he!) and I had to try some of the flowers I had just laying around (okay really they were neatly bottled up but begging to be used!), buttons, rhinestones (blue flower centers) but can you see those little tiny circle mirrors, the ones in the middle of the bigger flowers?! Cool huh?! Got those from Starbucks! Yep! Sure did! Timing was perfect last year and I went to one just as they were taking down their holiday decorations - I acquired as many as I could! LOL! I got lots of these mirrors off one of the wreaths to use in my projects! Okay, now back to the layout! Mandy had challenged us, last week, to use rub-ons in our cards well, I took it one step further and chose to use one on here! The scroll design at the bottom is a rub on from SU but, I only had one! So, what do I do? I take my white gel pen and copy it up top! Can you tell?! The really pretty fat ribbon was tied around a gift from a friend of mine - Chantal! I sure do miss her something fierce! She was the sweetest person to hang around, we had SO much in common! I hope she reads this so she knows how much I miss her and she calls me, writes me, something........ She was busy moving at EXACTLY the same time as us too! How weird is that for having stuff in common?!!

So anyway I hope you, and Allison, like my entry!

Until next time......

This is so soft and delicate as a layout (love those embellies!). And the frame around the pic is so pretty...super job! Thanks for playing!

Hi Michelle!

Those are some cute kids and I love this layout too. I was having a hard time figuring out this fat ribbon thing, but now I've got some more inspiration. TFS.
PS. Thanks for the HM...I'll post it later this weekend..back to school with the kids.
