#4 and #5

I'm beginning to find a little love for ribbon! I don't think it's something that I will use on every layout but I will definitely use it a lot more now.

Wednesday


For this page I made a big ribbon Christmas tree and then stitched "garland" over it. I do have a few strips of paper in the tree since I didn't have the right color of blue ribbon. I love the way the tree turned out. I get so excited when something transfers onto the page exactly like it was in my head.

Thursday


Here I tied ribbon around a few strips of paper. I couldn't get the green lace to stay in a knot so thankfully I happened to have a pin to hold it in place. I love those rare opportunities that I get to use flowers. I figured with this color combo I could use them without it looking to girlish.

Happy Friday! :)

*Also, I'm going to be including all comments for the week in the drawing so you don't have to scroll all the way down to the first post of the week. You can leave a comment on any post for this week and it will be eligible. :)

What a fun idea with the tree! It looks fabulous. I really like how you used the pin for the green lace knot, too. Pins are always hard for me to use.

Ali, I just love your work! How clever with the ribbon tree - that sweet boy - I has been fun to watch him in photos and layouts lately. He seems like he just wants his mom ;)

The Santa page is my favorite. I think many moms have a photo of a child crying with Santa. Like others, I love the tree. Keep up the work. I love your challenges, provides ideas for the rest of us.
