UYS Ribbon Challenge!!!

I don't know about you, but I have yards and yards of beautiful ribbon. I have some stuffed in glass jars, some rolled up neatly in floss organizers and some still on the rolls and don't have a clue how to use it on my layouts. Cards - sure, no problem! Layouts - not so sure! And just my luck the stash item for this month over at UYS is RIBBON! (roll eyes) After trying to come up with an idea for almost a month I finally broke down and searched the web for some ideas when I ran across this tutorial on Candice Carpenter's typepad for making ribbon flowers.....finally, I had a starting point and this is what I came up with! It's by no means one of my favorite layouts but it's growing on me! Oh, and the little girl with the scraped nose - is my great niece, Annaleigha!

Deets: Lots and lots of ribbon, craft supply. Stamps: Birds Galore and Expressions, Inkadinkado. Buttons: Autumn Leaves. Bling: Heidi Swapp. Rub-on: Basic Grey.

Now be sure to head on over to the Use Your Stash blog and see how the rest of the DT used ribbon this month! While you're there check out the prize - a one year subscription to Ready, Set, Create Ezine!!! How cool is that! Please remember, that all layouts must be new and linked to the blog by February 20th!

Love this layout! I am working on one of my granddaughter and was thinking of putting some of these flowers on it too. Last summer at the SU convention, they showed us how to make these. I looked at the tutorial you shared and it's exactly like they showed us. Cute kid too!
