Creative Belli Challenge #84 - Ribbon


Good Morning!  Today is Creative Belli Challenge Day and I am excited to be joining the very talented DT over there as a Guest DT Member today!  Creative Belli is all about using up some of those embellishments you have lying around.  You know, the ones we hoard.  Yep, we all do it.  A couple of years ago there was a phrase spreading around that said "She who dies, with the most supplies, WINS!!  I think we all took that a little too seriously, teehee.  We would love to have you join us as we encourage you to use up some of your stash and also offer up a little give-away as well!  So hop on over, check out all the inspirational projects by the DT, and play along!

The challenge today is "Ribbon".  Who doesn't have ribbon!  So no reason for you to not to play along!
I created a layout for this challenge.  No patterned paper here.  And look at all the ribbon I used out of my stash!  I wanted to do something a little different to inspire you so I used some fishing "thingy's".  You know, the kind you find in DH's tackle box.  They may be a little difficult to see, but they are the small black links connecting the ends of the ribbon (third from the top and fourth from the bottom).  Since the colors were black and pink I thought they worked out great.  Another great embellishment to use like this would be bracelet links or charms.  I hope you are insprired to think about a fun or unusual way to use ribbon today!
And in case you are wondering, that photo is from a VERY long time ago, 20 years.  This is my daughter and I.  She has become a fine young women who I am so proud of.  Thanks for letting me ramble!
I'll be back tomorrow!
