Scrapbookers Anonymous November Challenge

Yeah... I know you all haven't heard anything from me in awhile.  But I hope to be back visiting all of you now that Halloween is over, and what a relief that it is that it is over.  Halloween never use to be such a busy holiday...prior to kids.

Well our November challenge has been posted over at Scrapbookers Anonymous.  This month we're asking you to use 7 different ribbons on your layout.  Below is my layout and you might need a magnifying glass to see my ribbon.  I wrapped little bits of it around a Fancy Pants acrylic heart.  At first my plan was to cover some chipboard with ribbon, well as I was going through my chipboard I found the acrylic pack so I decided to cover the heart instead and while covering the heart I realized I liked the look of it not being completely covered so I got my 7 different ribbons on there and stopped.   I didn't even make a dent in my stash but I used up some little left over pieces!
Now to the layout, all the paper is Fancy Pants Sweetly Smitten.  The flowers are Basic Grey Blooomers and the alphas are a little mix different Thickers.  This layout was inspired by Debbie's Vintage Photo Challenge over at Yvonne's blog.  Debbie creates such beautiful layouts and she has a gift when it comes to vintage photos.  And I had the perfect vintage photo to use, as two of the kids in the photo above are my parents.  My dad and his brother were visiting some family that lived across the street from my mom's family.  The kids in this photo are my dad and his brother and my mom and some of her siblings.  The little one on the bottom right is my mom and the little boy next to her is my dad so how cool is this photo?!!

Stop on over at Scrapbookers Anonymous to see what our fabulous DT did with the ribbon challenge.  And  Debbie's Vintage Photo Challenge is still open so you should go check that out as well!!!

Thanks for looking!!! :)

What a clever and great idea to wrap the ribbon around the acrylic heart. That way you didn't use up so much ribbon. I used a ton on my layout! Duh! Absolutely beautiful layout!
