Scrappin' with Ribbon!

Good Morning Everyone!  
And Happy Thursday!!!  We are almost to the weekend!  YAY!
And..we are still in our "Summertime/Picnic" theme Guess what you get from me....
I did a summertime scrapbook layout with ribbon!

In this house...we love popsicles, 
we devour ice cream {Blue Bell}...
but when it comes down to it,
summertime treat is
Yeah Baby!!!
And with five kids, THIS Mama gets a boatload of fantastic photo ops! 
Here is "YUMMY".....

I used the loops on the die cut paper to my advantage...
I laced my red gingham ribbon through like shoe laces and tied it all up. 
Then, I weaved the green leaves through the loops to 
give it the feeling of a watermelon vine.  The larger yellow flowers are handmade.

For this layout, I used:
7/8 inch red gingham ribbon
lime green leaves ribbon
And all papers are from My Minds Eye.

I hear all the time that people do not know how to creatively use ribbon on their layouts...
well, I just showed you TWO creative ways!!
So...those of you who have a TON of ribbon but no idea what to do with it...
put it into your next layout!  
It is  a LOT of fun and a super easy way to add focal interest
without distracting the eye from the photos.

Oh...and OF COURSE I can't send you away
without a hair pretty!!!
I used that same watermelon theme with
7/8 inch red gingham ribbon with 1/4 apple green grosgrain
and I mounted it on a rectangular snap clip.

And here is my Gorgeous Model, Aubrie.  She is my 10 year old daughter
***who will be 11 in 3 weeks!!! AGH!***
She was very willing to not only model these clippies...
but asked could she have them!  
Ummmmm....Of course!
I think they look marvelous in her beautiful red hair...don't you?

Well, I hope I have given you some "Sweet Summertime" inspiration today!
I don't know about you all...
But I am ready for a nice big piece of Watermelon!!!!

Have a Fantabulous Day!!!
Thanks for Dropping by!
