Really Reasonable Ribbon April Blog Hop with our guest The Rubber Cafe


Hello everyone and welcome to another amazing Blog Hop here at the Really Reasonable Ribbon's Ramblings Blog!  This month we are pleased to have the very talented design team from The Rubber Cafe joining us.  You will see fabulous projects today using ribbon and trims from Really Reasonable Ribbon and stamps from The Rubber Cafe
If you are visiting us for the first time today, welcome!  We'd love to have you become one of our followers and stop back often.

For all of our challenge lovers, be sure to stop back on the 15th when we post our next RRR Challenge. New challenges are posted on the 1st and 15th of each month. We would love to have you join in.

Today you will see some great projects from the RRR design team using the   April Ribbon Club Assortment.  The design team from The Rubber Cafe selected ribbon and trims of their choice from Really Reasonable Ribbon to use in their projects. Everyone is using stamps of their choice from The Rubber Cafe.


Isn't this assortment great??  It contains 8 styles and a total of 16 yards.  If you aren't already a Ribbon Club member, why not join us today!  You will get a fun new ribbon assortment shipped automatically each month.

Now let's get hopping and see what our fabulous design teams have created this month!

Here is our blog hop list.  If you get lost along the way, hop on back here and we'll get you back on track.  Since there are a lot of stops this month, we will be changing over to direct links as soon as the hop is up and running. This way it will be easier if you want to finish the hop over the course of a couple of days.  We are leaving the April Blog Hop open for a full week so you have plenty of time to make your way though.

Now, be sure to leave some love at all the stops along the way. Your comments are most appreciated! There is also a great giveaway over at The Rubber Cafe Blog, so be sure to comment over there too so you are entered to win.

At the end of the hop, comment on this post answering the question below for a chance to win our April Ribbon Club assortment and the extra goodies shown below.

Our question of the month is:

What is the one food that can always derail your healthy eating game plan?
 
One?? Who am I kidding - I have several.  Chocolate chip cookies, chocolate cake, cheesecake........  Easter threw me off track a bit and now I have to get back on the wagon.  How about you?

Our winner will be selected from the numbered comments on this post on Friday, 4/20 using random.org. Be sure to check back on Friday evening to see if you are our lucky winner.

Thanks so much for hopping with us today. We hope you'll stop by and so some shopping at Really Reasonable Ribbon and The Rubber Cafe soon.

Just finished the hop! What a bunch of fabulous projects! Thanks so much for all the fabulous ribbon! I had a blast playing and hopping with all of you!

Denise said...

hmmm...so many yummy things that throw me off my healthy eating kicks...but my biggest one is a yummy glass of wine. I enjoy relaxing with a chilled glass of sauvignon blanc and that tosses me right out of healthy eating mode. Darn it! LOVED the blog hop and ribbon is a great weakness of mine!

Divinity said...

Dee in N.H. said...

Another awesome RRR hop!!! I always look forward to them! Extra fun today with The Rubber Cafe joining in! Thanks everyone!!!
My food that gets me every time is homemade Mac and Cheese with a nice cold glass of wine!! Yummmm, now I'm hungry!

Rosalee said...

Such a fun hop. My derail food is a McDouble from McDonald's. And plus I have a huge weakness for pop/soda. Can't go without the stuff.
Hugs, Rosalee

cathy said...

Potato chips are my biggest weakness...and french fries. Oh boy, you're making me hungry. Very pretty ribbon assortment this month.

lharnish said...

Any food with lots of carbs can be my downfall, even the healthy ones like rice LOL! I'm a carb-aholic :-) I enjoyed the blog hop. It would be awesome to win the prize, but if not, it was fun seeing everyone's creations!

AmyJ said...

The hop was a ton of fun. I loved all of the projects today. All these talented ladies really used your ribbon to the fullest and in the cutest ways. Thank you for hopping along with The Rubber Cafe. Answer to your Question. Well lets see I believe cheesecake its up there at #1. Hershey chocolate is there too. I have derailed myself and made a pact with my daughter to go walking every morning starting next Monday. Hopefully we can stick to it and get healthier. (Just a note I just realize that between typepad and google I am AmyJ and Amy Jones #8546. that way you know I am the same person.) Thanks again for the hop and the inspiration.

Caryn S said...

Wonderful hop! My one pitfall food? I'm eating them right now: Potato chips! I can substitute for almost any other food but nothing can take the place of my chips! Jackie is going to kill me with those Cadbury eggs, I haven't had one in ages but it's so hard to resist the after Easter sale!

Char said...

What a wonderful hop!! Amazing talent that never ceases to blow my mind!
I had just one problem leaving a comment on paperprincess82@aol.com blog. I tried to e-mail but AOL sent it back. Oh well, I tried :-)

Absolutely am LOVING the ribbon club....
My derailment food??? Cheesecake...can't bring it home or I'll cave!!

Regena said...

My derailment food??? Chocolate!! What a great hop...some amazing stuff!

efj said...

Ice cream has to be the one thing that stops me in my tracks! Thank you so much for an enjoyable day. This was my first hop but will not be my last. Great ideas, wonderful projects and new found products. Love your ribbon club idea, am joining today.

Nancy Kirkup said...

Great hop everyone, love your projects!! Anything chocolate does me in, every night around 8 I start craving it!! Oh sweet delicious chocolate why must you be so bad for me, lol???? Thanks for the chance to win! :)

Glamour said...

Thank you for this great hop. Lot of inspiration can be found. My weakness is peanut butter cup eggs...Yummy!

Becky Dunham said...

What a fabulous hop! I couldn't stop or stretch it out, had to look at everything today :) Gorgeous collection this month (as usual). Let me see... I have several things that derail me too - chocolate is a big one, but that is a given, so another one is donuts - just plain glazed donuts - they call me when I am in the store! I swear I hear them calling my name :)

christi said...

ahhhhhhhhhhhh, my weakness is bread. there is nothing like the inside of a freshly baked loaf of italian bread. the crust is great but the squishiness and warmth of the inside is best. especially if you roll it into a ball then make a cube out of it. i don't know why but that's how it tastes best to me. wonderful hop and as always love the ribbon!

Debbie said...

Wonderful blog hop! My weakness is definitely chocolate!!

Nancy said...

Great hop and lots of inspiration! My downfall is Breyers Heath ice cream!

Imogene said...

Laraine R said...

Great blog hop!! Everyone did a fabulous job!
Sweets are a major weakness for me!

Rebecca Mosher said...

Thats a lot of hopping, but great inspiration along the way!

Icecream always gets me. For some reason it never feels like "bad" food, and I can always justify it when I'm on a diet :)

Holly AKA KopyKat said...

Fried Chicken! lol. LOVE it. This was such a great blog hop I never wanted it to end. Fabulous design team, I'm all inspired.

Jacquie Southas said...

my weakness is carbs - have to stay away from breads or it is game over for healthy eating

Sherri said...

peanut m&m's my favorite and my weakness! great blog hop. great ribbon

Rhonda Miller said...

I would have to say cheesecake. I can never pass it up.

Nicole Doiron said...

Judy Rozema said...

What a beautiful and fun hop it was! So happy to be a part of RRR! And what a great prize, Bonnie! I just came by to answer your fun question -- it's brownies for me! Plain, no nuts, no frosting, just chewy delicious brownies! Have a great weekend!

pepper75 said...

I'm addicted to chocolate and can't stop myself, LOL. I learned some great techinques along the hop and saved some blogs as faves to return to for more great ideas. This was my first hop but not my last. :)

Sue D said...

I really enjoyed this inspiring blog hop! I love the many uses of the ribbon. I tried Dawn's blog 3 times and could not get on it. What really gets me off a healthy diet is DARK chocolate! Yum!

Thanks so much for all of the inspiration along the way of the hop! Cake is the one thing that I have a total weakness for and can't seem to say no too! I love just about any flavor and any kind of cake!

Scrappy Rat said...
