Tie a Yellow Ribbon Around...

For our Newest Challenge, hop to THIS POST to enter

(or orange, or green, or....) that old chipboard.... Ok, so you may be scratching your head about what I am talking about. Truth is I'm old! This is referring to a song from the 70's, and I am sure that most of you have never heard of Tony Orlando and Dawn or his famous song "Tie a Yellow Ribbon Around the Old Oak Tree"- let alone even born then!! Anyway, that's my set up for my post, and I'm sticking to it!

This week I tried again to think of a new way to use my ribbons on a layout. I decided it might be kind of different to tie it around my chipboard frames. I really like the way it turned out too. I also like the way the staggered ties look as well. I have to say I am having to push myself to come up with different and unique ways to use my ribbon. I'd hate for you guys to think I've gotten boring!!

For this layout I used my adorable, bright and fun Swiss Dot Ribbon Assortment pack from Really Reasonable Ribbon. Of course, there are plenty of fabulous ribbons in the store, and this idea would work on an elegant lo as well using lace... Again, I hope that you have been inspired!
