SavvyNSassy Ribbon

so this was my last month getting my SavvyNSassy ribbon. I loved my time there! It is still hard to believe that was my first MB i ever joined. I remember signing up there b/c i was a my grandma's house. i know that sounds cheesey but since she is in a nursing home and doesn't really remember me, it means a lot to have that memory.

Holly has been doing a trivia over there everyday that is so fun. So i am going to share it with you {since it is the first one i ever got right, LOL}.

When this six-letter word is capitalized, it refers to a European country and language. When not capitalized, it means to make smooth or shiny. What is the word?

Can't wait to hear your guesses!

Here is a layout I made with the pompom trim SnS June kit. It was filled with such cool colors...yellows, browns and greys.

I also used a tag from Jennifer over at Creative Chaos. I was the June Guest Designer over there and she sent me a package of journaling tags! I used one on this layout, too. I added a fun little tag made from Core'dinations Cardstock that i ran through my Cuttlebug.

And here is a frame I did. It is based on a sketch from UA for their birthday celebration but I have always wanted to make those flag/kite things. I had this wood frame and I love to make frame stuff so i painted it red with some crackle medium and went to town....more SnS ricrac on there and another Creative Chaos journaling spot and more Core'dinations Cardstock.

Yay, I worked out the riddle too.
Both projects are stunning Ellen, I love how you used the string on the kite to wrap around the frame.

It looks amazing.

OK! You canNOT give riddles on your blog! My personality is such that I had to sit there until I figured it out! Polish! Once I racked my brain and figured it out, I allowed myself to move forward and view all your lovely eye candy! LOL! Amazing work, my friend!
