Ribbon Wave and Serendipity Crop

Ribbon Rave Week # 2! Check it out here.

This is my layout for this week's challenge based on this sketch. Our challenge was to use the sketch as inspiration and make ribbon flowers....here is my take:


Papers are Websters's Pages Lullaby lane. I gathered my lace and trim with a string and then adhered them in the Tattered Angels Chipboard frames...then I finished each one off with a button.


Next Up is my layout for my Challenge over at Serendipity Scrapbooks!!! The crop is the Sweet Taste of Serendipity {YUM!} so my challenge is based on Sandra Lee's Semi-Homemade show. I call it Ellen Marie's Semi-Homemade Layout challenge. {that is my middle name and it just happens to rhyme!} For this challenge., you need to have have 85% of your layout homemade which means homemade embellishments {the paper flowers, leaves, scraps at the top of the page, I cut out a journal spot, lots of hand cutting and I sanded my Core'dinations embossed cardstock...OH and the little die-cut shapes behind the photos are hand cut, too } So basically....just take what you have, make it your own and incorporate it into a layout.


Papers are Webster's Pages Seaside Retreat and Core'dinations Cosmo Cricket Core Impressions.
