BLOG HOP!!

  **Please note that BLOGGER is having issues.  SOME posts will be up and some may not be.  If you can not get through the hop today, please come back again tonight or sometime soon and try again.  We will all have our blogs up and running ASAP.  Thank you for understanding!*


Hi everyone!  Welcome to the May edition of the Really Reasonable Ribbon Blog Hop!  If you have gotten to my blog from Andrea's beautiful blog, then you are on the RIGHT track!  When you leave my blog, then next person you will visit will be the magnificent Connie!

Now, this is my very first blog hop with Really Reasonable Ribbon, and I am so excited! I FELL. IN. LOVE. with the beautiful Ribbon Club collection for this month!  All those pinks and browns are to die for!   The problem with me is, though, I am not much of a card maker.  I know, I know....if I can scrap book, I can make a card.  I have heard it a thousand times.  But it is not so! LOL.  I can't make a card that I am happy with...so I just do not do it.

I DO, However, Make Bows.  LOTS of Bows.  BIG bows, Little Bows...skinny Bows, Fat Bows....I can make the bows!   This ribbon assortment was just begging to be made into a bow!  SO....I did what any respectable Mommy of 2 little girls would do...I made the bow!  LOL.  I actually used ALL 8 ribbons on this bow, too!  I also used a 70mm French Clip as you can see in the photo.




Isn't it GORGEOUS in her hair?!!  She even wanted to wear it! 
I didn't have to bribe her! LOL.
The sweetest thing, was when Chance, her 12 year old brother says to her...
"Aubrie, you actually look pretty with that."

AWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWW!  How sweet!  LOL

You can make smaller versions with smaller clips and less ribbon 
(I used almost all that came in the kit)
BUT, I wanted this bow to be big and "Bowtiful" because
she will be wearing it with her matching dress
to her Gifted & Talented showcase. I want Dressy, not casual.    :)

Thank you for visiting me today!  Please leave me a comment and let me know what you think of my bow!  Oh...I am considering making a "Bow a Month" using the Ribbon Club assortment every month...tell me if you would like that, or if you want to see something else from me.  :)

You next stop is magnificent Connie!  
Have a FANTABULOUS Day!!!!

What a beautiful bow. I can do cards and scrapbook and make small bows for them, but I can not compare to you in the bow department! Just be true to yourself and keep making beautiful bows for your girls- even if they don't appreciate them now, they will look back with fond memories that you made them. Just one more way to express your love!

How fab having a mum that makes such wonderful hair accessories , Ibet your daughters are the envy of all their peers like having your own personal designer. I think a monthy hair clip is a fab way to showcase the ribbons.Wish I still had my long hair.

Margaret said...

I'm so impressed and envious. I can't tie a bow to save my soul. This one is gorgeous and does look beautiful on you daughter.

Melissa said...

That bow is ab.so.lute.ly GORGEOUS. As the great-aunt to 5 little grandnieces, I really should attempt this. But I'm a "card" maker - not a "bow" maker. LOL
