BLOG HOPPIN' TIME!


Welcome to the July Edition of the Really Reasonable Ribbon Blog hop!
This month's Ribbon Club Assortment is FANTASTIC!
(But...aren't they ALWAYS!??  I think so!)
This is a super fun mix of vibrant pinks, oranges and yellows with a 
touch of green tossed in for good measure.  ;)
Doesn't this just SCREAM summer fun to you?  Me, too! 

Hopefully, as you hop along to each blog, you will get a ton of inspiration
 and ideas on what to do with such a gorgeous assortment of ribbons! 
Trust me...the ladies on this team have got UBER talent when it comes to ribbon! 
I wish I had a teaspoon of their creativity!!!!  
Here is the hop order for easy reference:
RRR Blog Hop Order
 Trudy 
 ME (Misty)
 Connie  
 Jeanne 
 Sarah  

Well, I gotta say...this month's bow was a bit of a challenge for me.  I wanted to do a new style that I haven't shown yet, but the sizes and styles of the ribbon presented me with a dilemma. 
I could not figure out how to use ALL of the ribbons on my bow...
BUT...I did use most of them!
I also tossed in the new
and 1/4 inch acid green grosgrain

Now...if you know me at all, you know that I ADORE Prima, so yes, to answer your question, that is a prima rose nestled all snug as a bug in the center of that bow! 
This bow will be perfect for adding just a touch of "dressy" to 
the otherwise NOT SO DRESSY 5 year old munchkin I have! LOL
Here she is wearing it...all falling out of her unbrushed hair!  :)  
I

I hope you enjoy the rest of the hop!
Before I send you on your way, though...
I want to share this with you...
Today is my oldest daughter's ELEVENTH birthday.

She is growing so fast.  Getting so beautiful.  And developing such an amazing Inner beauty, that I am proud to be able to call her my daughter.  
Actually... I am Blessed to be able to call her Daughter.
HAPPY BIRTHDAY, AUBRIE.  
In honor of her birthday, I am giving away one bow to one lucky commenter.
All you have to do is follow my blog and the RRR Blog ,
and leave me a comment on this post telling me 
who you know that would love a bow and why.
I will let Aubrie pick who wins and gets a bow for her birthday at the end of the hop.

Your net stop is at the super talented Connie's blog.
Have a great hop and a FANTABULOUS week!
Thanks for stopping by!

oH WOW!!!!! This is just the most beautiful bow ever!!! I will be a new follower-here and at RRR--I love their products!! I would love to win a bow for my daughter who is eight, and recently broke her elbow and wrist on a new playground in our area. She is planning on getting her hair cut next week,(I finally gave in-as she has only ever just had it trimmed) and is going to donate to an organization that uses the hair sent to them for children with cancer. With a bow this gorgeous -maybe she will finally let me do her hair all up!!
Happy Birthday Aubrie!

This is gorgeous Misty! Love the feathers in it too. i cannot believe your daughter is only 11 - don't you hate when they grow up? My 13 yo daughter looks 16 and i am not liking it at all - neither does my 17 yo daughter LOL.

Unfortunately, blogger is not letting me follow anyone - don't know why not - i cannot even see my own followers :( I am adding your blog to my list of blogs I wish i could follow though :)
