This month's Ribbon Club Assortment is Magnificent!
Packed with Lime greens, Black, Orange and a touch of purple,
this is a fantastic assortment that is PERFECT for your Halloween projects!

So, this month, I decided to make a Halloween bow for my daughter. (Surprised? LOL)
For my  "Bow of the Month", I decided to use EVERY ribbon at least once.  
It was a challenge at first trying to decide how to place each ribbon.  As I was contemplating placement, I had a light bulb moment!
I decided to make spikes and spirals using ALL of the ribbons and then throw it together and see how it comes out.
Well, It came out GREAT!
I added in a little bit of lavender and purple ribbon and some lavender boa feathers.

I wanted to hide it from Skye and surprise her with it and a super cute Halloween outfit, but then, WHO would have modeled it for us????

Now, This bow was SO easy to make, that I put together a little tutorial for it!
Make sure you check that out tomorrow!

Puppy Love....

Is certainly the sweetest kind of love for any little girl!
I captured this super sweet photo of my littlest and her puppy one day after she came home from school.
Ever since school started back again, poor Chewy has been going through withdrawls!
Seriously!  He paces the hallway, barks at closed bedroom doors, and whines and whimpers as he lays in front of the door waiting for the kids to return home.
Each day, when the kids get home, he is over come with joy, wagging his whole body and bouncing all around.   I can actually SEE his smile!

Head on over to the Really Reasonable Ribbon Blog to see what all I used in this layout.

Thank you for stopping by!  
I hope you all have a Fantastic Holiday weekend!
