Li'l Dreamer...


You have probably all figured out by now that I am not much of a card maker. 
I make them...just  not often.
It is just not one of my favorite things to do.
I do, however, LOVE to make hair accessories, altered items and most especially...scrapbook layouts. 

For this layout, I used a sketch from My Creative Sketches.
Here is the sketch that I used:

Now...I LOVE to scrap with circles, but I was a little bit wary of the large strip behind the circle that is on a slant.  I was clueless as to what to do! 
UNTIL....
I saw my beautiful moss green leaf vine ribbon
I immediately thought of a rose trellis, and then I was scrappin'!
I created the trellis with my cricut and wove the vine through it.
I used the Estelle White crochet lace to run around the edge of the circle.
I wanted to create a light "airy" feel to this layout, so I kept with muted colors and only a few splashes of color.


Here is a close up of both trims that I used on this layout:

Next time you are stuck on a layout, take a peek into your ribbon stash!
It just might help your imagination wander!  
Ribbon is a PERFECT final touch to ANY project!

Thank you for visiting today!  
Have a Fantastic Week!!!
