Mother's Day Hopping with RRR!

YAY!  Time for another Blog Hop with The fantastically talented Really Reasonable Ribbon Design Team!  I love this time of the month!  lol
If you came to my blog through Patti's blog, then you are on the right track!
If not, then you might want to consider starting t the beginning at the RRR blog and hopping all the way don't want to miss ANYTHING!
This month, Bonnie has masterfully put together an amazing assortment of hot pinks and blacks for the Monthly Ribbon Club Assortment.
Isn't it To DIE for!  Yes...My Daughters LOVED it!

Of course, I created my Bow of the Month with this magnificent combo!
I could not resist a big poofy pink and black hair bow! LOL

I did add in a few extra ribbons to make the bow complete.
The skulls were an obvious choice to add to this bow...Skye ADORED it!
Here is a side view of the bow...and it gives you an idea of how big and poofy it actually is!

An here is Skye wearing it.  YES...she has spray painted her hair hot pink to match!  LOL
I hope I have inspired you today to grab some ribbon and start creating!
Have a Magnificent Mother's Day!!!!

Blog Hopping with Quick Quotes!

We're excited to celebrate National Scrapbooking Day with our Quick Quotes friends and fans!  What better way than to have a fun blog hop!!!  During our hop you will see inspiration from all of the Design Team for our current blog challenge.  Please visit the blog for full details how to play along with our challenge.  This month we are featuring fussy cutting for the challenge and we are highlighting the AMAZING Powder Puff inks. Here is my sneak peek into my project.......

And.....Here is the hop sequence just in case you get lost along the way!

Now, in honor of Mother's Day, I decided to do a little layout of my kids...just for ME.
I used my absolute FAVORITE 1/2 page vellum piece that I have EVER gotten from Quick Quotes...
I think I bought this like 5 or 6 years ago at a convention and just couldn't ever quite figure out how I wanted to use it.  Well, I finally figured it out!
At first glance, this is a simple layout...

However, I took that simple one step further and I created a wall hanging by using a piece of 12x12 QQ canvas and attaching length of ribbon to to the top for it to hang by. 

This poem/quote by Patsy definitely tugs at my heart strings...and I found myself actually striving to do some of the things that she mentions...and more.
YES...we mailed Valentine cards to God once.  LOL..Just sayin'.  ;)
I used Mocha Mama, Tahiti, and Amaretto Powder Puff inks to create the distressed look on the edges of the page and the vellum.  I used a sponge applicator rather than applying directly from the ink pad.
AND I love to fussy know...I did lots of it!
Hope this layout inspires you today!
Thanks for visiting me!
