Lasting Memories Layout Challenge ~~ Wrapped up in ribbon!

This week at Lasting Memories our challenge is Anything Goes but you must show us ribbon on your layout! 

The entire DT got a little surprise in the mail to showcase our prize for this week, which is a huge pile of ribbons, sponsored by May Arts! Let me tell you they have some of the prettiest ribbons. You have to check out Lasting Memories DT inspiration tomorrow and see what everyone else did with their ribbon. I'm excited too, since nobody knows what everyone else got! ;)

My ribbon was a skinny velvet teal (soo cute!) So I used it on a page with my daughter eating her baby pureed peas (bleck!) I think it worked perfectly with the green and orange on my page. :)

The gingham green and orange paper and the solid-ish orange paper are DCWV  Baby Girl Stack, I don't have a good close up of the peapod paper but it is from Heidi Grace Designs called Love Sweet Pea. I cut a strip from it and punched the edge with my Apron Lace Fiskars punch. Same with the orange paper and I layered it underneath the peapod paper. My photomats are from my stash from an old DCWV mat stack.

Here is my May Arts ribbon! It is so soft and fuzzy!! ;) I love that it is skinny, so dainty for my little girl pages.

These GREEN alphas are from my stash that I have had literally forever! My sister bought this kit from a TV program and it came with a bazillion little packets of color coodinated little things. Included were buttons, chipboard squares, little one word chipboard tags, brads and these little alphas. In every color you can think of. These matched my ribbon perfectly so what better way than to use my stash ;) The challenge at scrapbookers anonymous is G and you must always use your stash so I am entering this in their challenge since I used these GREEN alphas, buttons, and photo mats from my old STASH!

Sweet Pea is a K&Company rub on onto paper by DCWV Nana's Nursery. I fussy cut it out, doodled around it, and popped it up. LOL I love how you can see the peas dripping from Kenzie's mouth in this pic ;p

The GREEN buttons were from my button stash jar, and I used some of my May Arts ribbon to adorn these cute little heart buttons as well.

My banner is made from 3 different patterned papers from DCWV Nana's Nursery mat stack and I fussy cut out each flag and doodled on them. I strung them up with Honey dew twine from the twinery and curled up the edges a little bit. Lastly, I stuck a fabric MS heart sticker on the middle one :)

The challenge over at Fantabulous Cricut is to use a funny pun on your layout, and since I did not use a cricut cut I can't enter in their challenge but I am still crediting them with the inspiration for this page! My pun (in case you don't get it right away ;)) is my title and paper says "Sweet Pea" and she just so happens to be eating peas! Get it?? Do ya!? Do ya?! Hehe ;P Okay not that funny but I though it was a cute little pun.

Our prize this week as I mentioned above is some May Arts Ribbons!

So get your ribbon-loving butts over to Lasting Memories and enter in our challenge! You know you're going to use it anyways, you might as well have a chance to win some more! :)
