RRR Blog Hop- Crazy for Christmas

Hi Everyone and welcome to the October Blog hop with RRR.  We have a
fun hop for you this month to get started on Christmas with our new ribbon
assortment called "Crazy for Christmas".  It's gorgeous and there are so many pretty
 ribbons you are going to have lots of fun this year making special homemade things
 for your family and friends to give and decorate....  

So if you started the hop at the beginning you would be arriving here from
Karen's blog....  and---- i guess it's time to get started then :)

This project is for me to give to my niece this year so that she can count down the days 
until Christmas.  She is almost 3 years old and i think she will have fun and make it
really exciting for her.  For my papers i started with Basic Grey's Christmas line to make
a simple layered base for the back and added ribbon to make bands across 
the front and ribbon bows in green for the top to decorate it more.  Ribbon always seems
to make the project that much better doesn't it? And the colors this time are so bright
and cheerful and matched so many of the papers i had it was super easy to make this.

For the stickers i found this Santa at Hobby Lobby and the wood veneer letters
are from Ruby Rock-it.  There were lots so it was simple to write out the whole message.

And here is a closeup of the bows that i did for the top.  I mixed two greens for it.
The bottom is the green satin and the top is a mixed sheer in green.

And now it's time for you to hop on to the next designer... Jenn

Thanks so much as always for stopping over and i always appreciate
the nice comments you leave and your love of ribbon like me!!

Have a really wonderful day :)
