http://rockymtnpapercrafts.blogspot.com/. I used mainly cardstock and ink. The sun was embossed with my cuttlebug and the rays are from CTMH's Patterned Pennants stamp set. I used the color ready seam binding ribbon. I kept trying different ribbons in my stash and none seemed right... either too dainty or too heavy and then I saw this sitting there and remembered how versatile it is. The best part was I got to make it while I Skype scrapped with my friend Donna back in NY and in just a few minutes I'm gonna Skype scrap again-my afternoon plans changed and I am finding myself with some time and what better way to fill it? Remember to keep smiling!

Unfortunately I missed out on the Byrnecliff crop this winter... a little too far this time. I was able to crop along with the girls for a little bit anyway though thanks to Skype! They passed me around the tables so I got to visit with a lot of the girls, but not all. I decided it was about time I actually made a scrapbook page. I just love the Chantilly papers and all the goodies that go along with it so I hunted down some girly pics to use. I bought the Chantilly Scrapbook workshop mainly for the stamp set that came with it (and the sparkle gems and other extras that were in there too and of course a whole 'nother pack of the paper!). I didn't use the instructions though. Instead I pulled out the Magic book and used a layout from it. I realized after I had placed my pics I had a bunch more that I'd forgotten that had been shoved under some papers. So I pulled out my trusty flip flaps and added them on top of one of the other pics in the layout. I also used Wheel of Life stamp set AGAIN! Great set I must say! It went so well with the special workshop stamp set that came with the kit. I had a lot of fun and while it wasn't AS good as being there it was a nice substitute.
