blog hoppin with RRR











I am off camping .........wish me luck!  At least there are showers.....thank the heavens.  This post was scheduled ahead for today is the monthly blog hop with Really Reasonable Ribbon and you should have made your way here from Ms. Glorias.  We are showcasing the August monthly ribbon club.  This month they are lovely shades of purple and greys.  An unusual combination and I have to say a new favorite of mine.  I was really drawn to the greys in this set.....they remind me of a man's flannel grey suit.  Soft and warm.  I paired the grey with creams and a bit of black for contrast.  I took a chipboard rectangle and covered it in linen fabric and than cut strips of two of the ribbons and went to work weaving them a bit across the the rectangle.  I tied a bow to the side using two of the ribbons as well.  I added some buttons in the middle and a sentiment and I was done.  The other I just looped my ribbons over and over and added a felt bloom to the middle.  I love the fallish look to both......even though I really am not ready for Summer to be over.   Hope you have enjoyed my take on the club ribbons.  Make sure to hop on over to Emily's blog for more inspiration.   If you get lost a long the way to make your way back to the Really Reasonable ribbon blog...link above!  Hopefully I haven't gotten attacked by to many skeeters and will be back shortly to visit you all!  hugs, cherry
