Lasting Memories Challenge # 76 Wrapped Up In Ribbon

Well the challenge for me this week was a bit more challenging than normal. May Arts sent each member of the Design Team a piece of ribbon to include in Lasting Memories Wrapped Up In Ribbon challenge layouts. Mine was hot pink ric rack. I have boys! LOL So I thought and thought. And then I called Mom and asked her to come to the rescue! She found my baby pics-which were perfect since this year one of my goals and to get my story told through scrapbooking.

So now my true age is about to be divulge. It's hard to hide the fact I was born in the early 60's when you look at this baby seat! LOL And check out the colors of my grandmother's living room! LOL And yes I am half a century young:)

Supplies: Everything on this layout is The Girls Paperie, except for the Mayarts Ric Rack. I found the paper collection  through a real cool discount website Scrapbook Steals. They have two daily deals morning and evening. I often can get a complete paper and embellishment collection for 50-75% off! And shipping is very reasonable.

Since this is ribbon week we decided as a Design Team to share how we store ribbon. So now you will know one of my secret addictions right up there with paper- RIBBON. It like a magnet to me. My idea of a good time is to spend an hour sifting through the ribbon at Micheal's or Hobby Lobby. And the dollar bin has my name written all over it. Sometimes when I am having a bad day I just like to play with my ribbon as therapy!  So yes I really do have 7 Simply Renee Clip It Up Ribbon Organizers. And I have told myself I can't buy anymore ribbon until I use what I have. So that hot pink rick rack from May Arts was soothing to my soul!!!!

I also use  a Pull EZ Ribbon Purse.This is great for those smaller pieces. And get this-I have never had a single tangle!!!

The prize this week at Lasting Memories is sponsored by May Arts. Look at all of that yummy ribbon! Get those layouts submitted so that you don't miss out !
