Challenge 25 - BOWS! with Stephanie Howell

Joining us for this next challenge is the fabulous and talented Stephanie Howell. Here is her challenge for us...

Okay, I admit it. I’m a girly-girl. I add bows and ribbon to everything. My girls wear bows in their hair every day. I tie pretty bows on packages. I have multiple items of clothing that feature bows. I might be addicted!

I love to add bows to my layouts.I think it makes the entire page seem like a soft, delicate gift. I challenge you to tie a pretty bow onto your layout. You can tie a tiny bow, several bows, or an oversized bow (those are the type I favor!).

I can’t wait to see what you all create, I’m thrilled to be visiting Method Playground!

Jen and Pamela are away on vacation. We hope to post our takes on this challenge soon, so check back.

You have 2 weeks to complete this challenge (Midnight on Sunday, August 24th) to be considered for a RAK from Stephanie. Now go rummage through your stash for some yummy ribbon and show us what you've got!

I loved this challenge! It prompted me to pull out some ribbon I have had for 2 years!

I have seen other peoples' blogs mentioning Method Playground-I don't know why I put off coming here for so long, but I am glad I finally did! My layout is on my blog, www.melonscraps.blogspot.com

Thanks!
