You're One of a Kind ~ Creative Belli Challenge #84 ~ Ribbons

Good morning everyone!!  It's Wednesday and so that means it's time for another Creative Belli Challenge!!  This week our challenge is to use ribbon on your project.  Our sponsor this week is Sweet N Sassy Stamps and they provided the team with a couple of cute digi's to work with and will be released TOMORROW!!  I decided to use the one of the little  birds and the sentiment goes perfect on this layout of my sweet little grandson Colten and his mother, my daughter-in-law, Angela.  The photo was taken May, 2009 and Colten was 6 months old.  I also wanted to make a little scene, and since it was taken out here, I decided to make it into a little farm scene .. I cut the fence, tree and leaves out with my Silhouette SD.  I colored the digi with my copics and then cut it out.  If you look real close you will see that it is attached on another layer cut with my nestabilities, which has an embossed edge.  I had to do these because this paper, which I love, had a big butterfly right there and it just wouldn't work so I had to cover it up.  And then I attached it so the limb would line up with my tree. Here is a list of the other things I used:
SU Chocolate Chip CS
SU Sage Shadows CS and Ink
Bo-Bunny's Back to Back 12" Flutter Butter
EK Success Dimensional Alphabet Stickers
Spellbinders Nestabilities Labels Four
SU Circle Punch 1 3/4"
SU Circle Punch 1 3/8"
Silhouette SD
MS Gerbera Daisy Stickers
Robbin
Buttons
Farm Stickers
Butterfly and caterpillar stickers
Stickles
Spellbinders Nestabilities

I also did this for a few other challenges which are:
Frosted Designs ~ Embossing ~ look closely under the birds....
Pile It On ~ Any non-winter colors
Flutter By Wednesday ~ Open ~ and I used 2 butterflies
Stamp, Scrap and Doodle Saturdays ~ Open and at least 1 stamp
Alphabet Challenge ~ N is for New ~ Digi image and Bo-Bunny paper
C.R.A.F.T. ~ Paper Piecing
Dutch Dare  ~ Summer in Winter
One Stop Craft Challenge ~ Make It Personal
