Little Yellow Bicycle and May Arts

As you probably know, I freely admit that I'm a ribbon fanatic. Seldom do I make a page that doesn't include a bow or at least a strip of ribbon. Teaming with May Arts is perfect for me! Between the ribbon and all the beautiful trims that May Arts makes, I couldn't be happier!
For you, this team up means that you have chances all week long to win!!  Check out the Little Yellow Bicycle and the May Arts blogs for the details! 

This is a sweet picture of a friend's daughter that was taken at Christmas time. Her little black and white outfit goes beautifully with both the
houndstooth paper and the black accents. I used some of the tiny pom-pom trim from May Arts to border the inside square shape to further accent and ground the layout with more black. Using a strong adhesive tape to hold it in place worked well without causing the paper to potentially buckle by using wet glue. If you take a closer look, you can see that I placed it so that you can see mostly the pom-poms.

A few medium sized bows can make a big impact on your page. If you take a closer look at the ribbon that I used for the bows, you will see that the green and red ribbons have a touch of black woven in add a touch of sheen and the high quality and you can see that these ribbons couldn't go any more beautifully with the elegance of the Once Upon a Christmas papers and embellishments.

For balance, I put more bows at the bottom of the page. On this side, I chose to continue the look of hanging the ornaments. Using such a large amount of ribbon led to the decision to keep the rest of the layout design relatively simple. It also means that this layout can be completed quickly and easily!
The sentiment was added using the DejaViews clear stickers. Don't forget these stickers when designing! There are so many different ones and so easy to use. I really like how so many of them use different sizes and fonts for sentiments and titles. Not to mention, they stay stuck!
