Sketchy thursdays 10.14--ride to school & a ribbon flower tutorial....

So the kids went back to school, I got some laundry done, bread made, went to the gym and played with this weeks sketch at Sketchy Thursdays:
Here's a closeup of the title:
This is one of those cool Pink Paislee Parisian papers included in the kit,  they are SOOO cool!  I distressed it with scattered straw, shabby shutters, and tumbled glass.  YUMMY!

One of the add ons for the October kit is Pink Paislee Parisian Anthology Ruffled darlings ribbon (that's a mouth full!), you can take a look HERE (BTW they ship free with any purchased kit.)
1. I snipped a 2 1/2" piece of ribbon:
2. I rolled the ribbon shinny side in:
3. I ran it threw my sewing machine on a straight stitch:
4: this is what it looks like:
I then had a brad from my stash and worked it through the center of the flower, this is a closeup of the finished project:
Easy right?  I am almost at the end of my WONDERFUL kit, I think I can manage one more layout.  And then I'll probably make some cards.  There still are a few kits left, you can see the whole kit detail HERE.
I'm off to soccer practice, wanted to thank you for stopping in and visiting!
