    Four projects have really drawn my attention: ruffle butt onesie, the skirt on the pom pom bunny under glass, Mother of the Bride layout and the Choose Joy banner. Can’t pick a favorite, but that layout is a beautiful use of ribbon to embellish a page. There are some very talented papercrafters out there!

    While all the project are great I feel that Easter Basket by Michele Kosciolek is spectacular. It showcases the ribbons without being too much. The Reusable Gift Bag by Liz Ortiz comes in at a close second. The colors are stunning on white bag. I would use this bag for work.
    The basket I would use all year long in my craft room as inspiration to use more color in the right places and not go over board.

    Oops, not sure if my comment made it. I love the cards by Terri Burson of the 50s, cuz that’s when I grew up as a teen. In fact, my children have often told me they wished they had grown up in my “Happy Days.”
