I am seriously exhausted...

We went to Tully's Berry Farm, and picked 11, 4 litre buckets of strawberries. Of course with the fun of that comes shucking them and cutting them and bagging them. Now my back is so sore and my left arm feels like carpal tunnel syndrome. Except, I don't know what carpal tunnel feels like. I've got 31 ziploc bags of berries. :S I'll probably keep out 6 or 7 and the rest will be frozen.

This is the first layout that I did for the Savvy N' Sassy design team, using SNS ribbon. I had a sketch laying around, and this BEAUTIFUL Cosmo Cricket paper came in, thankfully AFTER the coffee incident! It's the Hello Sunshine line, in case you were wondering...the colours are to DIE for!!!
The ribbon kit I picked matched it perfectly...I'll get a pic of that up too. Do you see the hand stitching? I am seriously obsessed with that right now. At first I was like meh, what a silly trend...but it hasn't really caught on...and I LOVE the detail it adds to my layout. Stay tuned for another (much more involved) hand stitched layout to come for my STMYS DT blog! Only a couple more days for that reveal, I'm so excited!

I have a headache, now I need to lay down.

Just out of you like working with ribbon on your layouts? Do you like to use it but just don't think of it?

I would love to use ribbon but I am so uncreative. That's why I'm lurking here :D (to see your layouts, Aleks!!)
