Multi-Photo Challenge

I finished another blog challenge from The Starres And Back..... This one was to use a lot of photos, suggestively index prints. We were also told to use paint or ink and real stitching. Here is her example from June Creating Keepsakes.
This is what I came up with. Not having many pictures of my own, tigardlilly gave me her index prints of the Portland Rose Festival Grand Floral Parade from last year. It was the 100th anniversary of the festival, so the parade was much bigger. They had what they called 4 parades within the parade. They broke it into 4 generations, the Jazz Generation, the Greatest Generation, the Groovy Generation, and the Global Generation. I used that breakdown on this layout.
I used Scenic Route Paper, Technique Tuesday stamps for the circle borders, Sassafras Lass stamps for the dotted circles inside the bigger circles, and the stamps I got at Mike's yesterday for the title and 100 years. I used Bazzill In Stitches template for the border, MM Paint for the page border and mat border. I also used Stickles for the title and 100 years.

On anothe note, last night I got out all my ribbon, and holy cow! I have too much ribbon. I need to find a way to store it, but I can't let it hang out because the cats will eat it. I can't go buy storage, and have a lot of floss cards. Any ideas? I would love to hear them.

That LO is awesome!!! The use of the index prints is just great. I like how you broke the sections of the parade down too. Very clever.

You know how I store my ribbon. I totally think it would work with smaller baggies too.

I love that layout Marilyn!!! Now about the ribbon, I can't help ya there, since I store mine on shishkabob skewers and then tape the ends.

One of the ways that I store my ribbon is to wrap each ribbon around one of the old fashioned wooden clothespin. I clip the end of the ribbon between the ends of the pin. I store these in pantry jars and baskets.

Good luck!
