a little loopy layout

today i have a layout that i made for my newest little mann! my first layout with him on it (if you don't count the one i made showing his ultrasound (here). anyway, i wanted to make it just perfect, and i hope i came close to that, at least! i was inspired by the latest challenge going on at CAS-ual Fridays - feeling loopy!

i knew i wanted to do a banner-type layout, and when i read the challenge, i was like BAM, that's it, ribbon loops! here it is:

i looped ribbon around the twine to look like a banner! you may think this color combo is a little odd (grey, teal and yellow), but i LOVE it. we did all of his room in this color scheme! so i knew i had to incorporate those colors on his 'welcome' layout! :)

i used two different lawn fawn stamp sets (harold's abc's and plus one) for this layout. LOVE me some lawn fawn! :) the moon and stars that hang next to the ribbons on the banners are actually part of the mobile on the 'plus one' set that i isolated. :) i really liked the look of the mixing the 'harold's abcs' stamp set with thickers for the main title of the page. that's one of my favorite parts!

i also added some buttons to a few of the ribbon's to add some dimension and hidden delights! :)

i then added nolan's 'stats' and some pictures of him from the hospital, and vwa-la! another CAS layout in the bank. :)

well, that's it!
