It's all about Ribbon at Use it Tuesday
 If you're not familiar with Use it Tuesday, their mission is to get crafty people using what they already have. So show us your layouts, cards, and altered art for this fun challenge 

Here's what I did with ribbon from my stash
My best friends daughter just turned one and I made this layout as a present for Eloise.
I wish I could say the paper is from my stash, but it's not.
Picked up this cute Bo Bunny Birthday paper at an old scrap shop in a new location. 
If you are ever in Eugene be sure to stop by Paiges in time

Left side of layout.
  I used ribbon under my border punch to help it pop out from the background and I also used the same ribbon on the photo mat.  
Cut the one using plantain Schoolbook at 4.25 inches.
Distressed the edges with my scissors and hand drew the black outline

I tacked the ribbon down on the back side of the mat so that my good friend Sandra can just slide in the pictures of her daughters birthday party

Right side
I created a matching title plate with stickers from my stash and some hand drew asterisks to match

I hope I've inspired you to use some of your stash and would love to see what you come up with.

Please link your creation using Inlinkz by Friday  Sept 7th. No blog? No problem! Just use keyword USE038 when uploading to an online gallery and leave us a direct link so we can find your creation.
Please make sure to mention you are playing along with us at Use It Tuesday  (a link is great too!)
