Ruby Rock-it & Twinery Blog Hop

Hello Friends!

I know it has been a while since I have posted. We had SO much going on the past few weeks:
End of year field trips, closing concerts, vacation & a minor patch of extremely great weather. Today we got back to it and I had a few crazy boys to entertain/wrangle/pacify/feed/etc/etc/etc ;) As crazy, dirty and loud as it can be, I wouldn't trade any of these little guys- I just love having the bunch of them in my home and it's wonderful company for my own little boy. ;)



But enough about me - let's start the blog hop!!
Hopefully, you are arriving here from Kellie's fabulous blog, but if not, start here: The Twinery Blog and get hopping :)

I use twine on almost every LO and have alot of Twinery brand in my stash. For this LO, I used the honeydew shade in bits and pieces tucked into my flower clusters.
 

 
I also wanted to make a divide to my page, so I simply sewed on 2 buttons and wrapped the twine around them several times and secured with a knotted bow. I think this is a great focal point and draws your eye to the photo & title work.
 
 
Last but not least, here is the full version of my LO (pardon the 14 year old pics of me and my hubby - hard to believe how much time can change a couple's looks ;) )

 
To be eligible for the combined Ruby Rock-it/Twinery prize, please see the COMPLETE contest details on THIS POST.

Cindy, I like the idea of "underlining" a photo with the twine as you did.
