5 on Friday

Well, first week of school is behind me. Only 12 more weeks until Christmas Break -- not that I'm counting. ;) It's been a crazy week of shoving kids out of bed, pulling them downstairs to get their things together and beg them to eat and while I make lunches. Followed later in the day by homework pleas that will ring all year round "Please, just do your work!" (This will eventually be followed with threats of restricted privileges, which has some degree of success.) With all the pushing and pulling, I'm about ready for something easy. Bring on this week's 5 on Friday challenge! Grab these five items:
  • 1 sheet patterned paper with swirls
  • 1 sheet patterned paper with stripes
  • 1 sheet cardstock
  • 1 alphabet set
  • 1 length of ribbon

Outside of any journaling, use only the ingredients listed above and have your layout linked in the comment section of this post by Saturday evening. Remember, you can be creative with the items you do have to use -- ripped, rolled, torn, paper blossoms, etc. -- but you can only use these items.

Molly resolved her technical issues from last week and was finally able to share with us her 5 on Friday layout. Nice work Molly!

Wow Bessie,

Great layouts!!! I love how your swirl paper is also your stripe paper, very clever. I am working on mine. I just got back into town this morning from a night away with my hubby to celebrate our anniversary. I am working in 5 minute increments around my 3 year old who is happy to have mom and dad back after they were gone sooooo long (about 18 hours). Anyway, I am going to try to have a LO by tonight as I am all about the 5 on Friday. We'll see........
