A Scrapbook Layout with Ribbons, Doilies and Flowers!

Scrapbooks are a great way to preserve memories for years to come. There are a variety of popular layouts but by far my favorite is an off center frame surrounded by embellishments. I've been conceptualizing this arrangement for some time in my head and finally it took shape. I started with an adorable pattern paper from Itsy Bitsy and created this ribbon grid effect using the Sew Ribbon tool.
