Day in the Park - Scrapbooking Memories Vol. 12 No. 10

Been so busy these past couple of days... doing mommy duties, scrapping, make some swarovski accessories and fixing my scrap stuff that I almost forgot to post about this.
Anyway, better late than never huh. 

I'm really happy that I was offered to do a Recipe Challenge for one on my favorite scrapbooking magazine - Scrapbooking Memories.  The recipe challenge was... to create a page using only the following:  1-5x7 photo, 1 shaped patternpaper or cardstock, 2 ribbons, 2 chipboard shapes, 3 different alphas, string, stapples and masking tape.
Here is my take...

There you have it!  Thanks so much for looking!
