Good afternoon lovely peeps! 
Sorry I am late, no excuses I just had a lovely lazy morning with the new love of my life, my kindle!! Lol!! I have always loved reading, but the kindle I got for my birthday has really re-awakened my passion of getting lost in a good book! and Logan was away for a sleepover last night and rob was off golfing first thing so I had a blissful morning curled up on the sofa!
Well on to the business at hand, it's time for another fabby challenge over at basic grey challenges this time we would love to see your creations using ribbon and lace!

The Flowers are a mix of WOC and Kort & Godt, everything else is from my stash!
