Top Tip Tuesday: Focus on the ribbon

It is tuesday again and time for another challenge at Top Tip Tuesday! I can't believe how fast time flies. It's been two weeks since our last challenge. Before I tell you about our new challenge I want to thank all of you that played along with our circles challenge. If you played along and are wondering if you are amongst our winners you've got to check our challenge blog. 

I also have some sad news to share with you too. We have some rearrangements on our challenge blog, and I am sad to see that Janette, Tammy Louise and Katrina are leaving us, I wish them all the very best in what ever life brings and I am sure I'll see you all again. Thanks for all your lovely projects and great ideas you've all shared with us. At the same time I am glad that we have a lovely bunch of girls staying on our fabolous  team as well;) 

And now  I want to tell you about our new fabolous challenge. We have a "Focus on the ribbon" challenge and we have a lovely tutorial from Katie from the Ribbon Carousel, so please check in for that one;)
