Awareness Ribbon YouTube Hop

When working out themes for this year we wanted to have some themes we haven't done before and we had some great ideas suggested.  One that I was really passionate about was a project about Awareness so we decided to go with Using a Ribbon on your project and that the projects would be about raising Awareness about something important to the person creating the project for the hop.  So we have a wide variety of projects for you about various things that are important to Hop members.
It is interesting to see how everyone took this challenging themed and created such beautiful projects.

For this Hop we have a wonderful Sponsor who has donated a awesome prize pack so make sure you follow all the steps to enter the draw for your chance to win a fantastic bundle of goodies from Ruby Rock-It.

Check out all the gorgeous projects in this hop.

Each member of the hop chose what was important to them to raise awareness and how they would interpret that into their art.

Here is the hop order so you can find the videos you would like.

And here is the Playlist I created for the Hop.

For my project I decided to make a Banner for the Endo High Tea I was hosting on March 30th.  You can find a blog post about my High Tea here.

I started by gathering everything yellow I could easily get to on my desk so as to make playing and creating easier.  As I progressed I grabbed out some gorgeous Crafter's Choice bling and a pack of Bella! wedding themed wood veneer.

I initially intended to just create with without letters so that it could be reused for other events like Easter or my daughter's Birthday but once I had my 4 pennants decorated I felt they needed the letters so they would look finished so I grabbed out some gorgeous Ruby Rock-It Acid Free Chipboard gold alphas and spelt out ENDO on my pennants.

I love how my banner turned out, it looked so cute on the table at my Endo High Tea.
