Lets Get Shabby #25

I actually got around to completing a challenge this month! God bless rainy days ;)

I truly love the Lets Get Shabby blog. I love the challenges, I love the Team, I LOVE the inspiration!!

Challenge #25 is in honor of Let's get Shabby's 2nd birthday!
The challenge was to be inspired by this photo:

Added criteria...your project had to feature the #2, and two items from this list:Lace,Chipboard, Ribbon, Material/Fabric, Book/Music page.

Here is my take
I love the blue/grey/white color combo in the inspiration photo, so I *borrowed* that color scheme :)
I used ribbon and book paper from the list (The little scalloped green and blue ribbon) And lots of number 2's found on both the bingo card and the little journalling *22* card.
Anyone else find when they set out to specifically use items on a page their brain starts to find ways NOT to use them?? I usually can't complete a page without lace or ribbon, and when I was challenged to use it? I had to squeeze it in somewhere! Stupid brain!
Thanks so much for stopping by!
Have a GREAT week!
