Yay! It's Portrait Bug Week! What is Portrait Bug week you ask? Well, every day from today through Sunday, I will be posting a project I made for Portrait Bug along with a tutorial on how to create some part of the page.
First up, a fairly simple page. I'm going to show you how to create the rolled ribbon beads I used to create the photo frame.
Supplies: Cardstock (Bazill); Paint (Winsor&Newton); Glimmer Mist (Tattered Angels); Chipboard (American Crafts); Pens (Zig, Uniball Signo); Ink (Ranger Distress Ink); Miscellaneous: paper, fiber, and ribbon scraps

As a side note, I had a *great* time at the Manhattan Scrapbooker's Scrap Pink crop on Saturday. I was there from about 11:30am-5am. Portrait Bug set up a nice little store, which was crazy and fun and surprising and I can't believe I didn't take any photos! The good news is that I won the big raffle prize: a brand new Cricut! I donated it back to the group though. I figured it was better for everyone to be able to use it at the crops than for it to sit in my apartment, you know?
