Spit Happens! My 3 Girl Jam Design Team Day!

Today is my Design Team Day over at 3 Girl Jam!
Today I am featuring 3 Girl Jam white Crinkle Ribbon! I love how white and crisp this white crinkle ribbon is!

I just loved this bib on Baby Steps and remember my girls wearing one the entire fist year while they spit and drooled all over! I could not resist this fun Spot Happens stamp! I decided to make it prettier by adding ribbon along the edges just like the real ones have!
