Playing with Punches!

Happy Thursday!
There are some AMAZING punches out there right now, and I'm a little smitten with some of Martha's new ones in particular!  I'm going to share 3 layouts that I've done in the last few days and two of them use her Punches, and the other one is my week 4 Savvy N' Sassy Ribbon Rave challenge layout ;0)
Okay, first for the punches, since there's two of those layouts!
This one I did today, with some input from my Sweet Sarah. lol  I used up some BG June Bug that I've had since last fall, and I'm loving it again!  I made the big blossom using some hydrangeas from a bush at Michaels.  I will do a tutorial on that at some point. lol 
This is one I did yesterday, with some goodies from my friend Elia that came in my Kris Kringle from the Nook, and some papers from the firesale there in December.
 I also used a wrought iron Martha around the page punch on the top layer of 7Gypsies.  Love this line!  Such beautiful colours!  My nieces took my 3 monkey's to a neighbours farm to ride Charlie the pony and get a cart ride from Harry the miniature pony.  They loved it, and can't wait to go back!

Now for the week four contest layout.

Our challenge was to use 3 different types of embellishments, 3 photos, 3 pattern papers and 3 different ribbons.  The ribbon challenge within was to incorporate ribbon weaving on the layout.  This is my result.
