Birthday Banner

Do you have fun plans for the long holiday weekend? I start my weekend with the first football game of the season tonight. Tomorrow is my baby’s 18th birthday *sigh* How fast time flies! Sunday we are having a big party to celebrate my grandmothers 90th birthday! Monday I think I will take time to rest!!

My mother asked me to create a banner for the birthday celebration. Rather than using festive birthday papers, I wanted to create the banner from patterns and colors that remind me of my grandmother. This is what I came up with.

I love using my Gypsy to
size my shapes, and locate placement of the cut on my papers exactly where I want them saving time, paper, and money! My banner was created using Lovely Floral, Storybook, and Cindy Loo cartridges. To add dimension to the banner, I adhered each layer with foam dots. For fun, I created a birdhouse between the word and numbers.

Have a super fun and safe weekend!
