Banner Bonanza Blog Hop

Pin It
Welcome to the Banner Bonanza Blog Hop!


We're so glad you could join us today! If you've come from An'Jenic's blog, you're in the right place. If you've just come across the hop, please start at the beginning with Ashley at Made Especially For You.

For this blog hop I came across some paper, photos, and chipboard that I had saved in a folder years ago. They were all pulled together so I could make a banner of my boys. They were so small and so cute back then, so I decided heck, why not! So I created my banner of my boys after all and it is proudly displayed in my home.

 

 The chipboard rectangles are approx. 3x4". They have been sanded, inked, and covered with paper.
I had some random chipboard letters that are 2" tall. I also sanded and inked them and added paper. Together they spell out the word LOVE!
 I decorated each rectangle with various media: lace, ribbon, flowers, pearls and bling.
  Each piece is tied together with some ribbon that I knotted on the front side for added interest.
And here it is..hanging up in my formal dinning room on the hutch. The colors are very muted and perfect for this room. Banners are great fun and can decorate any room in your house, with photos and without!


 
We also have some fabulous sponsors giving away prizes
