{Banners}

Banners are all the rage right now in scrapbooking, whether it's a tiny banner added to a layout, or one made to hang as room decor. I think they are so cute!!  Here's 3 layouts, all with a fun little banner added for an embellishment. (click on the pics for a larger view!)






For the Walking with Grandpa and #1 Star Wars Fan layouts, I used a triangle punch I bought years ago. It came in quite handy for punching the banner shapes!! The other layout is made out of stickers from My Minds Eye Lost & Found collection, with Jenni Bowlin alphas for the numbers added. I Love the My Minds Eye banner stickers, but the glitter numbers don't show up very well, so adding the JB stickers remedied that!  For that last layout, I'm going to have my Dad-in-law do the journaling on a tag that pulls out from behind the picture. There's a long story that goes with the picture of his Mom from 1938. Notice she is wearing pants. Women didn't wear pants in 1938, at least not out in public, and especially not when they were getting ready to play their guitar at a dance.  I never got to meet my Dad-in-law's Mom (my hubby's Grandma) but I sure would have loved to.  Everytime I hear a story about her I always think of the quote "Well behaved women rarely make history"  Yep, I would have loved to have known her! wink wink
Happy weekend ya'all!
