Now that November has sneaked up on us, I have finally put together my Fall banner. I purchased Boxy Banner dies with the intention to make Birthday banners for my kiddos as well as the holidays. So, although Halloween came and went without a banner, I have created a banner that can hang for the entire autumn season.
I used Dark Chocolate cardstock for the base and the patterned paper is from Pretty Pastels. I die cut Summer Sunrise carstock with the Banner Borders die and used my Cricut to die cut the letters from my Alphalicious cartridge. I had a few attempts at adding some leaves from my Turning a New Leaf die, but I just wasn't liking it. As it turns out, my leaf garland that I picked up at Joanns for 70% would've hidden them any way.
This picture ledge hangs on the wall between our foyer and living room. Our son, who will be 4 months old very soon, will eventually have his photos up along side his sister's. Just in case your are wondering, her ages from left to right: 7 months, 17 months, 3 years and the cut off photo 2 years.
