Fun with Banners!

I've done a lot of scrapbook pages in my time but can your believe I've never done a banner?  They are hugely popular right now for scrap pages.  I know I drew lots of inspiration from the work of our two featured designers today, come check them out with me!

"Spring Flowers"
by Carin McDonough 
Carin gave us banners 2 ways! She strung a beautiful butterfly banner across the top of her lovely spring page and then accented her photo by stringing ribbon style banners across the bottom!

Cardstock : Coordinating Double Dot - Poppy Dot
Chipboard : Alora Layered Chipboard

Check out this fun banner Agnieszka strung along her wall as a home decor item!  I just love all the pretty little details in each of the individual pieces!
