It's A Banner Day!

Hello and Welcome!  I just had the opportunity to participate in a "mini banner" swap hosted by a fellow scrapbooker on Two Peas in a Bucket.  What a fun idea for something different!  Who among us doesn't love to look through their stash for cool papers and embellies to make them with?  Since I tend to like things that are on the "cutesy" side, mine are kind of, well, cutesy.  Betcha never would have guess that now, would ya?  LOL!

Just in case you think I did this all by my lonely, never fear...I had my good pal Cricut to help me. While I came up with the ideas and did the final assembling, my little Cricut did the most time consuming part, the cutting. All I had to do was tell her what to cut, and away she went. What a great pal to have when you need some help. :)

Cartridges used were Everyday Paper Dolls for the farmer, and Doodlecharms for the ice cream cone and the school bus. I have included pics of the individual pieces (except for the school bus) as well as pics of the banners themselves so that you could see how they are put together. I hope you enjoy looking at them as much as I enjoyed making them!
