banners-copy
Where ever you go you see a banner wether you are driving down the main street of town and there is some festival going on, or a birthday party or on cards and layouts.
So this month the Krazy Crafting Crew is going to show you all different kinds of banners they have made for fresh ideas, maybe birthdays, weddings and more.
Our hostess today is Liz from

If you have stumbled upon the hop and would like to start from the beginning we have the full line up below to help you navigate through.
So let's get started...

For my project, I made a layout. Take a look then  I'll tell you all about it!

 
All paper is from Stampin' Up. I cut the banner pieces from a punch I picked up while on vacation last week.. lucky find!! I used some purple letters from a sticker sheet to go with the purple around the photo. I started to use twine, and have a basket full but I couldn't find any colors I liked to go with the paper and banner, so I used a ribbon from that paper package to make a place to pin the pieces and added a bow. I was going to use this page for one of my daughters and her friends, but I had done some cleaning yesterday, and found these photos from a business trip in 2008. My co-workers and I had attended an AGSES (Association of Girl Scout Executive Staff) in Orlando, Florida and while we were there, it was my birthday. So they surprised me at dinner that evening. One of them had given me the photos she had taken that night and I thought this might be just perfect for my Friend Banner and it gets one more page done in my Girl Scout album. I had a wonderful experience, both as a girl, adult volunteer and then as staff and if you haven't checked out Girl Scouts in your area, please do so!

  6. Hi Janet .. Your layout is super sweet, love the banner and the occasion. I was not a Girl Scout myself, but in my 20's I served as a Brownie leader to an inner city troop in Philadelphia. It was interesting, as our girls were as diverse as they could get -- some very rich, some very poor ... White, black, and every other ethnicity. The girls LOVED it, and it was very rewarding for me personally.

    Fondly,
