The Banner...turned about

Without doubt the biggest trend for me this year has been the use of banners.  Need a corner filled up...put a banner.  Want a place for your about a banner?

It is a bit ridiculous how much I use them.  So there I was a few days ago, sitting and staring at the awesome Cosmo Cricket Circa 1934 chipboard and there were the perfect pieces to make a banner.  I built the layout and then put my foot down.  No arching or draping banner on this project.  I might have even said it out loud.  Thank goodness I scrap at night where no one but the cats can hear me.

So I used those perfect banner pieces, but I laid them out vertically.  In a straight line.  And here is what I came up with.

The theme of this layout celebrates how alike Ella and Auntie Sara are.  I am so lucky to have such an amazing family.  My immediate family and my in laws.  We had a family party this weekend and Aunt Bippy noticed Steve and I with our arms around each other.  She talked about how we are on a journey together.  Some will be good, some will be bad.  But we are in it.  It really touched me.  Because I see it like that and I know that those family members are there to support and guide.  The best part is that my kids get to grow up with in that environment.

And that certainly deserves a banner!
