Love Chipboard Banner

Since I had my Cosmo Cricket QVC kit out to make my sketch card that I posted yesterday, I decided to create and hang this "Love" chipboard banner. I backed the pieces in red Cosmo Cricket paper, and then I laced all the pieces together. I added long pieces of ribbon to the ends so that I could hang it below my mantle.


On each circle, I added small photos of us. I really like the way this turned out! If you click on the photo, you can see it larger.


The "L" features Emily, myself, and Jessica. I also added the word "smile".


The "O" features Dave and a small photo of Princess. Above Dave, I added the word "love".


The "V" features my beautiful girls Emily and Jessica. Above Emily I added "all smiles", and under Jessica, I added "sweet". I also added small die cut flowers with rhinestone centers.


The "E" features Princess. I added small letter stickers that say "family", and I added "2007".


This is how it looks suspended under our mantle. I "love" it!

Happy Friday! Enjoy your day, have a wonderful weekend, and thanks for stopping by!

You young gals are just so crafty and clever! I love your LOVE display!!!

I found your blog through Groppi Girl's Blog. I see you were asking her for info on Disney. I work for a property management company that rents vacation villas/homes near Disney. Each home has its own private pool and everything! Depending on the season when you come, the rates for a 3 bed pool home start at $89 per night plus tax. Check out our website...homesnearmickey.com. That is my direct phone line on the site, as I handle all the reservations, so if you call it, you would reach me. We haven't added to our site in quite a while but I have access to about 200 homes/condos altogether. You can also reach me by email at homesnearmickey@aol.com. We even offer info on discounted tickets to the various parks.

I am going to add your blog to my blogroll. I'll be back when I can. I work 2 jobs and have 33 cats, so I am a busy ole gal. I love blogging and reading blogs and have always loved crafts, so I plan to visit you again. I invite you to visit my blog anytime! Wish I could stay longer now to look around yours more, but I am trying to clean house today, and ended up on the computer! LOL
