Tomorrow we are having a 70th birthday party for my mother-in-law. She is not your typical mother-in-law, she is very sweet and old-fashioned. So I used my Cricut Storybook cartridge and lots of embellishments from my "stash" to create this wonderful banner for the party.
The letters spell out "HAPPY BIRTHDAY DOROTHY". I used a combination of floral embellishments because she loves flowers. I also chose another one of her favorites, birds, to embellish the pennants. Finally, I added some extra butterflies, bees, and dragonflies to add a little more pizzazz. I used ribbon from a recent yard sale find. The ribbon was for Mother's Day, so it has phrases relating to all the wonderful qualities of a mother. I finished the banner by tying the individual pennants to a strand of jute string.
I plan on collecting the banner after the party to use in a birthday memories scrapbook. I think that during the party I will collect handwritten memories from friends, relatives, and neighbors and use those comments to create memorable scrapbook pages. Hope you have a wonderful weekend!! It's back to work for me on Monday :(. Thanks for visiting!! Patty
