TPE Scrapbook Challenge Saturday

Hi Everyone!  I am so happy that the weekend is here.  I have a real quick post for you today to share this week's challenge for TPE Scrapbook Challenge.  I am off to do a bit of shopping, I need new unmentionables and then I'm off to a baby shower.

This week we're adding banners to our pages.  Now, when you look at my page you may ask yourself where my banners are....


A-ha!  I'm glad you asked.  Banners can take on many different looks.  Mine took the form of items hanging on a laundry line.  It's time (passed time) to send this sweet set back to Raisin Boat.  I've held onto for 2 months of rent cycles.  Haha!


Isn't that cute?  And the saying.... yep, a baby hangs onto your heart forever.  This is my son Brendan at about 3 or 4 months old.  This adorable baby boy will be 18 in two weeks.  Ack!!

I did base the layout on a great sketch by I {Heart} Sketches.

Alrighty, I'm off to Dillards... or Macy's or somewhere.

Supplies
Stamps/Ink:  Loads of Love (Raisin Boat), Tuxedo Black (Memento)
Card stock:  White (Recollections), Neenah Classic Crest, Gable Green, Bashful Blue
Copics:  B000, C10, E33, E37, E53
Tools:  Paper Piercer, Cuttlebug, Argyle embossing folder
Embellishments:  Airmail Washi Tape (Freckled Fawn), natural Twine (MFT), blue grosgrain ribbon (Offray)
