I am so ready for the weekend I can hardly stand it!! This is our first weekend without a Saturday sporting event with Jack. So the only thing for me to do is grocery, errands and I have dentist appointment. I am not sure how I handle the extra time! hehehehe-- maybe scrap?????? Then on Sunday we have tennis practice and game. I have to say I am loving helping out being the assistant coach but I have to say we have 2 more weeks left and I am looking forward to it ending. I really just want to relax a bit! The on the go for both Saturdays and Sundays has really started to wear on me!
So today for my Friday with Moxxie post I have a fall banner. I love fall and I love to decorate my mantle with all the fall colors and decorations but I felt it was missing something! So one of the things I love to create is a banner. I used the Shades of Autumn collection for this. I cut the banner pieces using cardstock and then cut the top layer with one of the beautiful pattern pieces. I then cut the words fall out 6 times- the first 5 where with kraft cardstock and I layered them on top of each other. Finally I added the yellow pieces cut from another sheet of the beautiful collection. I then inked the edges all in brown. To tie the banner pieces together I used the heavy burlap twine from The Stringery. This twine is amazing - so think and the colors are so awesome. I used the orange and brown colors.
Here is a close up.

Thanks so much for stopping by today. I will pop in tomorrow for a rare Saturday appearance to enter a card challenge. See you then. Have a wonderful and crafty day and weekend!
