Friday with Moxxie Fall Banner

Happy Friday!!

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.
And a look at the whole mantle.
supplies

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!
