Barbara Banner

Hi, everybody!   We have had gorgeous weather here this weekend.  Not that I got out much - busy creating goodies, you know.  By the way, I'm so jealous of Paul (my son-in-law).  Here's his "new" car:

I SOOOO wanted an MGB when I was 16.  My dad and I drove one and he told me it was like driving a tin can.  So, needless to say I did not get that cute little red MGB (I got a new camaro, instead.  So, I can't complain too much).  I was teasing my mom and dad about it this week and I find out that Daddy really wanted to get it and Mom was worried about my safety!  Now, the truth comes out...

This banner was made for a new friend of mine, Kim from Altus, to decorate her sister's 50th birthday party.  The pretty background pennants are a new set from Iralamija's shop

The set includes butterflies - you can see one of them above.  I found some really cool tinsel glitter at Michaels.  I really love how it looks on the letters!

Hope you've had a wonderful weekend and have a great week, too!


  1. Oh Lori! It's hard to say because all you do is wonderful and this work is more one of your shows!
    Here is so expensive to make scrapbookings, the material used is very expensive, unfortunately.
    But congratulations once again!

  2. Your son's MGB looks fun Lori. I love it when family "secrets" come out ;0) Your bunting is beautiful I am sure your friend was delighted. We are having lots of much needed rain here, enjoy your sunshine when you can get out in it,
