Hello!  So I am FINALLY able to post some of what I've been working on, HOORAY!  I didn't want to post them too early because they were gifts but the party is done so here we go....

I've been on a banner-spree as of late because, well I love them. :)  My niece and nephew (two different sisters) share a birthday so I whipped a couple of these bad boys out for their birthday parties.  

Click on any of the pictures for a closer look!

Taylor is a lime-green fanatic so I knew she would LOVE this :)  ( I left the tulle quite long on both sides to make sure she was able to hang it in her room.  It can be trimmed accordingly!)

 I fanci-fied the letters because she's 11 and what 11 year old doesn't love some bling-age?  Each letter in her name received 3 little crystals, courtesy of my new i-rock!

 My original idea was the put turtles of some sort on each end panel but the lime-green leopard paper was too busy and too much green.  The stars worked well!

 I used glitter paper for the stars because, of course stars twinkle, no?!

The stars and all the letters were given dimension too.  They all popped up nicely!

Make sure to buzz by tomorrow to see the banner I made for my nephew :)  It's adorable!
