Pennant Banner

For the information booth
at our First Friday Event
I made a pennant Banner
I got poster board at Walmart
for .50
I used a plastic banner
from the dollar store as a pattern

I cut out letters on the cricut at 4 in
then using transfer paper
 I applied it to the poster board

I then used see through contact paper
and cut leaving a slight boarder
so in case of foul weather 
it won't get wet

cut 2 holes in the top
and strung ribbon through them

this was a very easy project

how they looked at the event

Happy 24th!

Today is my son 
Andrews 24th birthday

It's both happy
 and sad
for me

This morning he called
to tell me 
he made it to

Needless to say not
where I would chose 
for him to be on his birthday

as I was making
 the above

I had a great time
laughing and reminiscing
at the photos
there were so many to choose
from that it was hard to decide
but these are my two favorites

I love the poor joy on his face
it was taken at Easter

and this one
was after the kids had gone
swimming at the hotel pool
on our way 
moving to Utah

It was such a fun moment

I know he reads my blog
and will be able to do so


Happy Birthday to you
Happy Birthday to you
Happy Birthday 
DEAR Andrew
Happy Birthday to you

I miss and love you bunches...!

This is the first year
