Birthday Banner in its entirety

Here are the rest of the photos as promised!! I was not to happy with the quality of the photos..the wind was blowing and some of the banner looks like it is bent..but its not. Today it the pictures I took yesterday will just have to do....even though you can see chicken wire at the bottom of the
The chicken wire is used to keep a small dog from going through the openings in the fence and falling into the pool. I forgot to mention in my post yesterday that I used a lot of pink and brown Tulle and ribbon to lace the banner pieces together.

Happy Birthday Banner


So have I ever told you all how much I LOVE pink and brown...ooh and cupcakes too.
Maybe because pink and brown are sooo girly..and I have no girls...only boys for me, or maybe its because  the colors pink and brown look so beautiful together. Well might see me use a lot of pink and brown on my projects. This birthday banner was made with Tie the knot, Sweet treats
 for the cupcakes, and Don Juan for the letters. Cardsock is from Bazzill and the assorted patterned paper are from Joanne's. I just love it when the paper goes on sale 5 for a dollar.
I am entering this in the Fantabulous Cricut challenge which is a "Happy Birthday" project.
I will be posting pictures of the rest of the banner soon, so please come back and visit. I love new followers.
