Family--pink paislee banners

okay, I just have to tell you I LOVE the starlight collection from Pink Paislee, I was super excited to see that we had a bit of the collection in the July kit from Scrapbook Circle:
I wanted to show you what I did with the banner stickers on the sheet. I obviously used them to make the title. What was tricky was how do I use them with out using them as a sticker?
If you look really close in this picture you will see that I backed them with paper (scraps from the kit) I then trimmed them right up next to the scallop. I then used my paper piercer to poke holes in the corners to string my bakers string. I then measured how long the title would be and using my x-acto knife I poked holes for my brads. Then I put the string in between the prongs and put them through the holes.

One more side note these are my brothers with me. Aren't they handsome? We took this at Easter--LOVE that we took the opportunity to take this. My challenge to you-take the opportunity to take the shots when you have them! Like my friend Claude says, "Life is not a race. Take it slower. Hear the music before the song is over."
Thanks for stopping by!
