Bekah's Banner

Good morning everyone!  I hope that your morning looks as beautiful outside as it does here!  I apologize for the long pause between posts here on my blog.  As many of you know, my daughter Hannah is going through some health issues and tests to find out what is causing them.  So haven't had much creative "mojo" as my friend Geordie would say (luv ya G).  However, making a banner for my younger daughter Rebekah, came to mind when I was taking out the new comforter she bought for her new room! My son is moving out in a few days and Bekah is getting the room.

I want to have it fixed up nice for her. So, I thought I would start by creating a name banner!  This is really only the second time I have created a banner.  I had so much fun making a Halloween one for a swap on LSH.  I am very easily addicted to anything to do with paper!  :o)

I used paper from the Basic Grey collection Infuse, to cover the chipboard pendants.  Then I inked the edges with some of Tim Holtz Distress Ink in Vintage Photo and topped them all with some pretty sequin white lace and I Am Roses.  The paper collection and letters for her name came from a set that was in my Largest RAK Ever and are Tim Holtz Idea-ology Grungeboard.  I sprayed them with some Lindys Stamp Gang Hottie Patottie Hot Pink and homemade mist I made with Matallic Rose acrylic paint.

On each end of the banner, I punched a hole with my Crop-A-Dile and added pink lace, rikrak, and some fibers I also received in a RAK.  

I am very pleased with how it turned out.  My Bekah boo loves it!  What do you think?

Thanks for stopping in!  Enjoy!

God bless you all and your families!
