Christmas Photo Banner

I had so much fun doing the Pile It On challenge last week that I had to do it again this week. This time I decided to do something other than a card. So, I came up with this vertical photo banner. I had some great pictures of my kids with Santa Clause and I wanted to display them.



The challenges I played along with this week are:
Pile It On:Tinsel Town (Glitter)
Cupcake Craft Challenge: Christmas Carol
Kaboodle Doodle: Snowflakes
Practical Scrappers: Anything Christmas
The Pink Elephant: your favorite Christmas color combo
To complete this project I made the layouts digitally using Scrapbook Max and the Merry Kissmas set from Melissa Bennett. I punched a snowflake (Martha Stewart) from the edge of the layouts and filled it with glitter (Art Glitter in Crystal) using the glitter and tape technique (see how here). Then I adhered the punched out snowflake to the layout with a pearl (Martha Stewart) in the middle of it. I matted each layout in Chocolate cardstock (from Close to my Heart) sprayed with Glimmer Mist (from Tattered Angels) in Cherub Pink. The ribbon is a satin edged wired shimmer organdy ribbon (floral department of Hobby Lobby). I ran it between the layouts and the mats and made a loop at the top to hang the banner from. I then used the same ribbon to tie a bow around the hanging loop.
I know its kind of difficult to see in the photos, the quality is not the best, but the colors I used are lt. pink, lt blue, lt. green and lt. red.
Thanks for looking!
