Way back on May 21, at Practical Scrappers, Lisa designed this really sweet sketch, I especially loved it because I am so totally into banners right now. Unfortunately I didn't get a layout done to play along with that sketch challenge, so I decided to use it for this eyelet challenge. Lisa's sketch looks like this (see above) (just in case you missed it at the Practical Scrappers blog). Isn't it great!!??!! Yep, I thought so too!
Okay so a lot of metal went into the making of this layout for sure! I not only pulled out all the eyelets stops, I stapled in some metal too with Tim Holt's tiny attacher. You can buy one for yourself right here. I used patterned paper from two of my favorites, The Girls' Paperie and October Afternoon and my Cricut got a work out with the Mickey Mouse font to create my "Puddle Jumper" title and the stars. And hey, don't forget about those eyelets I put everywhere I could think of to put 'em, they are from We R Memory Keepers Toasty Tin collection. Add to all that the double-cute photos of my sweet puddle jumping grandson and you got a finished layout that made me oh, so happy. I mean, cute kid, handmade banner AND banner paper, what more could a banner-loving gal like me what from a layout? :-)
