Family Blessings Top Note Banner







I have been working on this Family Blessings all week, a little here and there. I am very disappointed that my pictures are so "dull", but thats how it is here outside...gloomy and dull!

I made this for an entry into the creative section on So Shelli's blog.....but I wish you could see it "in person" as it is so much more colorful and nicer "in person" :( !!!
But, at least I have it up and it it beautiful hanging on my mantel. That Top Note Die, well, I am going to have it worn out, I use it almost everyday!! I just love it!! I used "On Board" chipboard for the letters, sanded them, added some of the SU embelishments, and used my all time favorite paper from the SU Holiday mini catty "Autumn Vine".
For the "challenge" we were to say what we are thankful for...wow...there is so much I am thankful for that I wouldn't have room to list it all, so that is why I chose "Family Blessings" to do, as I am most thankful for my wonderful family, I am hoping to place several "family" photos behind the banner on my mantel for all to enjoy!
You can see Shelli's blog here if you would like to visit and see all the other entries.
