It's A Banner Monday!!

It's time to think Spring on this Banner Monday. Guess what that means? It's a Banner challenge this week over on the Little Scraps of Heaven Design Team blog. We have some wonderful examples to show you, so be sure to run right over and check them out! Here is mine.

I'm so in LOVE with it I can hardly contain myself! lol I used many different files to create it. Here's a close up of each letter and I'll tell you which files I used to make it. First up the "S". I used the Boy on a tire swing and for the tree Boy on a limb. 

The letter "P". I used the squirrel from the Gnome in my Garden set. For the cloud I used the Angel Bear with Ribbon pattern. It doesn't show the cloud in the picture but trust me this cute little bear is sitting on a cloud. 

The letter "R", I used the Great Outdoors collection for the fire, the rocks and the body of the girl. In the pattern she is a moose. I used the Girl on a Swing for the head and hat of the little girl.

The letter "I". I used the flowers from the barrel in the Gnome in my Garden set. 

The letter "N". I used the rabbit from the barrel in the Gnome in my Garden set, along with the sign. The grass and boulder are from The Great Outdoors collection. The red bird on this letter and on the "P" are from the Storybook series Red Riding Hood

And finally the letter "G". I used the Gnome in my Garden set for the little deer, the rocks ad grass are from The Great Outdoors and the sun is a single pattern called Happy Sun.

I had such a good time creating this banner. My son even complimented me on it. For a 14 year old to say "Hey Mom, your spring thing is really cute." means so much. It's currently hanging in our living room off the mantle. I hope you find inspiration in all our banners on the DT blog. We'd love to see what you come up with. For all the challenge details please visit the DT blog. You could win $20 in free patterns from Little Scraps of Heaven Designs. 

Have a Banner Monday!
