Birthday Banner....... Autumn's 1st Birthday

Good Evening,
Friday was my sweet baby Autumn's first birthday. I am so excited to share some pictures today from her little celebration!! I had planned to make so much more for her but my budget was limited so I kept it simple!! But I made my very first birthday banner, it was not as hard as I thought it was going to be. I got the idea from the queen of banners Ruthie, September Ninth, all of her banners are always AMAZING!!! I used the Lite Sugar Spice Cartridge for the banner bases cut at 5" and used the adorable Nana's Nursery Baby Girl 12x12 Stack by DCWV for the paper. The scalloped circles cut at 3" and I used white paper by Recollections. Then I ran the circles through the sizzix swirl embossing folder. I cut the letters from Plantin Schoolbook cut at 1.75" and then I added the cute little owls cut at 2" from the Create a Critter Cartridge. I ran ribbon through the top to connect the banner, I really love how it turned out!!!!!!!! I also made some fun owl cupcakes. I















Sorry to bore you with all of my pictures of my sweet little girl but I just had to share our little party.

Happy first birthday, baby Autumn!! I hope you grow up to be as cute and crafty as your Mommy, so you can make her a Happy Mommy's Day banner in return! (-:

Cristi, what's truly special about your banner is that you can simply update the 1-s-t flags to read 2-n-d and 3-r-d, and so on. Cherish it!

She is absolutely beautiful!!! And obviously having the time of her life!! I really love your banner. I've seen a lot of other "flag" (triangle shaped) banners, and I like yours so much better, much softer shape!! Thanks for sharing.
