Fussy and Fancy DT: Summer Theme

Well, another Friday is here, and you know what that means!  That's right!  Another challenge over at Fussy and Fancy.  This week, we have a summer theme.  I chose to go a slightly different way from a card this week.  I made a Freedom Banner for a friend to celebrate the Fourth of July holiday and I thought this would be a perfect week to showcase it!  The design for the banner is one from Laura over at FollowingthePaperTrail.  If you haven't checked her out, you need to!  Her work is absolutely amazing - the things she can do from paper is unbelieveable!  I chose this design because not only did I want my friend to have a banner to celebrate the summer holiday, but also a place to put some special photos illustrating the celebration over the years.  This design worked out perfectly!  The majority of the paper is from Bo Bunny with a few pieces from Magnolia mixed in.  I used my cricut to cut the circles and the word "FREEDOM".  I then added pleated ribbon around each circle for a dimensional look.  Each piece of the banner was tied together with some ribbon through the holes I punched with my Crop-a-Dile.  I apologize for the poor quality of the picture.  I'm having Camera woes once again - How I miss my awesome Cannon with a scratch in the lens.  May my poor camera rest in peace!!!!  Anyway, I hope you can get enough from this pictue to catch the gist of my Summer Banner/Mini Album!  Can't wait to see your summer creations over at Fussy and Fancy this week!!!
