JOY Christmas Banner

How was your weekend blogging friends???
Did you get any great bargains while you were out
shopping? Or did you avoid the crowds all together and stay home?
 I went out to one store and picked up a couple of things I wanted at
a great price. My sweet hubby is giving them to me for
Christmas :o)

Today I have a great Christmas banner I made for the house,
but my DD1 stole it for her office! I used a Maya Road coaster
album as the base and added lots of other stuff,,,
Sorry this photo is a little out of focus,, my DSLR was in the shop and I had to use my point and shoot for these photos :(   The close ups are much better!
So,, I used the Snowflake Coaster album from Maya Road. For this piece I made a ruffle from vintage sheet music for behind the chipboard, and added a stack of flowers.
This one has a rosette made with a Tim Holtz die, pearls, twine and a jewelry charm.
Lots of glitter, another jewelry charm, acrylic snowflake and 
chipboard heart adorn this center snowflake.
Another rosette, pearls, twine, and lace for this one. 
The last one is a pretty close cousin of the first one. 
I added LOTS of ribbons to finish it off. 

This project was made for a DT call,,(which I am super happy to say I was picked for!!), and
 I will have a tutorial on all the details soon. 

I am linking up to the following challenges:
City Crafter Challenges Blog - I'll Be Home For Christmas

and have a wonderful weekend!
