Fun with Banners {Bo Bunny Design Team}

Banners have been a fun new design element in the past couple of years....and Bo Bunny challenged some of us design team members to create a layout with banners! 

 I chose to use some of the ready made layered chipboard banners from the C'est La Vie collection as well as some banner pieces from the patterned paper.

I also used some of those cute coordinating blossoms that Bo Bunny put out last year.  I used the Blush Daisy collection and a couple of the blooms from the Blush Bouquet collection as well.

Do you like the pretty flourishes I used on the two photos above?  Well, here's a little secret, just between you and me.....Cheery Lynn Designs Die Cuts asked me to be their guest designer in September and I got a bunch of their gorgeous dies in the mail a few days ago!   I just couldn't resist giving them a little try before then so I cut out a couple of the flourishes 'Fanciful Flourish'.  I just LOVE them!  They're so fine and delicate!  I thought I might have a hard time getting them out of the die's because they are so delicate, but they popped out easy-peasy!  Must be some sort of special design :)  I can't wait to share more with you in September!

Very beautiful! I love your little secret...can't wait to read more in September :) I love the banners and the twine; just wondering how do you attach the twine to the page? Do you use glue gun or other adhesive?
