Decorating for Valentines hasn't always been high on my priority list, but this year I've made a little extra effort because it's Kristina & Joe's first wedding anniversary.
I've been experimenting with different banners
because I wanted to give them one for their first anniversary
This one isn't theirs,
but I might show you the one I made for them later on.
Why didn't this one make the cut?
I liked it, except when I painted the card stock with chalkboard paint it curled up and didn't look as perfect as I wanted it to.
(for them anyway)
in case you're wondering ... Kristina is our daughter
This experimental banner ended up above our headboard.
We've been wanting to hang something there,
and as it's turned out
This Banner Looks Just Perfect
if you squint your eyes
We're Just A Couple Of Romantics!
Have you looked at the heart candies this year?
They say things like
I even found one that said
gave it to Buzz & said
"now this is what you say when I give you my Honey Do list"
Then he found the one that said...
It Was Pure Romance!
Thank You Richella for featuring my
"Bee Mine Banner"

Geneva, I think the banner is just LOVE-ly! The chalkboard paint is a clever idea. Darn, I need to slow down and read my conversation hearts. Have popped a few in my mouth without even giving them a glance. Who knew they had new sentiments. Get real is too, too funny! Thanks for sharing with SYC.ReplyDelete

That banner looks just perfect over your bed, Geneva. What a touching gift that will be for an anniversary. (And don't talk about Conversation Hearts... I've been scarfing them down for the past two weeks!)ReplyDelete
