Paper Playtime - Summer Banner

Happy Monday!  I'm back :)  If you are looking for the mini album I made for Cardz TV anything goes challenge, click HERE.  If you are looking for my Exploring Cricut Disney project, click HERE.  Today is challenge day over at Paper Playtime.  It is the 5th Monday of the month, so it is a one week Anything Goes Challenge.  Here is what I came up with:

I made a spring banner, which you can see HERE and the kids loved it!  I decided that I needed to make a summer banner.  I think it turned out really cute!

The suns I used for the base of each piece of the banner, are all from Create a Critter.  They are cut at 6 inches, and I welded  small circles to the top of each sun for the ribbon.  The yellow and pink papers are from Bazzil and the black is Recollections.

The letters I chose are from Cutting Up.  I cut them at 3 inches.  The crab is cut at 1.75 inches and castle is cut at 2 inches.  They are both from Create a Critter (CAC)- I love that cartridge :)

The beach ball is cut at 3 inches and is from Simply Charmed (SC), another super cute cartridge!

The kite iscut at 3.1 inches on my Gypsy girl, and is from Create a Critter.

The popsicle is cut at 2.8 inches and is from SC and the cutie fire cut at 2 inches from CAC.

The bucket and pail is cut at 3 inches from SC.

The palm tree is cut at 2.6 inches from CAC.  I doodled on everything with my Sakura Jelly Roll pens, and ran a ribbon through all the circles and VOILA!  A cutie summer banner.

We have a prize for one lucky participant this week.  They will win a $10 gift certificate for cut files from The Creative Pointe.  LUCKY!

I hope you all pop over to Paper Playtime, see what the DT came up with, and play along with us :)
