A patched together lifestyle of thrift and charm...

A Thrifty Valentine Banner...

Sometimes I chuckle at us bloggers... we've  never really 
grown up.  The cutting and pasting we did in kindergarten?  
Yep - still doing it...
We're even still tearing pages out of books -
 I'm thinking that goes back to before kindergarten...


But it's all good wholesome fun and hopefully we're a 
little neater with our paper projects than we were back then.  
This super easy banner really needs no explanation -
but I'll share a few things.  First - I used what was on hand.
The pennant shape I 'guess' measured and cut out 
with scissors and paper cutter.  
The dictionary pages were sized to fit. 
 I used black craft paint and a stencil for the letters. 
(Not as perfect - but cheaper than printing out solid letters on your computer).  
 The red hearts?  A leftover Christmas paper napkin that 
was laying on the table I was working on - so why not?
 And of course - a ribbon for hanging.
 And by the way - we can count on it that love never does fail.  
Have a relationship that could use some improving?  Try love!

And my photo challenge word for today?
'Looking Up'...
