Back to school banner

I am co-chair of Hadley's school's PTA hospitality committee now- what does that mean? I get to make cute banners like this! please disregard the view beyond!
we also filled those bags I stamped & will have them all ready to go for the first day of school for the staff...
Here's a couple of close-ups (minus the background!). I used PTI aqua mist for the banner base, creative memories red (diecut with cricut & embossed with PTI letters palte). The pencils are Cosmo Cricket (from the boyfriend- thansk Sav for reminding me I had this paper!). The 'ruler' paper is Cosmo Cricket material girl.
Some May Arts 3/16" grosgrain/stripes to hang it on & machine stitching around the pennants with letters.
In other news of things that 'rule'- Hadley lost her first tooth! She pulled that bugger out on her own-probably a few days early! (she is her mama's daughter!!) She looks so grown up with her sassy hair & missing tooth!
I'll add this to Wee Memories 'back to school' challlenge:
As well as the ribbon carousel challenge to use 2 or more 'spooled' items- thread counts! :D
Thanks so much for stopping by- I'd love to hear what you think!

  12. OHHHH! I cannot believe I haven't had a chance to stop by you blog in weeks! And I missed out on THIS amazing banner! WOOWOWOWOWOWOW! I loooove the paper (of course!) and I love how your letters are embossed! Makes them pop--FABULOUSLY done! Stitching on them too--you really went all out! TOTALLY worth it:) LOVE LOVE LOVE!

    as for the tooth--oh! Freaks me out! When I was teaching, I would cover my eyes when the kids would bring me their teeth. I don't know why--anything with teeth (brushing them, commercials with toothpaste, pulling teeth) FREAK me out! But congrats to Hadley either way:)
