Welcome Home

I am a homeschool mom so I very rarely get away from my kids, and they very rarely get away from me. Well, my oldest was gone for about 5 days. That is the longest she has ever been away from home. Her younger siblings have missed her so much and are waiting impatiently for her to arrive home. Anyways, to welcome her home we made a pennant banner and hung it across her dresser mirror for when she gets home! This is my first time ever making one of these, so it is not the greatest but I don't think I did to bad. Also, it was my first time to make a crepe paper/party streamer rosette, not to bad on those either. I think with those, the more I did them the better I got. The funny thing was she did not see it as soon as she came into her room.  We must have looked odd standing there waiting for her to notice.  She said later that she noticed we were just standing in her room with an odd look on our faces and so she started looking around to see what we did!  LOL   To funny!  Glad we didn't have to wait to long!  She loved it and it is still hanging there.  We all really missed her and her joyful personality that she brings into our home.  I am so glad she made it home safely and yet had a great time while she was away.

Plantain Schoolbook Cricut cartridge for the circles
Simply Sweet Cricut cartridge For the flower cuts
Stand and Salute Cricut cartridge  for the Pennant shapes
K&Company Life's Journey Designer Paper
K&Company Amy butler Designer paper

Pre cut letter from my stash

I hope you have a great day!
