Photo Banners and Pictures

I often feel like I'm pretty much caught up with my photos and scrapbooking, but occassionally I will find a folder of pictures that I totally forgot about that.  That was the case with these pictures on my layout today.  Last year for Austin's birthday, we went miniature golfing.  I took a bunch of pictures, and even though none of them really turned out super, I wanted to use a bunch of them.  So the layout I am sharing today has 9 photos on it.  :)

I did it for the Chevron challenge on the BasicGrey blog.  I simply created my own chevron design with paper and stiching, but I also used a cool chevron border sticker from BG.

All the papers and embellishments are from the What's Up? collection from Basic Grey.

Here's my layout:

I did something different, and when I printed my photos, I just cut them in strips and cut a banner edge on one side.

I still really LOVE this collection...it is just so FUN!  :)

Here are some close up's:






Well we just got back from a trip to meet my new niece! She is beautiful. I thought I'd share some photos from our trip too. :) 

We stopped at a few fun sites along the way and really made it a road trip.  

At Golden Spike:



At Shoshone Falls:





At Malad Gorge:





And then meeting their new cousin:





It was a pretty good trip!

Thanks for stopping in today!!! I so appreciate you...YOU make me feel like I am not talking to myself. :) 

Have a wonderful day!
