This blog hop is all about love themed ideas..

I {heart} banners, and have been wanting to make one for a while now. Here's what I started with:

And here is what it turned into, with a LOT of help from my Gypsy...


I added ribbon, twine, silver pom poms, and two types of tulle.
(I'm addicted! I have already started on my "St. Patty's Day" banner!)
