February Monthly Circle Challenge Entry

This months challenge on the Cricut Circle is "Banners"!

Banners are everywhere! We love their versatility and the way they can be customized for any occasion. For this challenge, we want you to create a banner with any theme you would like.

I always make the decorations for Faiths cake because she always wants Dora. This challenge helped me quickly come to the conclusion that I would use banners!! I quickly made up a scrapbook page to use the banners left over from her cake from the party this weekend to display them on the blog.

 Don't look at the cake! Just the decorations on the cake. :-)  It looked cuter in person and the number kept falling over because the cake was so moist it wouldn't hold it up. So we put it on the front! But I wanted you to see the banners on the cake! Faith said "its awesome, Nana!" making all the time I put into it worth it. The Imagine made it pretty quick actually once I figured out what I was going to do. I used Blast off Imagine Art Cart for all of the cuts. I used MS All Occasions Cake Art Cart for the balloons and the "Faith" banner, welding it on the Gypsy to make it 5 banners long. Birthday Bash was used for the large pink banner and Blast Off was also used for the "happy birthday" letters and patterns. That cart is great for birthdays. I made them all double sided! that's why 1 of the banners is on the right side of the page also! The colors are and patterns are awesome! Of course, I cuttlebugg'd with Swiss dots and Allegro!
Thanks for stopping by! and wish me luck on the Cricut Circle Monthly challenge. The prize is a big bundle of Imagine Carts. I have a couple of them, but would love to have all of them in the bundle!
