A New Garland for the Fourth of July

Here it is!  The completed banner for the Fourth of July.
I started with these pennants that I found at Pottery Barn.

This picture of my Great Aunt Maybelle was my inspiration for the first pennant.  She was 15 when this picture was taken circa 1900.

The other pennants were put together using K & Company embellishments, things I had around the house, and trims from my favorite scrapbooking store, Vintage Melrose.

Ta Da!

Not perfect, but not too shabby, either, eh?

I need to improve my photography skills or invest in a new (expensive!) camera!
