It’s the 10th day of the month, so I’ve gathered my creative blogging friends, and we came up with a PASTEL theme to create projects around, since SPRING is upon us! This begins our 11th month with this collaboration. We had so much fun with it the past 10 months, we decided to take it another round. Also, we’ve added the amazingly talented Chelsea from Two Twenty One to the mix. If you’ve missed the past ten months of fun, please check them out!
For now, get into the spring mode with PASTELS!

Now for my quick Spring Banner project:
Initially I had intended to make a polaroid banner with some of my favorite instagram pictures of the boys. But then as the project started coming along, I decided to save those photos for something else I have in mind and create a “Spring” banner instead. I found these rad wooden polaroid shaped frames in the scrapbooking section at Michaels. First, I painted all the frames in different Spring colors. Then I backed each frame with a different scrapbook paper. Next, I used these punchboard letter sticks to spell out the word “spring” on each of the polaroids. I used hot glue and twine to create a banner. Then I strung it through this super nifty banner stand that a dear friend whipped up for me. She has power tools so she creates fun wood projects all the time. She used 2 wooden plaques and 2 small dowels (both found at Michaels)–then she drilled a hole in the plaque the size of the dowel and attached them. Then she drilled a teeny tiny hole in the top of the dowel for the string to go through. Now I can switch out the banner for any holiday or special occasion.
