Birthday Week giveaway!..

Hello Friends.  We have started mid-semester school holidays here in Queensland and life has just become extra busy!  Mum?  Can we cook... paint... play computer... etc.. etc.. The crazy thing is, as soon as we hit school holidays, well... it starts to rain.  And all activities are moved inside.  yikes.


But rainy days also mean I can do a little creating while the kids are snuggled up on the couch watching a favourite movie.  :)

Greatest View has also started the school holidays by celebrating BIRTHDAY WEEK!  And I have to ask... Are you interested in a giveaway?  I'll let you think about that while I share my Greatest View project.  :)

Birthday Week gave me the opportunity to scrap some photos from Miss T's 12th birthday last month.  sigh.  It feels good to be on top of something like that!  LOL!!  I don't know how long it will last, considering Cam turns three next week!!!!

{Birthday Wishes}

products used: cs - kraft, stampin' up; pp - kaisercraft, crate paper; GV - Happy Birthday badges, Definition badges - birthday, Triple Pearl stick pin, ivory twine; other - Elle's Studio journal card, Manor House: flower & leaves,  kaisercraft: paper bloom & clear stamp, machine stitchine, typewriter, ink: Tim Holtz distress ink, close to the heart.

I've played with the badges to created a banner of sorts and added the ivory twine to back up the idea.  I also wanted my layout to have a whimsical feel to it.  Afterall, my 12 year old was wearing a tiara and enjoying every minute of sparkler fun!





So, how about that giveaway?  Would you like to have the chance to win the birthday badges that are featuring on the GREATEST VIEW blog all week as well as a sampler of small chevron bags and a couple of metres of coordination chevron ribbon, simply leave a comment on >>>>this<<< post and tell us if YOU use banners in your projects!

The giveaway will run all week so come back each day for more chances to win! The winner will be announced Monday July 1st.


Good luck!  And thanks for visiting..x

Hi Leanne - I use banners on my School LO's and I used one recently on a Christmas LO. I use them often to place my title on. Love your LO especially the gorgeous pics. x
