Challenge Heaven August Challenge : Word

This is my LO for the Challange Heaven August word challenge. The criteria was use the word 'two' and a banner/bunting. I really have been thinking about Elijah growing up so fast lately so I wanted to do a LO that reflected my feelings about that. I kept it simple as it was the sentiment I wanted to shine through : ) I used My Minds Eye (quite contrary), Cosmo Cricket (earth love), October Afternoon (night light - Katie) & The Girls Paperie (on holiday) pp's. Basic grey brads. Bazzil Kraft CS and I got the little pegs from an Ebay shop called Brads & Beyond.....

So here is my LO......nice and simple : )

Made two flowers from tiny doilies, distressed paper circles & buttons. I attached those to folded paper that I stapled to some corrugated cardboard.

The photo is made to look like it's hanging on a washing line (which I hope counts as a bunting/banner).

And here's the most important part of this page.....the journalling. It explains the sentiment of the photo and the title "Two Pegs"

Thankyou so much for having a gander at my LO : )
