My husband was so funny he looked at it sitting on the table and came downstairs before the party to make sure I didn't mess it up. "Honey, " he says "Is that an A." Yes....well...kinda" I said. Walking away he mumbles, "OH?! OK?!" I thought it was cute because he could care less about stamped things but this one was for HIS BABY!!! The story behind the backwards G subtitled for an A .....I lost it at a Gifts Galore a few years back and since the alpha is a little quirky anyway I have improvised and used the G. It works for me! I cut out all kinds of birds and flowers to put on the banner from the big shot dies and I ran out of time. So it plain but still really cute.

During my crazy weekend we went to my oldest son's baseball game followed by my middle sons football game. Then, Sunday I had a Scrap booking class. This was the double page layout we did for the class. All the ladies in attendance chose their "team" color as the 4th accent color. Sorry, I don't have all of the pictures on it yet.
The filmstrip was a big hit and the pennant was a cool mistake. I was punching the stars out of the layout and found out that if you cut a 1/4 strip of paper you can put the top into the point of the large star punch and you get a perfect V in the pennant. Cool, huh?
