Hi! My name is Amy from http://www.amyscrapspot.blogspot.com/ (Where Scrappin' Happins!) and this is the first project I have ever entered into a challenge!!
On Thursday June 24th I decided that I was finally going to try making my first banner. The fact that July 4th is right around the corner helped, a LOT!

I used my CTMH AP Cricut cartridge to cut everything that you see. I love working with these colors! I was able to use the same shade papers, inks, embossing, it was GREAT! A lot of work but well worth it! I am not usually one to want everything uniform, as you can see I kind of like it funky! Scrapping 2 boys usually seems to fit with that lopsided look. Almost as if they are bouncing on my page. =) The B&T paper I chose, Superhero, really spoke to me for this project! All the little stars on one side and strips on the other! How perfect can it get?!

All and all, as my first banner, I have to say it looks pretty neat! I put as many pics side by side as I could. =). (Sorry for the glare, had to take it to work to get pics)

I pretty much got this off of my Blog, If this isn't my Bio I don't know what is. =) I am a single mom of 2 amazing and active boys. I work full time and became a CTMH Independent Consultant since approx January 2012. I am really enjoying getting to know the products and finding that I have more imagination and creativity then I thought! With my boys I have PLENTY of inspiration and pictures to keep me busy for a long long time! For the past 7 years all of my pictures have just sat on CD or in a box and that really made me sad! I love taking pictures and what a waste! Since finding CTMH that has all changed! NOW I can show off my pictures in Style, MY style! What's better then THAT!?

Thank you very much!

Now it's your turn! Go here to see the details for these last days of June to also submit your take on the June challenge!
