Xyron and Quick Quotes - Day Two!

What a great response we had yesterday - seems like I'm not the only one who is ready for Fall!  :) Today I am excited to show you how versatile Quick Quotes' patterned papers can be.  Linda Abadie, one of Xyron's DT members, and I got the same pack of paper to work with, and I was totally blown away with what she created and how differently we used the papers.  So first I'll show you my banner:

  6. I'm thinking of doing a banner of my name, with each letter a diffferent color, in my craftroom. Maybe just easier to use a solid background and a print Letter, or vice versa I dunno - but I do love banners !
