Tis Done!

Hi everyone,

Here's my April project all done and dusted almost two weeks before the deadline.
I decided to make my banner long and skinny by turning everything on its side. This was so that it could hang in various small spaces.



What a fun little project.
I love all the finished banners I'm seeing on the blog. Congratulations to everyone who has finished April so far.

Margaret
