I wanted to post these before I went on my stamping weekend. I hope you enjoy them. The first pic is of my Aunt and her late husband 2 years ago when we visited. We missed the funeral but I made this layout for a frame that I would mail to her. I love the colors.
The banner is made with chipboard coasters. Just glued down the paper, added a few embellishments (but kept it simple) and the ribbon. The ribbon is actually glued between two coasters (one long piece for strength).
