I shared many layouts in a previous post of my sons on their farm visit; here is another layout, this time using the HORSE shape...have included a close-up of the frame of the FLAG BANNER which I decided to include as a border strip ...cut a small piece out to fit the horse in.....and then did some hand stitching which I don't normally do but it did need something and I really liked the result. I love the flag banner and its versatility ...I put brads in the holes and wound black string around them to connect them, then stapled to secure to page.

Thanks for visiting! Have a great day:)

Am happy that all worked out in the end and I hope those of you who joined in, had much fun hopping along with the A2Z Scraplets Blog Hop. Once I had unpacked and got on top of things at home, I sat back with a cuppa and read all your lovely comments- thanks so much!!
The lucky winner is Trish:
"Yay Monica, I love your work. I love the colours the scraplets and the flowers. Absolutely Beautiful. Thanks." and another one from Trish:
"I am here for the blog hop too- Monica your layouts are beautiful. I enjoyed viewing your work, Thanks."
Congrats Trish -your prize will be mailed soon!

I thoroughly enjoy scrapbooking my sons' school photos so when I saw Scrap the Boys challenge, scrapping school photos, I was delighted! Such a sweet trip down memory lane and there are so many inspirational collections to use...I especially like Kaisercraft Class of '87.
