Newsflash - SOUS Diecut Challenge "Create a Banner"

Hello there!
This week's Stuck On U Sketches diecut challenge was to "Create a Banner". And being a hockey mom, my brain went immediately to a sports banner.  And as luck would have it, my son was recently in the local newspaper for hockey. So, why not combine the two???
Papers: Bo Bunny, Echo Park; Embellishments: Echo Park, Teresa Collins, American Crafts,
Tim Holtz, Distress Ink, Jute, typewriter

A while ago, I signed up for the Art Class by Wilna Furstenberg over at 2Peas. Such an incredible class!  The black paper with the doodles is a technique from the class where I painted a piece of cardstock with blackboard paint and then doodled over it with a white gel pen. I really like how it frames the newspaper article.

Since newspaper deteriorates so quickly, I scanned and printed it on acid free cardstock. This allowed me to resize it as well, since the article was quite large.

The banner is a Two Peas In a Bucket cut file. It originally said "Right Now" but I wanted to use this as my title, so I changed the words to "Newsflash".  The remainder of the banners are just hand cut. 

And since Nick has been in the paper a few times already, I thought I should have a place to keep them all. So, I decided to make a pocket page with the leftovers. The pages are kind of a double spread, but not really.

Here are the two pages side by side as they will appear in the album.

So, now it's your turn. Be sure to check out the SOUS blog and see all the beautiful banners the ladies have created. And we'd love to see the banners you create!
