Banners are still very popular in the scrapbooking world. I love banners myself but I decided to go with a slightly different point of view for my layout. I only used a single panel, turned it sideways, and used it as a placeholder for my pictures. Another neat way to use banners is to hold your journaling.
I used several older Noel Mignon kits as well as some items from my stash to put this layout together. What fun ways have you used banners? Share it with us and put a link to your layout in the comments section.
