Missing in Action

Well I am sad to say I have been missing in action for a few months it seems like.  I recently was promoted at work and it has been very hectic with hiring a new department, kids starting school, going on vacation and everythig...you know normal liffe things that happen.  Well on to the craft item I was able to do ......

My oldest participated in Track this past spring in Jr. High for the first time.  I wanted to make a display of all his ribbons he received.

I started with this that I got on clearance at Kohls for $5...Can you believe it.
I took the mat out and created my own with blue paper..very simple
His coach in Track wrote down all his times and attached to sticky note on the ribbons he received throughout the track season.  I then in turn put them on labels and stuck them to the ribbon.  On th relay ribbons I put the names of the kids on the back.  This way Alex would always have that information.
This is what it turned out like.  I really like the way it looks!
I also framed his Track Team picture to go with it....now I
just need to hang it!!!

 Thanks for looking!!! Keep on Crafting!!!
