it's no secret that i adore my lovely blogging friend amy tsuruta. if you're reading this, and you're a paper-crafting blogger, most likely *YOU* adore my lovely blogging friend amy tsuruta, as well. she's that kinda gal!!!
so it is a bit of a shame and an embarrassment to me how INFREQUENTLY i play along with her awesome flashback friday challenges! she's up to #17 and i've maybe done like three, how PATHETIC am i??! but the truth is, most of the time i either just plain do not remember what my first (place category here) was; ...or... worse yet, it was from my pre-blogging days, when i posted to a gallery that no longer exists, and i cannot easily access the photo i would need. both of those totally bum me out.
but this week when i read the brief: re-post your first banner, i actually knew EXACTLY when i'd made mine, AND i blogged about it! CHA-CHING!!! i can play!!! :) :) :)
so here it is, my "riley" banner, made for the eponymous niece's 8th birthday in 2010 (ok, so admittedly not that impressive of a "flashback"!) and my original blog post (which has close-up photos of each letter/pennant) is right here! YAHOO!!!!!! :)
and now please join me in (slightly belatedly) wishing
a very happy fourth blogiversary!!!
t'internet would not be nearly as cool--or as friendly--without you, missus!
