Lake decorations for birthday at work

Hello! I live in Tennessee and I grew up near the Tennessee River/Kentucky lake. I spent most of my summer fishing and swimming in the lake there. It's a little city called New Johnsonville. I just loved it. My friend Heather's family has a lake house in Paris, TN and she and her family have had a great time out there. She's not a river rat like me, but thats were she goes to get away. When her birthday came up this year, I knew what I wanted to do for her. So, I cut out all the lake/summer images I could with my cricut explore. I made a banner that hung over her desk and 3d trees to stand around her desk. I also cut out lakes using a paper that looked like waves and had that around the trees. Another coworker added shredded paper for a grass look. Another friend added shells. I think it looked pretty cute. Some of the trees were cut with glitter paper and I used the wood grain stamp from the path finding card making kit to stamp the faux wood grain. The trees with the brown trunks had a tire swing and were not supposed to stand, but I just cut two bases with my explore and cut slits in them and put them together so the base would stand. The banner has flip flops and little round summer themed stamped images along with a lake scene and then I stamped and water colored sailboat to look on the lake. We do get some sailboats on the lake here. This is the same friend, Heather, that I made the sign language happy birthday card for. It just took me awhile to get her office decor post up. Her birthday was 8/18 and we decorated the Friday morning before so she had her decorations early since the 18th was on a Sunday. Hope you enjoy!
