Beach Party Challenge at Decorate To Celebrate -- BUBBLES for everyone!! :)

Goooooood evening,  my fabulous friends!!  I'm so glad you stopped by to visit today!!  Yesterday was the start of another BRAND NEW challenge over at the Decorate To Celebrate! Challenge Blog...  Have you been checking out the challenges there???  At DTC, we want to see your party supplies, your decorations, and everything else that goes along with a celebration -- You can enter any project -- yard signs, banners, cupcake toppers (even the cupcakes themselves!), centerpieces, and more (as long as it's not a card or layout)!!  I always have such fun with these challenges as they really make me think outside the box...  I invite you to hop on over there and check out the challenges -- You can see a list of the upcoming challenges HERE!!  :)

Okay, so for this challenge we were asked to create a project for a BEACH PARTY!!  Who doesn't want to have a BEACH PARTY???  Even if you don't live near the beach, you can still have a party filled with SUN and FUN!!  :)  I decided to start the celebration off by creating some Bubble Party Favors...
The dollar store is great for all kinds of goodies that you can re-purpose into all sorts of fun party supplies!!  I purchased these bubbles (3/$1) with the intention of removing the "generic" labels and replacing them with festive, pretty labels!!
I embossed the 2.25"x6" new "labels" with Cuttlebugs "Polka Dot" embossing folder and added some faux stitching before adhering them securely to the bottles...  I punched a 1.5" circle to cover the top of the bottle and wrapped a 1/2"x5.5" strip around the bottle cap (both also embossed) since it was white and looks much prettier as pink!!  :)
I punched circles (.75", 1", 1.25", and 1.5"), inked the edges, and added a highlight with my white Signo pen to create bubbles...  The sentiment "You blow me away" is from the BRAND NEW "Guy Talk" Stamp Art Set from K Andrew Designs (check it out HERE!!)...  Isn't that just SO FUN???  :)  I think these will make GREAT favors for my next Beach Party -- Let's plan one for JULY!!  ;)
We decided to test out the bubbles for some fun...  See, no BEACH in view for THAT picture -- but the cows across the road agreed that BUBBLES are FUN!!  I overheard one saying, "Hey, Mr. Farmer, we don't need a bath today, we played in bubbles!!"....  Errrr, maybe that's just something I remember The-Boy-Child telling The-Girl-Child when they were wee ones...  Bubbles + swimming always = no bath time, right???  :)
So that's it, folks...  Me and those cows are gonna have us a grand ole beach party!!  Don't you think they'll look festive with party hats and streamers???  What kinda projects would YOU make for YOUR beach party???  Create 'em up and show us what you've got by linking up over at Decorate To Celebrate! before Tuesday, June 12th at 11:59pm EST...  I can't wait to see what ya make!!  :)
P.S.  Anybody notice the seahorse sneaking in for the party???  Hee hee...  Someone get him a party hat!!  :)

Until next time,

Like the sentiment on the made over bubbles bottles. Especially like the photos of the cows & the Seahorse figure in your garden of pretty Pansies.

Absolutely adorable Amy. I love the colors and the embossing. This is far better than the "generic" bubble labels.

So cute, and so much more personal than those little tiny bubble bottles they make for parties! Thanks for sharing your great idea. Right now I am working on decorating empty baby food jars in a similar fashion, but not as fancy like.
