Decorate to Celebrate #46 - St. Patrick's Day

Happy Wednesday!! I hope you are having a fabulous week!! We are in the midst of a winter storm, complete with snow and ice. Yuck.

It's time for a challenge at Decorate to Celebrate!! For Challenge #46, we are asking you to create any project to be used as a party decoration (or party supply) for a St. Patrick's Day party or event. Let's celebrate everything wonderful about Leprechauns, Shamrocks, Rainbows and Pots O Gold with your table decorations, party banners, pennants, yard signs, cupcakes, party favors and more :)


For my St. Patty's Day party, I created a Kissing Ball!! The paper is from DCWV. The flowers are all cut from the Tim Holtz Tattered Flowers die. They were adhered with hot glue to a Styrofoam ball that was painted black.


The 'Kiss Me I'm Irish' (I am!!) stamp is from My Creative Time's I Believe in Leprehauns stamp set.

I am entering this in the following challenges:
  1. Simon Says Stamp - Anything Goes Challenge
  2. Sunday Funday #7 - Linky Party
  3. Craft It Up & Link It Up - Linky Party
Now it's your turn!! Head on over to Decorate to Celebrate to see the amazing projects my talented design team sisters have created for today's challenge. Then link up your St. Patrick's Day project...I can't wait to see what you create :)
