Decorate to Celebrate #60 - Over the Hill Party

Happy Wednesday!! I hope you are having a great week!! It's time for a new challenge at Decorate to Celebrate. For Challenge #60, we are asking you to create any project to be used as a party decoration (or party supply) for an Over the Hill Party. Let's celebrate everything wonderful about growing older, having too many candles, finding humor in old age and more with your table decorations, party banners, pennants, yard signs, cupcakes, party favors and more :)


For my Over the Hill Party, I created tombstone gift bags. The paper is from my stash. The shape of the bag was cut with a Tim Holtz Vintage Cabinet Card die. The labels are Spellbinders Labels 9 dies. The top layer was inked with TH Walnut Distress Ink and popped up with foam tape. RIP is from My Craft Spot's Spooky Treats stamp set. It was embossed with Zing Vanilla embossing powder. Here Lies Your Youth (mean, I know!!) was stamped with a Hero Arts alphabet stamp set.


I am entering this in the following challenges:
  1. DL.Art - Thankful Thursday - September Anything Goes
  2. Sunday Funday #13 - September Linky Party
  3. Just B Creative Crazy - Just Because September 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 Over the Hill party project...I can't wait to see what you create :)

My sweetest friend, this cracks me right up! Hehe! This is without the question the most clever take on an over-the-hill project! I just love the way your mind works. :o) Equally brilliant is the fact that these are gift bags! I can just see dozens of them lined up at the grand celebration... with the birthday girl/boy staring at them all. ;) Hehe! The paper is perfect and I love how you arranged the sentiment. You are too many things, my dearest friend! :o) I hope you're having a happy night. :o)
