Decorate to Celebrate #80 - Swim Party or Birthday

Happy Wednesday!! I hope you are having a wonderful week!! Pshew, it's been a busy one here...lots of blog posts :) I have another one a little later today so I hope you will stop back by. It's time for another fun challenge at Decorate to Celebrate!! The theme for this week is a Swim Party or Birthday. We want to see all of your projects celebrating swimsuits, water and summer fun or birthdays :)


For my project, I created a beach themed mini album. All of the papers are from Fancy Pants Down By The Shore paper stack. The surfboards are Spellbinders Surf's Up dies.


The awesome sentiment is from Paper Wings Productions Sea Melange stamp set.


It's actually been a while since I created this so I'm not sure I remember everything I used. The flip flops are also from Spellbinders Surf's Up die set. This Very Moment is a TH Remanent Rub. The banner was made from Spellbinders Pennant Banner dies. The scalloped circle is a My Craft Spot Tiny Doily Dies. The stamp is a My Craft Spot Stamping All Around Summer stamp set.


I have all kinds of pull-out tags for photos but I won't bombard you with tons of pictures :) The sailboat is a Marianne die.


Another My Craft Spot Tiny Doily die set was used, with another stamp from the MCS Stamping All Around Summer set.


The banners on the top are Tim Holtz Ribbon Flags dies.

I am entering this in the following challenges:

  1. DL.Art - July Linky
  2. 2 Creative Chicks - Mini Books
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 Swim Party or Birthday decorations. I can't wait to see what you create :)

I am going to have to go buy that stamp. That sentiment is from a song "Mystic" by Van Morrison, my hubby & I love that song! Rhonda had better watch out...you are going to give her a run for her place as queen of the mini album lol!

Hugs,
Chriss

Your heart must have been happy dancing the entire time you created this. I love every page... there is so much sweet summertime fun to enjoy. I tried to pick a favorite part, but it's impossible! I do super dooper love the banner and adorable sailboat. You continue to amaze me, Lisa. As silly as it sounds, I'm just so happy to be sitting here visiting you tonight! :o)
