It's a Party Blog Hop-Joy's Life DT





Hello and welcome to Joy's Life DT May Blog Hop! If you came from Jennie then you are in the right place...if you just dropped in you might want to start back at Joy's Blog to see all the awesome projects! 


Our blog hop this month is all about parties! We are doing decorations, invitations, food & much more! When I was thinking of what to do for this hop, I couldn't think of any holidays or celebrations coming up besides the end of school! YAY!! And as much as we LOVE the end of the school year, we don't do parties for it! Next was my sons bday in June...but he will be 17 (WHAT??? Where did the time go??) and I don't think he really want invitations & party decor! :) SO I decided to do 4th of July! We sometimes do a BBQ with the family and if we do...I will have a head start on my decorations! 


Here is what I came up with....
I will start with the invitations...

I used the Popsicle image from Sweet Popsicle Puns and some paper from Hobby Lobby. I stamped the Popsicle image in Real Red (SU) then used the zig zag design over it in Pacific Point (SU). I colored the stick after with a brown marker. Used my Deckle scissors (my FAVORITE!!) to cut around the image, then sponged some ink on the edges...and of course added some Stickle dots! :) 


Next the table decorations....



 I made some rosettes out of the same Hobby Lobby paper (I just love making these!) and stamped the smaller Popsicle image for the medallion. I covered the image with Stickles for some sparkle. I used Popsicle sticks (He He!!) that I inked up for the sticks! I was hoping to find some red or blue marbles for my jar but clear will have to do for now! 


And now for the party favors...

I used a Lifesaver roll (Needs to be a rolled candy, and the candy needs to have a hole in the center...can't use Mentos, etc...) Cover the roll with Hobby Lobby paper and then pierce a hole through the top center of the roll and stick some foil garland in the hole (this pic is an example of the garland I used...I always find mine at Dollar Tree....)
Then I stamped the sentiment "Happy 4th of July!!!" from Holiday Occasions...this set is amazing!! It has SO many different holidays on it! 


SO now I have a good start to my 4th of July BBQ party!! I just love when I am ahead of the game! :)
