It's a Pool Party!!

Hi there!

So glad you could stop in and visit me today!  I have my 'Anything but a Card' posting for PaperWorksCo and I decided to embrace the hot weather we've been having a put together some fun 'pool party' decor!  I've used some fun summer paper by Cosmo Cricket 'Snorkel' to make these elements with.

Firstly, I made a sweet little favour box using a tutorial here on SCS ... super easy with fantastic results.  Then I made a fun little drink umbrella using a 4" circle cut on the Cricut and some pom-pom ribbon for the trim.  A button and a pom-pom on the top and a skewer stick, finish this off.  To complete the water-themed project I made a little boat from a tutorial I found on youtube and used the same Cosmo Cricket paper to make the sail masts.  As you can see in the picture I filled the boat with chips ... isn't that the perfect way to serve up chips beside the pool!

So that's all for today folks!  I hope my fun little summer project has inspired you to create some poolside projects ... and if you don't have a pool yourself, get making anyways ... 'cos if your neighbour with a pool sees THIS creation you will get a pool invite in no time at all!!  LOL

Have a great Sunday and thanks for leaving a comment ... I really appreciate them when I know everyone is busy enjoying the beautiful sunshine and outdoors!
