May Project Parade ~ Day One



I don't know about you, but I can't believe it's May already!  School is coming to a close and my FAVORITE season is just about here. . .Summer!  For this month's Project Parade, the Verve Divas are going to cook up some. . . SIZZLIN' SUMMER FUN

I'm kicking it off today with an idea I had for a kid's pool party or beach bash favor!  When I was thinking about Summer and what my kids love, one of the first things that came to mind was Capri Sun.  My kids would drink Capri Sun all day everyday if I let them!  I recently got this Pucker Up template from My Time Made Easy and I thought it looked like a Capri Sun, so I thought I'd fill it with some Starburst, Kool-aid, swim googles, chapstick and even a fun, crazy straw for a party favor! 

I used the Relax and Happy Days sets from the latest release to mimic the look of a Capri Sun.  I sponged some color on the panel and then stamped the palm tree.  I added some Dew Drops for coconuts and tore some Kraft cardstock for the sand.  The sun and surf boards were stamped on pieces of scrap cardstock, cut out and attached to the favor.  I punched a hole in the top of the box to add the crazy straw. 







So, now it's your turn!!  As with all of our Project Parades, we’ve got prizes! There are two ways to win:


1. Play along with us and link up your new Sizzlin’ Summer Fun creation (posted May 17 or later) to the linky widget on TODAY'S (Day 1) parade post before midnight on June 7th. One lucky stamper will win a $30.00 gift certificate to the Verve Store. Verve Stamps are not required, but we LOVE to see ‘em!


2. For another chance to win, be sure to give the Divas a little shout-out in the comments section as we parade our Sizzlin’ Summer Fun creations. One lucky commenter during the course of the parade (May 17 ~ June 4) will win the Verve stamp set of their choosing!

We can't wait to see your Sizzlin' Summer creations!!
