DTC #10 Tweens N Teens Party

Good morning and Happy Wednesday, everyone! I am so excited to be a guest designer over at  Decorate to Celebrate again!  Decorate to Celebrate is a super-fun challenge blog dedicated to showing off decorations for every celebration.  This is my third guest design spot over there and I am hoping for many more to come.
The theme for today's challenge is: Tweens and Teens Party (anything having to do with a party for them).  I decided on a movie night theme.  My kids loved to entertain at my house all the time.  I always had kids over for one reason or another...I miss those days.  Austyn doesn't entertain much at home yet, but I'm hoping that will change soon.
So, to begin with you have to have an invitation right?
So I took an old cd, lots of them laying around
and adhered paper to the front of the cd.  Then 
I stamped You're invited and all the pertinent information
directly on the paper, hand wrote the exact details
and put it in a plain cd case.
Next I cut the "popcorn" boxes from an SVG file
from Scrapping Table in different colors.
 I absolutely love her All Wrapped Up file
I then downloaded a clipart of a director's clapboard
and imported into my SCAL and traced it.  I cut it
out in white and then again in black and added their
names with a white gel pen.
I also downloaded a "film reel" and did the same thing
as I did with the director's clapboard and cut it out in 
matching colors to the popcorn container as a straw marker.
Now everyone knows whose straw belongs to whom.
Now the next time you want to have a party, think of adding a theme 
to it and create your own decorations.
Thanks so much for stopping by today and thanks again Amy and Rhonda for letting me be part of your fabulous blog as a guest designer! Don't forget to make your own decorations for a Tween or Teen Party and link up at Decorate to Celebrate  I can't wait to see what you create!
