Water bottles and tumblers galore!!!

This has been a super busy and crazy week and it's only Wednesday.
On Friday my oldest son came down with a nasty cold and strep throat, then to top it off I started feeling sick on Sunday night...
Uggh, what awful timing... I had orders that HAD to be completed, basketball mom duties to fulfill and my regular job to deal with ( did I mention, I hate being sick).
Anywho, on to the important stuff:-)...
I was asked to decorate 14  aluminum water bottles  for my  8 year old cousin's birthday party.  The birthday girl requested each guests name with butterflies on one side of the bottle (easy enough)! I wanted to do something special on the Bday girls water bottle so I found an awesome Justin Bieber svg file on the SCAL forum ( thanks Sweetness4713 for sharing your cool file) and I added this to the opposite side. The name font is Storybook created using MTC and the butterflies are a random clip art image that I traced in MTC.

All the other water bottles look similar to the ones shown
My name is Nubian and I'm an addict... YES, I have admitted that I have an addiction. I can't stop altering these double walled acrylic tumblers. I'll be cruising the net, see an image and the next thing you know I'm decorating a tumbler!!!
Whew, what a relief :-)
A co-worker requested these two tumblers for her 13 and 16 y/o nieces. The only information that she provided to me was their names and ages.
My goodness, I haven't been 16 in years and have NO idea what teenagers today really like- so hopefully I hit the mark. The images were found in google and I traced them in MTC. I used the Hot Fudge font on Brianna and the Princess font on Brittini.

Tooprecious, thanks for the compliment. SCAL is a program that allows you to cut images other then whats on your carts. I actually used MTC which is a similar program on this project... JMI but I like MTC better, check out the site and get a feel for it. Send me your email addy so we can chat. Thx
