Summer Tumblers

I am entering this project in the Cricut Circle Blog Monthly Challenge with the theme"On The Road Again."  No long road trips for us this summer but a lot of summer activities are in store for the kids.  This summer I decided to decorate freezable tumblers I got from Walmart for my kids and my nieces and nephews (ages 3-9 years old) whom I'm driving around to their different summer activities.  I always joke to my husband that I should change the color of my minivan to bright yellow as I feel like a bus driver sometimes LOL!  Who says being a SAHM is not tough?! 

I've seen these kind of tumblers in the Cricut MBs in different versions with the use of vinyl.  I've decided to keep the slip-on tumbler jackets cuz I find the tumblers easier to hold this way, especially with little hands. 

Here are a few close-ups:
for the taekwondo kids

for the basketball player and swimmer

for the cute one (ok, that's NOT an activity, I know but this
 is for the 3 year old one) and the hula dancer

I even decorated above the tumbler jackets:

Details of the project:

* boy and girl martial arts - Car Decals
* martial arts borders - Sports Mania
* basketball - Basketball cart
* basketball border - Sports Mania
* swimmer - Sports Mania
* waves border - Life is a Beach
* girl with flower - Car Decals
* flower - Luau
* flower border - Paper Lace
* letters for the kids' names - Paper Lace & Life is a Beach

This was a fairly easy project to do once you get the coordinating vinyls.  I've almost forgotten how easy working with vinyls was!  Thanks for looking and have a wonderful Fourth of July weekend!
