Jody I am trying to find a children's picture book that would have been published prior to 1995, it's a book all of my siblings remember but cannot place.

A girl finds the crumpled deflated moon in her garden and must get it back in the sky. In the end she ends up blowing bubbles and one replaces the moon.

I believe this is a picture book because I have a pretty vivid memory of the pictures.

Mai | 1253 comments I found one that might fit your description; it was published in 1993.
Moonfall by Susan Whitcher
It's mentioned in this article:

The book is full of wonder and fun. Sylvie, a young girl, happens to be looking out the window one night when she notices the crescent moon is dangerously low in the sky. In fact, it seems to be caught in the branches of a neighbor's lilac bush.
[...]
For 15 nights, there is no moon. Finally, Sylvie's neighbor finds some crumpled-up trash underneath the lilac. It looks like a curved, narrow strip of white aluminum siding, with jagged edges. Sylvie takes it home to scrub and polish it, but a horrible thing happens. The moon melts into the soapy water of the washtub.
The happy ending, however, will delight anyone who loves to blow bubbles.
