Happy Saturday everyone!! SO did any of you guys catch the PBD Ustream last night?? I hope you did! AND I hope one of you won a prize!!

I have another layout for you today! I think I'm starting to gain some ground on the scrapbooking front! We're thinking of taking a trip so I want to get as caught up as I can since I know I will take a TON of pics on a vacation!!

This was from last summer... It was actually only a week or so before Bria became a big sister! I remember this SO clearly because I was trying to keep up with her in/out and racing around the pool when I was ready to POP! LOL  

Cutest beach ball ever?? ;)

How I laid this page out was inspired by the Sketchy Thursdays Challenge this week. I also kept in mind a few other challenges when designing this: Wacky Wednesday @ More Than Favors, EAD's Color Challenge, and Challenge Me Monday at Fantabulous Cricut! Wow - that's a lot of challenges! :)

Here are some details....
  • beach ball is from Sesame Street Seasons cut @ 2", her cute little face is from the Princess set by Peachy Keen - I also tryed a StazOn ink pad for the first time and was soooo impressed!! Until now I had only used the cheapy stamp pads from WalMArt. Never again!
  • 'Splash' title is from Create A Critter, cut at 2.25". The water splashes in it were embellished with Glossy Accents
  • I used Birthday Bash for the banners, cut at 2" and hung with red twine from The Twinery
  • journalling tag is cut from Gypsy Wanderings @ 4"
  • the big blue pearls are from K&Company
  • EK Success border punch
  • ribbon from Michaels
  • doodles with white gelly roll pen
And that's all!! Hope you all have a wonderful weekend!! :)

Candace I love this layout! It's so bright and cheery! Love the banners and that face on the beach ball is adorable. Your little one is a cutie. Wish I was gaining some ground on my layouts...sigh...I'm still 2 years behind on my grandkids and the 3rd grandbaby is due in a couple of months!
