Bath Time

I just completed another layout for a challenge at Let's Scrap. Here are the rules for this challenge
1. Use a Let's Scrap sketch
2. NO PATTERNED PAPER may be used
3. Use at least one quote with author's name
4. Use a die cut of some kind
5. You must include at least one homemade embellishment

At first I was stumped because I always use patterned paper and the thought of just using card stock had me rather worried but I finally got an idea. I decided to use pictures taken a few months ago of my Grandson Jacob having his bath . Here is the layout.

Here is a close up of the left side

and the right side

I was going to leave the white background alone but just had to put something on it so I used a round sponge and using blue ink sponged circles allover it. I also had a couple of packages of cute blue and green see through blubbles so added them everywhere. The swirl at the bottom was cut with my cricut using SCAL but I'm not sure where I got the file so that I can thank the person who designed it. I really liked the premade title because it has terry cloth on it.

I was to put a quote with the author on it but had a really hard time finding a quote that suited a baby having a bath. If I was normally going to write something it would have been Rub-a-dub-dub cute little guy in the tub or Rubber Ducky but didn't think that they would work for a quote. So I ask the great people in my yahoo groups to see if anyone had any idea's and of course they did. Several people sent me really cute quotes and poems and I finally decided to go with a poem and hope that it would be ok for the challenge. Thanks Mandi for the poem it suits the layout perfectly and thank you everyone else for your help also.

I have some new cards I made and another layout but I think that I will save them for another day. Take care all.
