Page Maps Challenge - Toe Dipper No More

I must say, Becky Fleck of Page Maps makes really interesting sketches. I love how she simplifies pages with her sketches and yet leaves room for creativity. I'm happy that she now has a Page Maps blog and has challenges once in a while. For her most recent sketch challenge using vacation pictures, I created this layout. I turned the sketch to accommodate my picture. I think the wavy side is perfect to mimic water and so does the flourish die cut which I punched using Sizzlits. Plus, of course, Alyssa looks adorable in her baby floater. :-)

Title: Toe Dipper No More

Materials: DCWV Cardstock and Patterned Paper, SEI word patterned paper, American Crafts rub ons, 7 Gypsies Journaling Card, Prima Flowers, DCWV brads, Fruit Smoothie Alpha Sizzlits on foam, MM acrylic paint, Flourish Sizzlits on foam, Others: Circle paper clip

Journaling: April 2008 Like your sisters before you, you were officially introduced to the pool waters at 6 months when we went to Cavite for vacation. I don't think you'll settle for toe dipping again after this.
