Just Soaking up Rays!

Are you ready for a new challenge? The fabulous Michelle is our hostess for our challenge this week at Bitten By The Bug 2. She has challenge us to make a project with a water theme. Now how fun is that? Hubby and I aren't huge water people. In fact I don't think he has been in the water since I don't know when!! But this year I've visited my BBF and been in their pool a couple of times and one of our grands had a birthday party at the Aquatic Center and I just loved the water slides! So I decided to-hold on to your hats now-make a layout page!! Yes, you read that right. A layout page. Not a card!!! What was I thinking?! I just had to cut this lady in the inner tube from the Fun In The Sun lite cartridge and the last time I did, I made a card. So I decided on a layout this time. She is in the #15 spot on the overlay and I cut her at 5 inches. The sun is from the Just Because Cards cartridge. It can be found on page 44 and I cut it at 7.5 inches. Her bathing suit, hair ribbon and the photo mat are dp from My Mind's Eye. The journal piece is the other side from that same cardstock. I added a quadruple bow that I made from some seam binding that I dyed and crinkled. I love how full it is.
I popped up the sun on one thickness of foam tape and put my bathing beauty on an action wobble!!
The bg dp is from American Crafts. The sentiment that is on the journal piece is from the 'Fun in the Sun' stamp set from Mary-Cardz TV Stamps.
That's it for me today! Head on over to Bitten By The Bug 2 and check out the creations that my DT Sister's made for inspiration. Awesomeness for sure! And while you are there check the sidebar for the rules to our challenges. Then head to your crafty space and create a water theme project and link it by Sunday, September 1st. Looking forward to seeing what your come up with!
Hope ya'll like my layout page!! It makes me want to head to my BFF's and jump in their pool!! :)
I'm sorry, but I don't have a picture of her wobbling. Just couldn't get a good one that was in focus.
 
 Look how full that bow is.
