Ever since he was young, A has loved to play in the water and in the dirt.  I love these pictures of him sitting at the kitchen sink with the water running over his hands.  You can tell he's just so pleased with himself.

I started this layout over a year ago, when we were still in Jamaica.  I wanted to play with paint a bit so I tried making bubble-looking circles using a lid dipped in paint and "stamping" it on to the background paper.  When I looked back on the page, I just didn't like it.  At all.  So, I did what a rarely do and I pulled it apart.  Actually, I kept the three vertical photos and changed the rest.  I decided to mist the background instead to give a bit of a "spray" feel.  I cut circles out of the water paper and then mounted them on green circles to do a bit of a border along the main photo.

I punched the water paper with my circle punch to replicate bubbles and then I filled in a few holes with a sparkly sticker.

I have white foam Thickers so I decided to paint them with some sparkly blue paint.  It took three coats of paint but I finally got the look I was wanting.

I LOVE the way you filled the punched holes with the sparkle! Brilliant! And those thickers are a perfect color match.
