Hello! Hope all is well with you. I have had a very odd week. My son moved out again and it's peaceful with him and his sister not fighting. This is something that I will have to get use to and probably love when I do. This was his first Birthday not living at home. He turned 24 yesterday. Didn't even see him. It was weird when my first son wasn't home for his first birthday.

This week's sponsor is Angie's Digital Stamps. Her store has cute images and also sentiments that you can choose. She was so kind that she let me use her stamp "Whale" that worked great for this challenge. I have been wanting to use a picture of my grandson's wrinkled hand after he went swimming with me and my husband. The name of the card is "Having A Whale Of A Time" which is a sentiment that I used on my layout shown here:

So, I would like to explain to you what I did to this Scrapbook Layout with my image of the "Whale." My Grandson (Hayden that was 9 months at the time) went to the pool for the first time with us. I took a picture with his wrinkled hand and wanted to use it for a layout one day. So I made around 20 copies of his hand. I cut them all out and made this cute circle with all of them. I knew there would be a hole in the middle and knew where to put my image of the Whale. The whale is so much brighter if you seen it in person. I had many pictures with Hayden in the water that made picking the right pictures hard. I made the pictures in circles to kind of look like bubbles. The background paper of water made the finishing touch. I have to say if you never made something like this, it takes a lot of time. Here is my ingredients.

Cardstock --  Close To My Heart & The Paper Studio
Paper --  The Paper Studio
Font Of Sentiment  --  PW Cartoon Maker
Glitter On Whale  --  Ranger (Crystal)
Colored Markers
Colored Pencils

Since it's Summer, I bet that there are a lot of photos laying around just to make a great card with. You may have water in the back ground or you have a cute image you have been wanting to use. When your project is finished just add them to the challenge at Robyn's Fetish Challenge Blog. I love looking at what other creative people make. I'm at the end so have an awesome week and I will see you next Sunday.
