Grandma... there's something in the water!!! SOUS Die Cut Challenge ~ CHOSEN AS A WINNER OVER AT GO FISH CHALLENGE!!



Hi everyone!!  I hope you are all well today...  And since it's Friday we have another fun die cut challenge for you over at Stuck On U Sketches!!  Today's challenge is from Co-Leader Nanne and she's kinda made it easy for you by giving you a theme to work with for this challenge.....

and that theme is......

 Rrrrrrr ye "SEA" worthy?

anything to do with the sea ( for example: fish, seaweed, treasure, boats, etc.. etc.. etc..) 


I told you it was easy.... :o)

So for my layout I decided to go way back in my archived photos and picked a couple of cute photos of Granddaughter Savannah taken back on July 8, 2008...  At that age she didn't want her swimming water dirty in any way...  no dirt, leaves, sticks, pebbles or anything else in her wadding pool.  It's pretty safe to say that a little dirt must have gotten in it and she was pretty upset!!    The expression on her face is priceless... 

Here are a few close ups....    


TOP LEFT...
Here you can see Washi Tape, Doily sponged with Stampin' Up More Mustard Ink, Ribbon from The Paper Studio, and a Tag from Pink Paislee - Indigo Blue...
(The red around Savannah's mouth is from eating strawberries... when she was little she used to break out right after eating them...  I'm so glad she doesn't break out any more.... she loves strawberries!)



TOP RIGHT...
Washi Tape, Paper Flower from The Paper Studio~Spare Parts, Post Card from House Across The Bay,  Trim from stash under the flower..



BOTTOM 1/3RD

Here are my die cuts.....
School of Fish ~ Cricut -- Life is a Beach
Light Green Plants ~ Cricut -- Kate's ABCs
Dark Plants ~ Cricut -- Animal Kingdom
Sea Horses ~ Cricut -- Paper Doll Dress Up

Added some black pearls for the eyes of the fish and used a black pen to mark the eyes on the sea horses..

The Paper I used on this layout is...
Stampin' Up More Mustard Cardstock
Stampin' Up Basic Black Cardstock
Basic Grey Serenade Collection
All die cuts are cut from scraps..
