The Never Ending Layout!

I love seeing the double page layouts at ST!!  Another reason I loved this sketch, was because of all of the portrait photo spaces.  I had these great photos of my oldest daughter, blowing bubbles one afternoon in our backyard.  I've been working on the lo over the past 2 1/2 days.  Normally, I like to finish a lo in one session...about an hour and a half.  One of my new favorite ways to add dimension to my lo's is by gluing my pp to the thin cardboard pieces that come in page protector packages.  I used this method on the half circles for my banner and sun and I think it makes such a big difference.  I also used some Smooch Spritz and masking to add the appearance of bubbles.  There were some casualties during the "spritzing"...such as my fingers, the concrete, my clothes, the door, and probably a few bugs here and there!  So here it is, in all of it's glory...finally finished!!
