My Sweet Boys

This is one of my daughter Robin's favorite photos of her husband and son. It was taken last August and I am finally getting around to scrappin' it for her!  
Authentique Papers has their August sketch challenge up, I only own one item by Authentique and that is a 6x6 pack of papers from the "Delightful" line so I am going to enter this contest a few times to see if I can win some more of their product!

I used white paint dabbed through punchenella to create bubbles on the background paper. This helped blend the papers together a little so it isn't quite so noticeable that I had to piece together four 6x6 pieces of paper for my base!

Here is a close-up of the "bubbles". One of the papers in the collection has a little orange design on a light blue background - it looks like little goldfish to me so I put it behind clear epoxy bubbles - cute!
(now that I look at them enlarged in this picture I see that they are flower buds! 
Oh well, vertically they're flower buds and horizontally they're goldfish!)
Supply list: Paper: Authentique “Delightful”, “boys” and “{“ Crate Paper, “my sweet” American Crafts, Font: DC Kristy Journal, Ink: Ranger Distress, Paint: Basics white, Journal spot Fancy Pants, Epoxy bubbles unknown, Heart punch: Martha Stewart, Corner Rounder: WRMK

Thanks for looking! I appreciate your comments!
