Anchors Aweigh Collection: Tub Time Tales Layout by Christine Meyer

Little boy scrapbooking supplies can be hard to come by so I was so excited to see this fabulous collection from Doodlebug!  My littlest guy had recently been giving me some silly faces in the bathtub so I took advantage of the water themed products to create this fun layout!

I really wanted to use the map paper from the collection but I didn't have pictures that were the right size to make it work in a traditional manner.  So Sprinkles Vellum to the rescue!  I cut out a 10 inch circle from the vellum and put that in the center of the layout.  That kept the map as a big part of the layout but allowed the eyes to still focus on the pictures.  I decided to really play up the circles and imitate bubbles - so there are circles all over the place!

The Doodlepops in this collection are seriously adorable!  Love the turtles, love the fish, you can't go wrong!

To add dimension I decided to use the Tangerine Chippers for my title and I also added some of the fun Bubble Sprinkles throughout. 

I outlines a lot of the pieces on my layout with a black pen - I wanted to make things pop a little more and that really helped. There are lots of great words and phrases to use in the stickers - some water themed and lots not.  Makes it a very versatile line that will be perfect for all your little guys!

I can't wait to play with this collection even more this summer when I have pool, beach, and lake pictures to use too!
