Pool Layout for challenge entry!

Hey everyone!!

I have a LO for you today. I am entering this into 2 challenges:
1. Lasting Memories - use their sketch and add buttons - also has a DT call
2. Paper Playtime- projects with water

I matted my pic with green and orange glitter paper (open stock from Joanns). The striped paper is from DCWV Citrus Stack. The flowers are different pieces I've put together, some I dyed myself. I used buttons in the centers. I just love the little fish bowl buttons!!! The blue swirls are beads I threaded onto wire and bent it into the shape I wanted. I glued them down with glue dots (Zots).

I hope you like it and make sure you go check these challenges out!!! Don't forget....I LOVE to read your comments!!

xoxo Charity
