Thank You Becky Fleck

I struggled with this layout for weeks before Becky's August sketch was posted. Pushing paper around, lots of sighing, cutting, disposing and nearly very nearly giving up. As soon as I saw the sketch it was like a lightbulb moment, a big 'this is it'. This is what I need to do. I sat down and ignored my family for the day and finished it off. So Ms Becky Fleck, thankyou!!

On another note- I completed this one weeks ago but have only just got around to uploading. Baby Trent's room has got Pooh's First Aquarium bedding, so I've continued the theme with fishy night light and mobile, and now his very own wall plaque. I'm really happy with it. The white bubbles are painted with clear glitter and are actually Buzz n Bloom Head Start Bubbles minis. Just cut them up into wonky strips. I paper pieced the fishies - there's spose to be 3 but I got sick of doing them - *shrug*.

I'm actually not feeling too good today, so I might leave it there and go back to sleeping. Mmmm, sounds good!! LOL.
