LMCB # 88 "A Fish Tale" (12 x 12 layout)

Happy Mother's Day!!  Whether you are a Mom, Grandmother or Mother Figure to someone special, I hope this day finds you doing at least one tiny thing for yourself and that you are shown love and appreciation!

I finally got to my Craft Desk!  So with that I am here to bring you the latest challenge 
over at Lasting Memories!  "Something smells Fishy!!"
 Whether it's a prank layout, a fishing layout, a TALL fishy tale or a true 'stinky' layout, we are excited to see what you can come up with!

Here is my creation...

And some close-ups of Journaling, funny Fishing Hat and the Fishing pole with added thread.




The quick story is... the kids and their Dad fished for a few hours with the only result being a SMALL bull head fish.  :-(  Oh well.  Better luck next time.  I added the hat to my Husband's head at the request of my son.  After I got in on there, I decided I didn't love it.  But taking it off the layout was not an option.  So there it stays.  It's funny now.  I also added brown linen thread to the fishing pole to look line fishing line.  
Sorry for the slight blur to the photos.  Late night photography!  

You also have a chance to win another giveaway this week from Kimberly! Kimberly is giving away an awesome "HOME ACCENTS" cricut cartridge!! 
You have until Saturday, May 19 at 9pm EST to link up HERE.

I am also entering this over at Artful Delight - # 20 May Sketch Challenge
The only part that I changed about this sketch is where I put my Title and Journaling.  I wanted 6 photos... so improvised that part a bit!  I have won and purchased some of Leeanne's kits.  I love them.  Go check out her stuff !!

Thanks for stopping by and I hope you enjoy your day!!

Supplies:
Cardstock:  SU Night of Navy, Certainly Celery, Little Yellow Bicycle TWIG collection
