Time to Juggle!

I made this for a friend who's about to have a baby, she's not exactly a "new" mom, but it's been almost 6 years since her first child, so it's kind of new again! I thought it would be really cute to have the seal juggling all the the baby things from Hip Hop Accessories, isn't this what motherhood is like most days LOL!!) I stamped them in an arcing pattern, making sure to turn the second safety pin so it looks like they're flipping around, and stamped the little "whoosh" near each flipper to put all the objects in motion. The "it's a girl" greeting is from Just So Hoppy :)
I stamped them in an arcing pattern, making sure to turn the second safety pin so it looks like they're flipping around, and stamped the little "whoosh" near each flipper to put all the objects in motion. Everything is outlined with the clear glitter Spica.
This layout is the SCS Sketch challenge for the week. I took the colors from my DP(DCVW Spring stack, I thought this print was sort of cool with my theme with all those figure 8's, kind of like the juggling, ya know?) I just had to use my dotted CB folder on the white background like Bee did, and a few of Gina K's little button babies finished it off, no ribbon this time. On the inside I used the hip hop sentiments & "to the new sister, congrats!(congrats is from "Jumping for Joy")

One thing I added after I photographed this is a few little lines on either side of the rattle, to look like it was shakin'... :)
Thanks everybody who answered my poll, the zebra took 50% of the vote(but only a handful of my readers voted) Which just leads me to more questions, I'm posting a new one tonight, come back to check it out! Don't forget to enter Lee's candy, see post below!
