Layout for a Challenge

Here is a layout I have been wanting to do for a while. These are pictures I took of Elan last summer at the pool. He didn't care much for swimming, but he loved to pace around the pool in "gobbles" play with his pool toys and pick up badgee (garbage) and throw it away. He was content, and that's all that really mattered!

I am submitting this layout to a couple of challenge sites today:

CCEE Stampers: Summer Theme
Pile It On: The Color Orange
I made my own chipboard accent with a label and some ribbon and brads. I sanded the edges of the chipboard after I covered it in orange for a finished, smooth look. The trim came from my stash and the polka dot paper is Making Memories Giggle Kids line. Flowers are Prima and chipboard letters are American Traditional.
Have a fun day today! It's raining and thundering here, so, a great day for crafts!
