*baby frame*

The other day I was rummaging around in my old craft closet and ran across this frame. I bought it ages ago and almost forgot I had it. Well, one of my girlfriends just had a baby boy, and I thought it would be fun to make her a name frame for the baby's room.

I used mostly A Muse stamps (with the exception of the submarine, balloons, and moon and stars) and even managed to sneak in a couple cute little critters from the new "Spring It On" release. See turtle walking through the seaweed?... and snail contentedly perched on the letter s? Sneaky, aren't I? I spelled out Reise using the fabulous ginormous polka dot monograms, created a little tag to attach to the frame using the "oh baby!" sentiment, added a funky border of seaweed across the bottom, and watercolored a few other A Muse critters... all to create a boyishly fun underwater scene.
