*Playing in Paradise #34*

It's time for another Playing in Paradise challenge over at the Scrapbookers Paradise Blog... This week was very very difficult for me... Tracy challenged us to be inspired by a book quote or the title of your favourite book.  I LOVE to read, but I don't get inspired by quotes etc.  In fact, I don't usually remember lines from books.
I was sitting at my stamp table, wondering what on earth I was going to do.... when it suddenly hit me.  Hidden in my stash was an image of little piggies in a bathtub... perfect for a book we read to our kids EVERY DAY from conception until the younger one was about 2.  This was many years ago, but I still remember that book.

We love "The Going To Bed Book" by Sandra Boynton (as well as many of her books) and it is always part of any new baby gift we give.

And to this day, I can still recite the entire book....  "The sun has set not long ago... now everybody goes below... to take a bath in one big tub... with soap all over, scrub scrub scrub....."

And thus was born my card, inspired by a book quote...

Items Used: 
*Cardstock: PTI White; Stampin' Up! Basic Black, Island Indigo
*Images:  unknown
*Embellishments:  unknown ribbon; Baby Blue, Waterfall and Frosted Lace Stickles

I invite you join us in playing this week... simply add your card to the links at the bottom of the challenge post before midnight on Thursday for your chance to win a prize from Scrapbookers Paradise as well as a chance to play along with the Design Team in a future challenge.
