I'm working on the Scrapbook Challenges for 3/29/08 and need some advice.
This is the basic layout. Part of me says "Less is more" and I should leave it as is.
Another part of me says "Dress it Up" with lots of bubbles (circles, buttons, etc.).
What do you think?

I think this looks great! Great job on the challenge! I agree with Aprildawn, I think your paper choice is perfect and the top dp looks like bubbles. If you wanted to add something subtle, maybe those clear bubble stickers?

such cute pictures!
I'm generally an embellisher and would add some buttons or even some Crystal Effects in some of the circles on the pp. But you need to do what you feel is your style - that is what scrapping is all about!
How about a circle or tag with the date or quote (there are several about boys/baths that come to mind) on it or something like that if you feel it still needs something?

Hey i love your page...Sometimes I feel like my pages need a little more but I am always scared that it will "junk" them up. I have found that if you take the fresh fillers or itty bitty backgrouds and use versamark you can stamp on the blue base page. This just gives it a little more without being overdone~I have done that on a lot of my pages to give them a little more. I like this one the way it is too

I think it's precious just as it is. But if you really want to add something, there is no rush in doing that! ;)
I've added little embellishments to layouts months after the fact. Sometimes it's easier to 'see' what's missing when you look again days later!
One of my favorite things to do is drag the edges of my paper in ink! Got any white craft? You could try that with just the background piece, but of course it doesn't really NEED it.

I really like the page! You've done a great job. I must say that I agree with your thought to "dress it up" a bit with some circle accents. I think those would be cute in a couple of the corners or something like that. Thanks for sharing! Great job!
