When I saw the theme "International or Country/State", I immediately thought of Africa . . . not sure why, but I did.  And when I think of Africa, I think of elephants and giraffes . . . so I headed over to QKR Stampede to see what I could find.  I ended up finding this adorable little elephant taking a bath  and, well, letting a little "air". lol   I also found my saying at QKR Stampede.  You can find both the image and saying HERE.   Here's how it turned out:

I think he (or maybe he's a she) turned out pretty cute.  To make the "bubbles" "pop" a bit more, I used Crystal Stickles for more dimension and then I also used the Crystal Stickles to make it look like the "bubbles" were floating up off the right-hand corner (this was not part of the image).

Till the next time I'm up in the night.  Kathy
