The wonderful sponsor for this challenge isBugaboo Digital Stamps who is offering digital stamps to one (1) lucky winner!!!

Good Luck!!!

Now that we have the business portion of this done, let's get on with my project:

  • aqua Recollection card stock which was cut to 5.75 x 5.5 inches
  • fishie background is from my stash and chalked around the edges
  • Ava Mermaid from Bugaboo Digital Stamps was colored with Whisper Stroke Markers, Prisma Markers, Spectrum Noir Markers with gel accents
  • an additional layer of fishie paper was glued to her back along with you'll never guess what - a WOBBLE!!! She's swimming "under the sea" . . . . . now, not only will I be singing that all day but you will also
  • treasure chests were cut using Life's a Party Cricut Cartridge and are left open to store "Pirate's treasure!!!!
  • 1/8 of an inch black Darice Satin Ribbon was glued around the edges of my chest and Queen & Co Sunflower pearls for accents
  • sentiment, "Advice from a Mermaid - make a wish upon a starfish", had been a previous freebie from  Create with TLC  which has rounded corners
  • now, if you're like me and have seen Disney's The Little Mermaid, you know of all the treasures and things that she cherished - here I have a crown, comb, mirror and tea pot and all of the charms are from Miriam's Crafting Supplies (what a wonderful source!)
  • fish and coral are stickers from a package of Package Decorations which are acid free
  • sea shells are Darice Stickerz which are on either side of the sentiment
I thank you for stopping by and visiting today. Don't forget to showcase your project on Scrapbook Blessing Club to enter in the Challenge!!! It's anything goes with no size restrictions with the only restriction of that being your imagination . . . . let your imagination run wild!!!! I can't wait to see your creations! AND did I mention if you use a Box Easel Card as your creation it counts as an extra submission - WIN/Win!!!

I've made this for my adorable granddaughter, Lily. When she was little, she couldn't say "Arial" for the Little Mermaid and called her swimmy - thus here is "Swimmy" for Lily. 

. . . .and let's sing along!!!

I appreciate and love reading your comments . . is your comment the next one I read??? 

Much love, hugs, and friendship
