I Dream of Mermaids

4 of them
4 little mermaids all in the pool
All enjoying the water
Well almost all enjoying the water
Lucy went better tonight, at swimming, but was still a little unsure about it all
Hopefully next week there WILL be 4 little mermaids in the pool and lovin’ it :)
Lucy also wanted to scrap today
She nagged me yesterday too
So today I gave in ;)
She choose this photo and made this page
I just did the stitching and helped with the spelling ;)


Oh and the other news is she had a nap for me today!!
That hardly ever happens
But she has a cold and with swimming tonight I knew it was needed
While she slept I started on this page :)


So what can I tell you about this page??
I used the Baker’s Dozen kit from Studio Calico 
I used some scraps too
Here you can see the cut-off-throw-away strip from the My Minds Eye paper
I used the promo card for the Anthology line from Studio Calico
Oh and the gorgeous doily stamp that came with the kit


I used some of the new buttons (chipboard and altered) that I received from Such Sweet Tierney


They are just gorgeous and I am having fun playing with them


Oh and the journaling
Must tell you about the journaling
I thought I would be clever, ha!
I used some Washi paper tape
I put it on some scrap paper and fed it into the typewriter
The typewriter went on it like a knife to butter, perfect
Then came the clever part, ha again!
I thought I would peel the tape off so I could just use that on the page, and you’d be able to see through it
But where the typewriter had letters like o or a or p, where there was a centre, it decided to rip
But I used it anyway
You can see some of the print from the pattern paper between some of the missing letters
But I think I like the raw, rustic look lol


So that was our day :)
Today in the mail I found the new QTea kit
I had a flick through, YUMMMMMM
But can’t play with it till Thursday
Tomorrow Lucy and I are hanging out with some friends, yay :)

Pin It Now!
