The Mermaid and Her Treasures
Summer by the sea shore - imagine the fun a beautiful mermaid would have gathering sea shells and basking in the warm sun - so decadent, so engaging - what a treasure to remind one of fun in the summer!

My fun summer project is a shadowbox created with the following:

*Julie Nutting mermaid stamp - fussy cut and paper pieced
*Mason jars with sea shells from my stamp stash
*Stickles, pearlescents, straws, glitter pen for accents
*Paper cut and formed into a shadowbox in which to insert the mermaid and her treasures
*Buttons to decorate the four corners of the box
*Bow formed from Mama LoveBug's private reserve of LoveBug Creations Rumple Ribbon
*Mama's Mesh in the background for the texture of sand
*Optional - magnet on the back to adhere to a mirror for display

Here's the mermaid and her treasures!  Happy Summer Fun!!

Up next is Angela

Here is our complete line up in case you get lost along the way and thank you for hopping with us today:
