Mermaids and Seaweed for MIM



Hello Everyone.......have woken up to a cold wet Monday morning,and that means a frizzy hair do for the day and a lot more traffic on the roads this morning dropping kids off at school, doing u-turns right in front of you, and just a plain blaa day..but the best bit of course is......it is....

                                                     MAKE IT MONDAY 

This week we are being sponsored by ....http://digimyworld.com/ 




I had a lovely play time with a digi from Digi my world called Mermaids...



There she is..made a step card so I could fit all the bits in that I needed to...



Image coloured with Faber Castell pencils, and used my new anchor  die from Marianne creatables, cut on grey card and added a chain...papers are MME 'Glittered Pack'...



Fussy cut out the seaweed and coral and used some punched black leaves from my stash..

Glitter and shells..memory box die and glass beads were added...and liquid pearls...

And then I had the decision on picking a favourite, and that is never easy when you have 309 entries and "PICK ONE".......but I did...

                                                           #30 Michele 


This is so lovely, click the link and she has so many other photos and you can see the glossy accents on it and the way it opens, really pretty Michele.

Just read my list, and it looks like we are all done..so have a great Monday and a fabulous week...will catch you all up soon..thanks for stopping by and lets get linking up to MAKE IT MONDAY 

Luv CHRISSYxx
