Underwater Scene, Syrena, and Happy Birthday to my baby girl!

I hope everyone had a wonderful Thanksgiving yesterday.  I know I did!  I missed my girls but got to spend the day with my Mom, sister and nephews and their families.  I simply adore being around them and know how very blessed I am.  Today is not only Fabulous Freebie Friday over at the Sassy Studio Designs Paper Craft Planet Group, but it's my baby girl, Nichole's birthday!  Happy Birthday, honey!  

When Nichole was little, she fell in love with The Little Mermaid.  Ariel was and is still her favorite princess.  When I was asked to create an underwater scene for this Friday's Freebie, I knew exactly what I wanted to do, especially when I saw that it fell on Nichole's birthday!  This one's for you honey!

I love this underwater scene and think you can use it for so many things!  I added Syrena from Sassy Studio Designs  and colored her like I could see my Nichole as a mermaid.  I colored everything with colored pencils and added some Stickles to the starfish and sand dollars.  I added some Glossy Accents to the bubbles and then sprayed Goosebumps on the background scene and Syrena.  Then I attached her with some pop ups and added some gems from my stash.  The flowers are from Recollections and the branches are from my Martha Stewart punch.  I ran the border through my cuttlebug Devine Swirls folder and sanded it with a nail file.

Isn't she just gorgeous?  I love Lindsay's designs!

Here's a view of one side.

Here's the other side.

I added a few gems on the inside. Make sure to head over to the group to pick up this gorgeous scene and to leave my Fabette sisters some love.  Remember this freebie will only be available for 24 hours.  Don't miss it!
