Catch of the Day for The Digi Bells

I absolutely love me some mermaids and I think this baby doll is one of the cutest things I've ever seen!  I was watching an older movie and it showed some children's toys and they had the yellow and orange plastic shopping cart and it reminded me of my girls when they were little.  They would shop all over the house with that thing!  When I saw Catch of the Day, that cart brought back such fun and heart warming memories to me.  She's a cutie pie that's available at Elisabeth Bell's Digital Collection.  I knew that movie was telling me it was time to color this cutie pie up.

My little mermaid is colored with copics and is covered with Stickles and Diamond Glaze.  The baker's twine is a gorgeous new color, Caribbean, from The Twinery.  I absolutely love their products.  Such gorgeous colors!  The papers are from an older BasicGrey pack and has some of my favorite colors in it!  The flowers are handmade and the branches are from a Martha Stewart punches.  The doily is from Wilton and the ribbon, buttons, and pearls are from my stash.  The layout is from A Die For A Sketch

I really love how her headband came out!

A couple of glimpses of the inside.

Isn't she just so much fun?

Here's a view of the inside.  Can you see why I love this paper so much fun?

Welcome to the "Lace &/or Ribbon" Challenge Susan... I like the "wet" look you achieved with the Diamond Glaze and Stickles. I really like the layers, the lace ribbon and the twine in the button - nice touch!
Good luck - and watch for the Craft Your Passion challenge again next Monday!
