Enchanting Mermaid Mask

Today I am bringing an enchanting mermaid masquerade mask.  I planned to give this to my little niece but it turned out so well I had to keep it for myself.  I prefer to hold a mask and not wear one but this project could just as easily be done on a standard mask with an elastic strap.  I used one small real seashell while the rest of them are buttons or plastic charms. Check out the full tutorial HERE.

"Hello Summer" Layout

Masculine layouts can be tricky to embellish but Dew Drops offer the perfect solution. As the Dew Drops are transparent, they will appear as different colors depending on the color of the background to which they are adhered.  Let's dive into scrapbooking a fun little boy's layout and stamp some colorful seashells. Follow me over to the The Robin's Nest blog HERE for a complete tutorial.
