I couldn't wait to start playing with my Mermaid Tales kit ... so I didn't! Here's the first page I made using my kit supplies. The blues and aquas were a perfect fit with this photo I took at Long Beach in Tofino, BC ...
I don't have a silhouette machine (boo!) but I love the fancy die cut designs it can do. Awhile back when I was cleaning my office I came across an old Christmas card that had a white snowflake pattern over a sparkly minty green background. I saved it because I knew it would be perfect for a layout someday - and I was right!
The journaling is a quote by Anais Nin and it says - "I must be a mermaid. I have no fear of depths and a great fear of shallow living"
I hope you're having fun putting your kits together! I can't wait to see what everyone comes up with and I'm looking forward to all the inspiring posts and projects. Happy scrapping! :)
