Life's A Beach ... And I Must Be A Mermaid!

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! :)


  1. That card was a great save - absolutely perfect on this page, and the layered seascape border at the bottom is charming! Love the stamped anchor, seashell border paper, & a perfect quote :~)

  2. Beautiful, love that diecut background :)

  3. Lovely layout as usual! I would love to have a die cutting machine too, but your money saving option is awesome! I hope I get some fancy die cut Christmas cards this year! lol!

  4. Love the quote on this page...perfect for the layout!

  5. nice photo angle, lovely texture on your page
