Mermaid dreams

Did you play with paper dolls when you were a kid? I can remember my Mum cutting them out for me.  She has always loved to cut.  I made some lovely mermaids for a more grown up version of paper dolls.





Our Creative Corner Return of the Challenge- I was inspired by the May 2014 Love those Leftovers Challenge.  All of the paper used here is all from my scrap box.  Most of the ribbon and bling were just little bits and pieces I had hanging around too.  

Look at how yummy these colors are! I think the perfect pearls I used on the tails mimic the colors and shimmer.  Plus these girls are all about the pastels.
