Young Crafters Unite BLOG HOP!

Oh what a fun and incredible blog hop this is going to be!

Hopefully you have arrived at my blog from the multi-talented PAULINA; if not, be sure to start at the very beginning - Young Crafters Unite!  And you know what happens with blog hops right? Yep; leave a comment along the way for your chance to win prizes and I do mean prizes.  We have prizes from Simon Says Stamp, Paper Smooches and Lawn Fawn - yippee!!

I created one of my fave projects - an altered Jr. Legal Pad - man, I LOVE THESE THINGS!  Since we have 2 young ladies in our household; I love creating things for young girls - it's what keeps me young!  :D

Inside of notebook; mini mermaid  :D
This one is for a young lady who has a birthday in July - just 2 days after mine!  She loves mermaids and notebooks so I "think" she might like this.  I've made many varieties of these notebooks which you can see HERE, HERE, HERE and HERE!  I have lots of 3D items on my blog...in reviewing that category I found A LOT of altered notebooks.  tee hee

OK, on to today's creation:

Cute little mermaid sitting on some mussel shells; her tail is 2 shades of blue and 1 green, I LOVE it IRL and her hair is covered in sparkles although very difficult to see in the pictures!

This is a digital mermaid so I made a smaller version for the inside of the notebook; and on the left inside, there is a little pocket which you can store things - comes in so handy!

Pocket on the inside left
OK, next up is the uber-talented KATHY!  Enjoy the journey and thanks for hopping by!

...mermaids and sea shells...

Hugs, ~M.
