UNDER THE SEA WITH SYREN...
Good morning everyone.
It is Friday and I am so happy that it is. I know this was a short week, but sometimes that almost makes the week drag. lol.... Nah, just kidding it was a good week. I am just looking forward to have some more family time.
When I got off work yesterday it was already over 92 degrees outside. The M&Ms and I were going to hit the pool when Jerry informed me that I needed to give it about 10 more minutes as we were suppose to get hit with 30 mile an hour winds. :O( Don't you just hate a know it all? I honestly think the man should have been a weather man as he is never wrong. Those winds were blowing and around here in the Desert that means lots of dirt in the air. No way to enjoy a swim. Oh well, hopefully tomorrow.
However with some non swimming time I was able to actually start my little project and make a great dinner for us all. As you all know I love, love CC Syren from the Greeting Farm. I would have to say that she is my all time favorite. I wanted to use the wooden plack that I had sprayed with my Moon Shadow -Bluebeard blue violet from Lindy's Stamp Gang. So I stamped out Syren and blow her up to 4x6. I had a confetti mix pack from Crafters Square so I decided to see about making her tail look like it actually had scales. (Mind you I will never use confetti or glitter again. I have it everywhere. lol...) I then cut up a crocheted doilie that I had purchased from our Dollar Tree and added some little seashells along with some burlap that I sprayed to make it look like part of a coral reef. I don't have a hot glue gun so I used some of my Glossy Accents along with some of the awesome red tape that I had purchased from Jodi to put everything together. Mind you I am a Card Maker/Scrapbooker, so this is all new to me. :O) I am pretty happy with how she came out though. I hope you like her as well. Have a super weekend everyone and I will talk at you later.
Hugs, Lisa G
