Mermaid for each other - a challenge YOUrself page

It's FriYAY, y'all!

Today I'm bringing you another fun cruise layout which was inspired by this month's challenge over at Challenge YOUrself.

The challenge was to use their fun mood board to inspire your page, and as usual, use a photo that includes YOURSELF!  Here is the mood board:

I used the blue/turquoise especially, but also the allover beachy feel. Mermaids live in oceans, AIR?!

So this page was basically a happy accident. I had used some white cardstock to cut some palm leaves, and the scrap was laying there when I was deciding where to start with this page. I decided I liked the look the negatives of the diecuts left and used the scrap!

Concentrated HS shine dots are always super fun, so I picked my beachy, bright colors and went to town in a rectangle to border my photo.

I used 6x6 papers and scraps to layer a photo background, and popped some of the layers up with foam dots.

I've been dying to use a quote with mermaid in it. I created this little title on my Cricut with a free font & I love how it turned out!

I embellished with a few stickers, puffy stickers, gold foil accents, and enamel dots. I'm really turning out these cruise pages & loving it! <3 p="">
