I wish I was a Mermaid | 4/52

If you follow me on Instagram, you already know we spend a large amount of our free time at the pool. By a lot, I mean that Zoe begs to go to the pool anytime we are not at home. She owns more swimsuits than pairs of shoes. Yes, she swims a lot.

She has perfected her mermaid dive, complete with "tail" flick. She loves how her long hair swirls around in the water. She will lay on her back and slowly swish her hair from side to side. She reminds me so much of myself as a child. I still remember pretending I was a mermaid in the pool and perfecting my mermaid dive.

Like mother, like daughter.

I loved that mermaid so much, it was the first thing I pulled out to use on the page. I fussy cut around her shape and used it to wrap around the photo. I used some enamel dots to act as bubbles, which were cut off the paper. The rest of the page came together quickly as I layered some different size cuts of papers. I added a few stickers and finished it off with some journaling.

Journaling reads,
" Zoe would live in the pool if that was an option. 
Even in the winter she is begging to be in the water. 
She mentions being a mentions being a mermaid because
 then she could live in the ocean and never have to leave."

In other news:

Have a great weekend!
