Well I had such a fun weekend . I haven't been any where in a long time and was able to go to Bear Lake, Utah. The lake has lots of sand on the lake side and you can make sand castles there. We went boating and jet skiing. The kids had a bast. Its such a family fun outing ever year. 

My card this week fits just perfectly with the mermaid team. This darling Digi came from Digi Stamp Boutique. Digi Stamp Boutique  is the sponsor from Sweet Sketch Wednesday site. It on of my most favorite Digi site. Sally always creates such cute Digis.  You will want to make sure you check out her siteBe sure to check out the sweet cards at Sweet Sketch Wednesday this week.

Don't you just love how I match my paper to the scales on the mermaid? I had so much fun making that all match. Then using the  star punch to add to my embellishments. I used my Pro Markers and Copics.

Thanks so much for dropping by and leaving me your berry sweet comments.  Hope you have a chance to splash in water some time this summer!!!
