Mermaid Banner

I admit I'm horrible blogger.  I apologize for not updating my blog for many, many, many months.  Unfortunately the first thing to go to the wayside when life reared it's challenging head was my blog.  I  had to take wee little break earlier this year while my dad was dealing with a serious illness.  Thankfully the Doctors finally figured out what was ailing him (after two hospitalizations) and he is doing much better now.  So thank you for sticking around and finally a new project to share with you.  I created this fun Mermaid Banner for Alpha Stamps using the new fabulous Die-cut Chipboard Scallop Shell, Sand Castle, and Mermaid Tail.

 To create the background for the mermaid tail and sand castle I ripped some of the Fresh Mini Paper Set into strips and sewed them together using a zigzag stitch setting.  This is the first time I've ever used a sewing machine and it was easier than I thought it would be, of course mom helped a lot! 
I have to admit my favorite part of the entire project was the little garden I created using  Colorful Flower Sequins and the Seashell Sequin Mix.
