My swirly mermaid cuttlebug be inspired 23

The challenge over at cuttlebug is too fun this week, its to use a punch to create a unique element on your paper craft project. I had totally planned on making a cute punch art bunny or a pig from Linda Heller's stamping school www.stampingschool.com But.... at my monthly Friday night "scrappy get together" I had a dilemma, and punch art saved the day! I'm soo pleased with myself for thinking this up!!My daughter Chelsea LOVES mermaids as all girls do, but this adorable sticker had orange straw hair, see below. My little mermaid has long blond wavy hair, I really wanted to make the mermaid look more like her. I plucked the straw hair off her head and plotted to replace it with locks of saffron swirls! I ran the swirls die through my bug a few times and styled her hair with all the swishy swirly pieces LOVE IT! I'm sure Simone and Margaret a couple of paper pal gals thought I had squished my brain through the bug, when I screamed in delight ;) On our Disney cruise in 05 { best time ever!} we went swimming with the stingrays in Grand Cayman so fun, so exciting, so scary. So cant wait to go back. If you click on photo you can see a larger pic of my double page layout.
I hope you like this mermaids new DO as much as I do!
