Making a splash!

Hi guys! long time no see... well I guess its only been a few weeks but in blogger time its like a decade, or is that just me? well needless to say the pesky lemons are still giving me problems but I'm happy to announce that I am trying to look over the lemons and bask in the sunshine that grows them! I hope that made sense, it made sense in my head but it got a little confused once I actually typed it ^.^ the point is, I'm back with a splash! and what perfect way to debut my return than with this Sweet November Mermaid, Hanalei! She is my very first (hopefully of many to come) Sweet November stamp and I actually won her in a blog hop along with a gob of goodies over at one of my absolute favorite blogs to stalk, A thousand sheets of paper so a special shout out goes to Ms. Amy over at A thousand sheets because if it weren't for her awesome candy, my scrapping stuff would probably still be collecting dust! I wanted to do a haul video on my win (do people do that???) but I immediately poured everything out and began working on an altered sticky note book thingy (which by the way started of scary ugly!) and OMG I loved it so much I made a gift of it to one of my good friends who has been here from me through all my lemony issues ^.^ without further ado, lets make a splash!

This was my first time trying really RED hair with copics and it turned out ADORABLE! everyone says she looks like she could be baby Ariel from Disney's The Little Mermaid. On her tail, I tried to imitate a style Amy used over at A thousand sheets of paper, hers= gorgeouseness mine= needs more work LOL!The DP(Bo Bunny Barefoot and Bliss), Prima flowers, Hanalei stamp, baker's twine, and button were all part of my blog candy win and the swirly paper is actually just a piece of plain white paper dry embossed with the Darice Scrolls embossing folder and inked with a few different cheapie ink pads from the dollar bin at my LCS to look like ocean waves. A few rhinestones, colored with my copics to match, and the word smile using The Greeting Farm's Delicate Words Die finished my altered sticky note book. I'll be entering this little lady in the following challenges:
