~~~Under the Sea~~~

shysueNovember 11, 2007

My friend and I have a "Craft Day" every week. Last week we worked on this box for her young niece for Christmas. The mermaid and seahorse are from one of my graphic programs. We put a picture of her niece's face in place of the mermaid's face. The box is covered with wallpaper, various sea objects found at yard sales, shells, and colored onion bags used as fish netting. I think the little girl will like it, as she is crazy about mermaids.

Wow, Sue, that is just adorable! I'm sure your friend's niece will just love it! Did you finish it all in one day? My friend and I have a "Craft Day" every week too, but we seem to never get anything done! It usually takes two days to do our one-day projects!
