mermaid for a day - challenge YOUself sketch

Hi everyone!

I here once again to share to you a layout I made based on the July Challenge at Challenge YOUself.  As a little girl, I was big fan of disney movies (actually, I still AM!).  I have secretly wished to become a princess like Snow White or a mermaid like Ariel.  Well last year, I had the chance to become a mermaid, even just for a few hours.  We went to Plantation Bay Resort and Spa in Lapu-lapu City Cebu for our company last year and part of the activities offered there is the Mermaid Lessons and Pictorial.  So  me and my two officemates decided to try this and it was worth the price.  We weren't able to avail their lessons since the instructor was not around.  But the pictorial was fun.  We were able to use their mermaid costumes and posed around the pool.  It was an unforgettable experience for me and that's why I chose this photo as the subject of my layout.  I want to preserve this memory and remember that I experienced what it was like to be a little mermaid.  So enough of my ramblings, here is my take on their sketch.


My layout!


Thanks for viewing!
