"Make-It Monday" Magical Mermaid

Good morning friends.  How was your weekend?  Did you find any time to create?  Well...I made ONE card!  I had good intentions, but my son and his girlfriend came up to pick up his dog, Ella.  We've been taking care of her for a couple weeks.  Our Millie is gonna miss her...but now she can have her ball all to herself!  

Well...it's definitely a Monday morning....and boy am I frustrated.  Being a mom is such a hard job and sometimes I'd just like to not have to ADULT...if you know what I mean!  I can't wait to get out to my workshop...CREATING calms my spirit and helps me relax!  I'm blessed to have this outlet!

Before I get out there, I have a "Make-It Monday to share with you!  ENJOY!
