At first glance, you might totally dismiss this as for use on little girl's layouts only. WRONG! Back that thought train up a sec and hear me out. I am a big kid at heart. When I saw this packet, I flipped out and lost my ever loving mind. MERMAIDS! WITH RED HAIR! In this paper packet! Seriously, I shrieked like the inner 5 year old that I am had just won a squillion gummy bears. (No shame.)

The first movie I remember seeing in cinema was The Little Mermaid in 1989. I was seven and it. was. my. jam. I am an 80s-90s Disney kid and Ariel was the bomb. I liked the movie so much that I wanted to dress as her for halloween in 3rd grade. My mom made me an outfit complete with tail, fins, and seashells and I rocked it. Flash forward to October 2017. There was a Disney singalong at the movies. I hauled myself out of bed on a rainy Saturday morning for The Little Mermaid. You better believe that I quoted and sang throughout the whole thing!

When this packet arrived in our consultant previews, I lost my ever loving mind. I had the *perfect* papers to scrapbook my singalong experience! And I threw in some copies of my costume from 3rd grade. (Don't ask about the hair, bad idea at the time, hilarious now.)

For our Scrapbook Camp in January, I was in charge of creating demonstrating and teaching our campers how to make their name tags.

I came up with this design using various thin cuts, stampsets, and the make waves papers. You can take the more subtle papers and turn them into something stunning! The memories/camera stampset is from the New Consultant Kit.

I then used my tag as an embellishment on my layout after I got my camp photos developed. No point in wasting my tag!
