Mermaid Pillow Box

Hello and how are you today?  I must admit, I've been a bit tired lately.  Taking care of kids, getting to appointments, taking care of Dad who is already in his 80's, trying to keep up with the house and yard....I feel like there is a never ending list of things that I need to accomplish.

But I'm also grateful that I have a good life.  I really do.  I know my concerns are minor compared to others and I need to appreciate all that I have been blessed with.  Sometimes we lose sight of the blessings and get lost in the whirlwind that is life.

So I'm here, taking a little break to share my latest creation:

I made this pillow box to fit a gift card for an upcoming birthday.  The image is from Under the Sea Birthday Set from Bugaboo Stamps.  So is the sentiment.
I used Mod Podge Dimensional Magic for my bubbles.  My mermaid is also popped up for fun.  So that's it from me for today.  I hope you have a great rest of the week and weekend.  Thank you for taking a peek at my latest creation.

This meets the following challenges:  Digi Choosday: Anything Goes, Everybody Art Challenge: Anything Goes, Through The Craft Room Door: Anything Goes, and Not Just Cards: Anything Goes.

Lola, this is just too cute. Love your coloring and the pillow box is perfect for a birthday treat or small gift. I agree there are just too many things to do and not enough hours, but we can only take each day as they come and make the most of them. Remember to breathe and enjoy life, dear friend. Hugs.

Give me a beachy card and I'll follow you anywhere. Both my parents are gone. I lost them much early than needed, It's wonderful knowing that you still have your dad around Be sure to get him to record his voice and tell stories that he can pass down. Love the extra sequins. I think I left all mine behind in SC....bummer I just couldn't bring it all...Lord knows I tried by looking at the closet.
