 This is my latest design for The Memory Nest using the following sketch.  My happy place is the beach.  And sadly due to a knee surgery, volleyball schedule, etc, etc, a beach vacation is not in the stars this summer.  So I decided to dip into my beach archives and scrap one of my favorite pictures I took of my daughter last year at Panama City Beach, Florida.  She was being "sculpted" into a mermaid on the beach by her sister...It doesn't matter where you go along the Florida Panhandle, the water is a glorious emerald green.  While the picture may not be the clearest of my daughter, I love the different colors of water behind her. So when I saw the papers in the Kaisercraft "Coastal Escape" collection, I instantly thought of Florida and my mermaid girl.  This sketch allowed for me to use a variety of the papers in the line without taking away from the beauty of the picture which I liked.
