Last Mojo Monday with a Gorjuss Mermaid

Good afternoon, I hope you have had a good Father's Day.  I have been organizing and cleaning today.  I have all my design team projects caught up so I thought I would take the day to get some things in order.  I recently had some lights to go out and purchased some new ones.  So I was under the table crawling around moving stuff to tuck all the wires away.  I am really happy with them.  They are the Ottlite LED clone clip lamp.  I got them for $20 at Tuesday Morning, about $5 cheaper than the 50% off I saw at either Joann's or Michael's this past week.  I have another score from this weekend, I will tell you about soon.

So I made this sweet thing a few days ago with several challenges in mind but foremost the final Mojo Monday sketch challenge.

It is a bittersweet farewell to be joining in the final Mojo Monday sketch challenge and #500 at that! what a way to leave blogland.  One of the first sketch blogs I followed, they will be missed.  Here's there sketch:

I don't do much coloring but I participate in a secret sister swap and my sister this round sent me this precious stamp.  I just had to use it.  I colored her a while ago and just decided she would go great as the center piece to this sketch.  I inked the background with a few distress inks to mimic the ocean and beach.  I love the snippet of Quick Quotes Adventure Awaits paper I found for the die cut, it kind of looks like kelp.
