The Red-Haired Mermaid

I've never gotten it...
But my husband has explained to me the allure of red-haired women many times.
I just don't get it.

Maybe that's because I grew up thinking men wanted silky black haired women...
My mom always said "Eat more seaweed so your hair will be black to attract the men"
I ate lots of seaweed. Lots and lots. 
Heck, we have a huge pack of seaweed that my mom just gave me last time we went to visit her.
So red-haired, really???
Hah, blame my culture.

But being the nice wife that I am,
I gave my husband a red-haired woman.
The only red-haired woman he's going to get...
Well, if he wants to stay married to this silky black-haired girl...


This layout was my attempt to layer more.. yeah... I'm not convinced I layered more but I tried...
What can I say, I'm clean and simple. 

When I showed my husband the layout, he only had one comment.
A very guy comment.
My husband commented that his little red-haired girl wasn't wearing a top!
I argued that Cosmo is a nice family company but then I took a closer look...
I think I have to agree.

But I'll leave it up to you, dear reader, to make your own conclusion.
But only in this house can we argue for 30 minutes about a piece of chipboard.
Feel free to click on the closeup for a closer view of the topless red-haired woman.


Thanks for stopping by! Have a great day!

You crack me up, I just love a good chuckle when I read your blog posts! Men are hard to figure sometime, but then so are we, haha. Your layout is too cute! I love it!

LOL, that is a guy comment!
I'm thinking he's right, but atleast the rest is covered. I'm sure it's the last thing a little one would pick up on. Great attempt at layering, keep up the awesome work!

I love it!!!! I think your page is great, you did awesome with the layering. And that is hilarous what your hubbie's first reaction was!!! LOL!

Cute layout and I think you layered very well. The gemstones also add texture and dimension.

Funny comment by your dh, though she's a modest little girl mermaid...

Bombshell Stamps has a modest older mermaid who is also topless.

LOL...that's pretty much Bri for you, I suppose! :) Doesn't cartoon-like and artistic liberties count? sighs...

Such a cute layout. I really like the story about your dh and the mermaid. Men. My daughter is a red head (see her there--> ) and she hates it. She gets so much attention because of it and she is super shy. She wants to color it. Maybe I should have her eat more seaweed. lol!
