The sponsor of this challenge is


This fortnight's challenge theme is to showcase a project using 
Your Favourite Fruit (you can use its colour as inspiration (& why).
You MUST explain WHY it is your favourite.

I found this very hard to choose just one fruit as I eat most fruit
so I have cheated a little as I LOVE blue as many of you know so i have chosen blueberries
as my inspiration and used tones of blue in my Mermaid



Happy Crafting hugs me xx
