PDE Ch# 12 Photo Inspiration

Pause Dream Enjoy Ch#12 Photo Inspiration

I love this cute mermaid! I actually got her last year planning for this challenge theme. However, when I went to find her again in the Silhouette store, I see her in my purchase history, but the page where you can buy her is gone. I am only guessing that maybe the artist no longer has designs in the Silhouette online store. So I went in search for her. Found it! Link is below.

For this cut file, I did a little tweaking. 
The black cuts were so small, and I'm not a fan of small cuts. 
To remedy that, I copy and pasted the skin tone cut.
Moved the eyes and mouth cuts on top of one of those.
Highlight the skin tone cut along with the mouth and eye cuts 
and clicked, "make compound path."
Cut out one skin cut solid (like the file brought it in) with black cardstock.
And I cut out the skin tone with the eye and mouth cuts in a skin tone cardstock,
then layered them on top of each other. Sounds like a lot, but to me, that was easier than cutting out and dealing with small black cuts.
