  4. Lovely colours Linda and my girls adore Mermaids. . . we are always thinking up really cool name combinations for them. . .the girls usually come up with names involving Shimmery Rainbow Princess... and then tack on a name like Audrey! Saw this on MIM and had to take a look. So pleased that I did. Great blog.
