Fairytale notes....

Morning Peeps!!

How are you all today? I am fabulous!! Romfl!!! Scott did some puppy playing with the furball princess and small prince this morning so I could get a little making time in!!

I have been rushed off my feet entertaining and snuggling my little furball Poppy because she is just so delicious I can’t resist but I was majorly missing crafty time too so needed a little balance this morning!! He he he!!

And anyways Krista drew this gorgeous fairytale girly and I could not resist printing her out straight away and doing some colouring. She is a freebie until Wednesday when Krista will be popping her in the Saturated Canary store and I just adore her.

I printed 4 out and used the same little pile o pens to colour them all in. I love doing this occasionally because it challenges me a bit to use the same colours differently on a project and I love seeing how different they all turn out. I had fun playing with those gorgeous tassels on her top/ skirt colouring them in differently to get a different take on them. 
little pile o pens.....

I chose to use my mono one for this mornings crafty playtime and alter a little notebook.

The notebooks were 4 for £1 from the range a few months ago and they have just kinda sat on my shelf waiting for a bit of love (… that a small fib…they have been sat on my craft desk but its such a mess I didn’t find them until yesterday when I was having a small need a little space to craft tidy up…….:)

Anywho's, I cut her with a deckled edge nestie and then backed her onto some black card, then a bit of super yummy Salt And Pepper Funky Hand download paper later she was a gorgeous altered notebook!!

I also used Die-namics Mini Royal Roses and my Lord Tim Chip Block die, a Cheery Lynn exotic butterfly and a really good spray of crafters companion glitter spray. I love this stuff, she looks so sparkly and magical.Here's a more sparkly piccy....

 The black lace down the edge was a total bargain too, Scott bought me it from Boyes last monday, it was in the bargain basket and cost just 40p for a huge bundle.

Well, that's me for today!! Little Mo has a swimming lesson this morning and Poppy has some serious menacing to do.......he he he he!!! gotta love a puppy!!!

Have an awesome sunday everyone, thank you for popping in on me!
