Oh spring - I think you are trying desperately to break through Old Man Winter's clutches. Today was beautiful in Illinois. It was in the mid sixties.....the smell of fresh grass in the air along with outdoor grills being dusted off and set to work. I sure hope the snow forecast for this weekend is a silly joke the weatherman is playing! I never realized how much the weather affects my mood! As long as we have sun for spring break - I will be happy.
Here is this week's layout. It was so fun to make! I also got to use my new sewing machine - which I LOVE!! I don't know if it is possible to be in love with a piece of machinery....but I can't keep my hands off of it! I didn't realize how cruddy "over loved" my other sewing machine was until I opened this baby! Look ma no hands - I don't even have to use a foot pedal! I really wanted to break out my pinks and light greens and thought a Fairy Garden would make the perfect opportunity to open my shabby chic closet! I really think the vintage book papers blend perfectly here. The cute pink haired fairy was so fun to make....notice her little pearl earrings :o)
This listing is on Ebay here with MANY more pictures if you are interested. Also, if you have an Ebay account, I would really appreciate it if you put it in your watch to help get my work noticed!
Thanks for stopping by!

So I just finished this cute little diaper bag album for a good friend of mine. She has a new great niece coming into the world next month - hooray! It was somewhat of a challenge, though, since I couldn't use the color pink! I decided to go with purples, oranges, and blues. I was afraid by not using the traditional "pink" color that it would lose it's girly feel - but I think it looks pretty cute and girly in the end! I hope she likes it too!
I have two new layouts in the works - by that I mean in my head lol! One is another book themed layout - going down the Peter Rabbit route. I'll give you a hint - the main character in the story's name is Max. Any guesses?! Then I plan on doing another dragon layout - but this time it will be pink or purple....and maybe even have a fairy or two.
Thanks for looking!
