Do you Believe in Fairies??

I do, I do... WARNING...short story.... lol
When I was in 2ND grade, I discovered
the school library... I always loved to
read, one day when browsing the library
I came across this book called Thumbelina.
For two years, every week, I took that
book out of the library... I guess you can
say it was my favorite book when I was
little tyke. I was fascinated by that little
fairy who could fit in the palm of your hand.
I can't remember what the book was about,
but I will always remember the feeling I
had when I read it, over and over and over
again! LOL How I got to like scary books,
is beyond me....hahaha But anyway, where
was I going with this...hmmmmmmmmmm
Ohhh fairies, that's right. I have seen so many
fantasy layouts and I gotta say, how much I
enjoy looking at everyone layouts,
so one day I tried it myself. Here is the
layout I did for Abbie...

I plan to give this book to on her 1st birthday.
Well to make a long story short, a friend gave me
a great idea to make a kit, so that is what I have been
working on. I think it came out pretty good
and decided to share it with you all, if you want
it....that is! LOL It's a biggie, so I was trying
to figure out how to do this, I could make it
last all week and give just bits and pieces, or
just do it all in one day....Ohhh decisions, decisions....
LOL Then I thought, what I would want...
well, that is simple...all in one that's
what I am going to do... Here are the previews:

I couldn't fit everything in the previews, so there are
more embellishments and some word art.
If you want, you can just click on the first preview
and you can download the whole thing, if you prefer
smaller size downloads, I also did that, so far, I
still have room to do that on 4 shared, but when it
get closer to my capacity, I will have to start removing
stuff from the beginning, but so far everything is still
available. So here are the downloads in 4 parts:

Tell me what ya think, ok....and if you ever get around
to making something with it, I'd love to see it and show it
off here. Like this one that Marion did... she is the one who
got me thinking about this.

Isn't that cool lookin' and she actually saw that
castle in real life....and if you think the outside
is cool, you should see the inside! Utterly Amazing!
Someday I am going to have to see this in person myself!

As you may have notice, I changed my blog back
to the original, and its not because I didn't LOVE it,
cause I certainly did, but it seems to take forever
to load up, and I don't like that! I know I have a fast
computer and its slow for me, I can't image what
it is like for peeps who have an older computer...
So for now, I am back to my original, until I can
figure out how to make it not so slowwwww.

Well, I hope everyone had a good New Year's Eve.
Mine was nice and quiet, I got in my jams, had my
appetizers and fell asleep 15 minutes before midnight.
Of course I was awaken by fireworks at 12:01am...
so much for watching the ball drop again! Oh well,
maybe next year!!!

I guess it's time for me to do some grocery shoppin
and all the happy stuff I love to do on Mondays...NOT
but some one's got to do them! At least everyone is back
to where they are suppose to be, I swear if I had to spend
one more day with the hubby, I'd shoot him!!! Don't get
me wrong, I love him, but he sure can get under my skin
at times! LOL

Have a great Monday everyone and until next time,
stay safe!
Chow for Now!!!

stunning.. i adore what you have done

I just gotta tell you, I used to pretend to be a flower fairy.. that was about 8 years ago.. yeah I know I'm 48 lol! I'll never grow up.
My friends daughter when she was 11 was a great believer in fairies and I used to phone her and pretend I was the fairy from the bottom of the garden, I would speak to her in a squeaky voice and tell her what the fairies were up to and how the elves used to like to annoy the fairies!
Once I told her that the tooth fairy was going to give her £5 for her tooth that she was leaving under her pillow... needless to say her Mum Vicky, was not impressed with that one HaaHaaHaa!

I love fantasy and I do a lot of fairy tags, so thanks for this kit. Even full size, I can bash it down and use it for tagging. There's an old myth on the origins of fairies which tells how a woman had hidden some of her children from God, then spent the rest of her life looking for them in vain. They had become the hidden people, the first fairies.

This is similar to the Scandinavian tale of the Huldra, in which a mother had washed only half her children when God came to her cottage. Ashamed of the dirty ones, she hid them. God decreed that those she had hidden from him would be hidden from mankind as well, and they became the first Huldrer.

A huldra is described as a stunningly beautiful, sometimes naked woman with long hair; though from behind she is hollow like an old tree trunk, and has an animal's tail. In Norway, she has a cow's tail, and in Sweden she may have that of a cow or a fox. Further in the north of Sweden, the tail can be entirely omitted in favor of her hollow or bark-covered back.

Anyway... thanks again for kit.

Amazing job! But then I would expect NOTHING LESS!!!

Sorry I have been incommunicado - New computer, and all the fun that goes with getting everything just right, and figuring out the difference between XP and Vista - without having to read the manual. I hate manuals!!! LOL!

I know just what you mean. My hubby is retired, and NEVER EVER goes anywhere. I love him dearly, but I also crave some space now and then - no dogs... no man... just me and my tunes. And not just so I can clean house either - although I prefer he not even be in the same zip code when it is time to spring clean! I need to tear the place up and put it back and I do not need anyone in my way - plus that is when I really need to crank the tunes LOL!

Thanks for sharing - I will be back soon to snag this kit. I think there may be a couple other things I haven't downloaded. I have not been downloading much - I am trying to organize the bazillion files already on my computer. I have 600 gig plus a 350 gig external... but it does not do me any good if I can't freaking find anything.

Ciao 4 Niao!!!


(posting soon - promise!
