For my creation I used Little Fairy Friend and Fairy Toadstool both from Meljen. Super cute, don't you think!!!! Both images are coloured with copics. I added stickles to her wings, shoes and all the dp edges. The flowers are Wild Orchid Crafts. The beautiful brads are from Eyelet outlet and I believe the papers are K & Co. but i'm too lazy to dig them out and confirm...lol.

So now it's time for you to continue the hop by hopping on over to Minna's blog.

Eat Sleep Stamp - Sketch, Top Tip Tuesday -Spring Has Sprung, Tuesday Throwdown - Sparkle & Bling, Dream Valley Challenges - Things with wings, Crafty Pad - Spring, If the shoe fits, scrap it - Spring, Craft Us Crazy - Spring, The Rubber Cafe - Easter/Spring., Simon Says Stamp - for a child.
