At the Frozen North crop a couple of weeks ago I started this LO using some of the Websters Pages Winters Fairy Tale that I got in my My Creative Scrapbook LE kit this month.

When I started out with it I didn’t have much of an idea of what I wanted to do – I just cut out the flowers, butterflies and fairies and placed them around the photography. Well, needless to say it all went a bit pear shaped!  I had originally drawn a border around the photography in pink pen which then smudged. The LO was doomed. Ordinarily I would have ‘binned it’ and started over, but all the lush elements were just too precious to throw away. So here we have it – the resurrected LO.  The framing around the photograph was placed to hide the pink pen disaster and I know its a little wonky!  It doesn’t look too bad in real life but once I photographed it it became more apparent. Oh well, after everything else that went wrong with this it just adds to ‘the story’ . . lol


The original LO was going to be on plain white cardstock but that got creased and battered in my crop bag so I cut it down to about 10 inches squared and framed it using some more of the papers from the Winters Fairy Tale range. I’ve come to realise that I really like framing my LO in this way and it may well become a habit!


I loved these little fairies that were on one of the sheets – I coloured them in with watercolours to co-ordinate with the pinks and greens of the LO and added some stickles to their wings.


Lots of lessons were learnt during the making of this LO – one of which is I seriously need to work on my sewing skills!

Thank you for taking the time to leave me a comment I do appreciate it :)
