The Blue Fairy GDT

Hello again lovely people, please don't think I've forgotten you all, we have all been working 18 hours a day and I just can't find 10 minutes to catch up with anything blogwise!

This is another scheduled post and  I'm sneaking in an extra post today
as I was asked a while ago to GD at
as I won a challenge and this time the theme is
and here is my contribution!
I totally love  this Sugar Nellie image - Pippi Longsocks - I used it a few weeks ago and couldn't resist using it again. The papers are a fabulous colour blue from Maja and I gave everything a dabbing with my white paint dabber and her wings a sprinkling of glamour dust!
A little peek inside..
The message stickers are 'Chit Chatter' from Tim Holtz and the die cuts Magnolia Doo Hickeys. I hadn't rolled any roses for ages lately but now I'm on a 'roll' again and can't stop!! I used Hi Tack glue this time to secure them and it was soooooooooooo much easier!

Head over to Scrapbook Sisters for all the relevant info about this challenge and some gorgeous inspiration from the girls.
Thank you Scrapbook Sisters for asking me to GD - I've loved it!

Once again I have to say how sorry I am for not getting around to visit you, the upside of my job is I have the whole winter off and will make it up to you all then!!

I'll be back tomorrow with my MAWTT card and my candy winner

Love 'n ' Hugs Laurie xx
