Challenge #125 at Sketch n Stash - Option 'Fairy Tale'

Good morning.
Hope you had a wonderful weekend.
I had a lovely day with Lola Arizona and Ruby Mae on Saturday - did some Christmas shopping - had to refrain myself from giving them the presents I bought lol!!!
Sunday was a quiet day - John and Jack went to football in the morning and I tackled some of the dreaded ironing whilst catching up on last night's X Factor. Then a cosy night in front of the TV watching some of my most favourite programmes.

So it's the end of half-term and Jack has gone back to school and John back to work which means I will need to keep myself busy in my little crafty haven (if you ever wondered what it looked like I have added a page on the top of my blog so you can have a little nosey around).

Today we have a new fabulous sketch for you over at

Here's what I came up with:

Oooo what a gorgeous fairy, papers and extras too.

The problem is, if you gave your grandchildren their presents early, you would then have to go out and buy some more !! :-), i know it's tempting, as i have been known to do it with H !!,
