International Fairy Day Blog Hop!

Happy International Fairy Day Everyone! Welcome to my annual Blog Hop celebrating this fantastic occasion! This blog hop is dedicated to all things Fairy! I am often asked where did International Fairy Day began? This quote from FaeNation sums it up: 
"The most important day in the calendar, June 24th – this day is the second ever International Fairy Day. Founded by artist Jessica Galbreth, Fairy Day is a holiday for believers, collectors and the young at heart to celebrate all that is Fae and reconnect with their imagination and child-like wonder. It is the perfect day to glamour bomb, make a fairy altar, take a walk in unspoilt countryside or even just reread your favourite fairy books. See the Fairy Day website for more ideas."
I have collected some of my favorite bloggers and crafters to join me in this fun celebration! I hope you enjoy the projects we've done. Below you will find a list of sure to hop from project to project--keep my screen open as there may be one or two without the list on their blog. 

Today I'm creating with some of my new and favorite toys and sharing a quote from the fairytale man himself Hans Christian Anderson : "Just living isn't enough," said the butterfly fairy, "one must have sunshine, freedom and a little flower." After the month of rain and floods and storms that we've had this just seemed appropriate! We all need a little sunshine, freedom as we approach our celebration of independence here in the states and a "little flower!" While my word of the year is sparkle, I will forever be marked by the word bloom and all that it means. I hope you enjoy my project. I created a little plaque for my work area. I started with a spritz of water and some Ken Oliver Crafts Color Burst in Pthalo Green on Mixed Media paper! This is an AMAZING little product and I can't wait to get the new colors in July! That one little bottle has all of those colors in its little bottle...just a touch of powder, a little more misting and a little patting and voila! an amazing background! I stamped a little field of daisies in the corner. I printed the Hans Christian Anderson quote and stamped a light music background over it. The pages were trimmed and mounted on some black and shiny sequins and beads were added for a bit of sparkle! Love it! I hope you do too!

Now hop along and see what my amazing crafty friends have shared!
