Sophie's Fairy Party :)

Sophie celebrated her 7th birthday this Friday at the beautiful Ivy Cottage with 10 other little fairies and a pixie (Benji). She had a magical time and enjoyed every second. She fell in love with fairy Serena (the lady in charge of her party) and the look of wonder on her face as she made her fairy wishes, listened spellbound to fairy stories and hunted for fairy treasure was priceless. I took about 100 photos and these are two are Sophies favourite (the main photo) and mine (the smaller photo where all the little girls are sitting in a fairy circle with their eyes closed making their wish).
My October Afternoon 'Sidewalk' papers really capture the magic of childhood and work well with these photos. The design is based on this weeks sketch over at Sketchy Thursdays. I used a lot od spray ink on thhis one to change the colours of my flowers and trims to co-ordinate better with the papers. One of the things that I love about OA collections is that they are cream-based rather than white. This gives them a softer look. I used Studio Callico (Mr Huey) 'Calico Cream' spray to get my white embellishments to tone in better with my papers.
