Life is Beautiful - Show Us Your Stuff challenge March 2017

Good evening lovely peeps,

Just in time I see....

I had just a weeny window of time this week - due to the exTropical Cyclone Debbie, keeping me indoors as requested by the Queensland Premier. 
So I decided to take some time off my job hunt to complete the March Show Us Your Stuff challenge.  

You need to choose 4 items from the 'this or that' list to include on your page - stars or hearts, sequins or buttons, washi or ribbon, spots or stripes!  You also need to include a handmade item :)  

You will see I've used stars (stencilling); buttons, washi tape (yellow with white stars) and spots (on the background paper), handmade doilies (comic), and handmade filigree

Quote of the Day

butterfly kisses

My fairy

Your fairy is called Columbine Goblinglitter
She is a bringer of riches and wealth.
She lives in mushroom fields and quiet meadows.
She is only seen in the light of a shooting star.
She wears lilac and purple like columbine flowers. She has gentle green wings like a butterfly.
