By the cute and Girly April-once upon a time!

I am hosting this months challenge over on BTC&G and I just realised my post for April 1st never posted and it has vanished?? I don't know if it's becuase my blogger changed to the new format or something but it never went up & I only realised today as I prepare my mid-month post.....

This is my first project for Aprils challenge Once upon a time......

 I bought the book in a second hand book shop for €1 and decided to alter it using graphic 45s Olde Curiousity Shoppe papers
 IN the corner of the cut-out window I have a Tim Holtz vial :) full of beads and some paper roses and prima bling
 This is the window scene of the shoppe :) I love all the quirky prints in this collection
 The little telephone charm is from a kit from and the butterfly is by Geraldine
 The pages are stained with Tim Holtz distress stain so you can still see the print then I inked all the edges and layered up pics from the graphic 45 papers and some skeleton leaves & another embroidered butterfly
Close up of my FAVE image-the flying pigs!

Thanks for visiting,
