a secret faerie ....

... purchased a crop seat for me at a scrapbooking retreat last weekend ... what a gracious and wonderful gift. I am so thankful secret faerie!!! I was able to spend 2 nites and 2 days scrapping with some wonderful friends ... and the creativity was just flowing ... it was one of those weekends where everyone seemed to be in the zone and ready laugh and play!  We stayed at the wonderful Timberline Ranch ... so we also got the chance to talk to the horses and pet the little creatures ... well except for the llama ... I stayed beyond spitting range just in case. Oh and look at the pretty little unicorn!!!  Okay, its really just  a miniature horse, and it doesn't have a horn but in my mind it is a magical little creature ... i first caught her napping ....


She's smaller than a donkey ... so adorable ... and sadly no one would let me take her home ...sigh ...


I got several layouts and several mini books and one project completed ... most of them will be finding their way to the Tiny Seeds blog before coming to mine ... but i will give you a little sneak peak of my favourite.

Want to see the rest???  just scoot on over to Tiny Seed's wonderful blog!!!


This is one of the layouts I made, very simple, i just used a beautiful piece of older Prima paper, a 7Gypsies tag, some Prima flowers on brown stems and I made this red flower and petals using sticky back canvas and grunge paper ... I painted it with a red glitter glam and then stamped it with french text.  I love the way it turned out and it was super simple to do!

Peace, love (in this case a heart shaped rock that I spotted at the ranch) & paper!!!

Before I read your post and saw the picture, I thought it looked like a unicorn too, LOL. Sounds like a great time.
