end of summer
is the wonderful theme over at G.A. this week chosen by Nancy Dooren, the talented hostess of the week.
The end of summer for me means the beginning of fall, relief from the sometimes oppressive heat and humidity we have at this time of year, leaves turning colours, although we don't get a lot of colour here, mostly yellow and brown, and kids back to school!LOL
I walked to a friends house today to try out her Cricut, to decide if I needed one (YES, I do!!!) and as I was looking around I noticed there was a different quality to the sunshine, more fall like, and that leaves were already falling off the trees, probabaly doe to the fact that we have had no rain this month, but I decided the fall fairies were already out and about playing their tricks on Mother nature!! Hence my fall fairie.
I used coordinating paper and vellum in a leaf theme, used a fairie image that I cut off the wings and attached skeleton leaves for them and had her surrounded by leaves.
Hope you like it!
