Chichiboulie Fairy

My shipment of Bella stamps has finally arrived!! I got a couple of the new little girl ones and a Chichiboulie fairy!! I was debating over Eloise or the reading reverie and I chose the later! I don't know why because the other seems to be the more popular choice but this one is really cute!! I am glad I got her because I got to make this card! My five year old is obsessed with reading!! I can't believe how quick she has picked it up and now she wants to either know how to spell everything or wants me to sit with her and let her read books to me ALL day!!
I wanted to make the card to let her know that I think reading is VERY important! Sometimes I think I disappoint her because I have way to many distractions and it is hard for me to sit for lengths of time without having other things that have to be done. Not to mention I have to entertain her two little sisters. It would be nice if the world would just pause while I kept moving!! (Wishful thinking! LOL)
Anyway about my card. The layout came from the Ismaki sketch challenge #4! I have wanted to use it for awhile but never got around to it til now. The paper is from Cosmo Cricket. I just love this pack. The papers are just beautiful. I also used Me and My Big Ideas rubons, ctmh waxy flax and brads and a flower from Hero Arts. I found the sentiment from a search and printed it from my computer. That's it!!
I just want to wish everyone a Happy Easter. I don't know if I will make it back until Monday. I am having 14 out-of-towners coming to stay with me for three days so I think I will be very busy!! I really can't wait though because it has been awhile since this much of my family will be together for a holiday!!

Well thanks for stopping by and have a great day!!
