Daydreaming of You ...

Hey Ya's!  Are you all having a wonderful week?  I hope you are!

I have to share with you a little story about my lovebug Bodhi which happened this past weekend.  :)

There is a new Lego Store that opened up in town and I wanted to surprise him and take him there.  So I told him to get ready so we could go out.  
Bodhi says,"Where to?"
I said, "Michaels Craft Store."
Bodhi says, "Again?!!!!  We were just there yesterday?!"  ahahahahah - typical male response right?!!  ;)
I said, "I forgot something."
Bodhi says, "Okay."  ;) .. that's my boy!  ;)

Soooo .. we're driving .. and he doesn't even realize that I'm not even driving to Michaels .. LOL!  I arrive at the mall and he STILL does not think anything is different.  He just asks, "Have I ever been here before Mommy?"  I said, "Nope."

I had NO idea where the store was and although I tried to follow the directory .. it was basically useless to me and confused me even further.  hehe.  But all of a sudden, Bodhi saw an advertisement in the middle of the walkway saying, "The Lego Store is NOW OPEN" .. and this was his reaction ..

GASP!!!  **eyes HUGE and arms wrapped around me**  "Mommmmmmmy!  Did you know the Lego Store is here?!  You tricked me!!  Did you know you were taking me here?!  Oooh Mommmmmy!  You came here for me?!"

BUT!  The best part about it was .. his face.  :)  It lit up like it was Christmas Morning .. and his face got SOOOOO red with excitement .. it almost brought tears to my eyes because my heart felt so happy.  ;)  So after about 20 minutes .. we finally found the store!  lol!  And let me tell you .. I enjoyed it just as much as Bodhi did!  ;)

Anyway ... hehe .. I've made a card using one of LOTV's newest SWEET Fairies and this one is called "Catkins".  I've draped the rosebuds downward in hopes that it will resemble the flowers in the image.

The gorgeous lace is from a dear friend .. thank you so much I LOVE it!  :)

Hope you all got to spoil yourselves with these gorgeous fairies .. you KNOW you deserve it!  ;)

Please also check out my Beautiful DT Sisters creations on their personal blogs as well as on LOTV'S Inspirational Blog .. as they are just AMAZING!

Thank you SO much for sticking with me through such a long post and for visiting me .. I love it when you do!  I'll see you again soon!

Big Hugs,



Gorgeous and beautiful card Elise fabulous colour's and design and what a fabulous surprise for your little boy

Love your gorgeous card too, love the white lines. And yes, I did give in to the little fairies. And love them!

A beautiful story followed by a beautiful card and both of them super sweet. I must admit you made me feel very nostalgic for when my 2 were small and I used to dream up ways to surprise them *sigh* I do miss it, they're a lot harder to surprise now they're grown up lol.
Oh and I think your draped flowers work just perfectly :) xx
