By The Cute And Girly - April

It's been an amazingly busy week, I think every one wanted to get their business concluded before the Easter holidays began.  As a result I have been out 3 evenings and one full day and I am tired and looking forward to not getting up for school in the morning.

A little later than I normally post, it's time for our April theme at By The Cute And Girly and it's a fab one - 'Once Upon A Time.'  Thanks to Aideen for setting this one and  I am sure she wouldn't have known that today is the day that the US series launched here in the UK.  I have just finished watching the first episode when I should have been blogging my challenge entry!  It was great and had our own Robert Carlyle in it too, looks like he's playing the bad guy, what he does best.  I'm hooked and will be watching again next week, but anyway, back to the challenge.  This month's digi sponsor is MilkCoffee and I've created my fantasy image using the Charlotte at paper ship image.
She has been printed directly onto book paper and coloured with pencils. The page has then been inked and distressed with Distress Inks and Mr Huey spray.  Tim Holtz images have been stamped over the top and the 'May your dreams come true' sentiment is from a Papermania set.
The papers and embellishments are all from the new Pink Paislee London Market range and I have used a piece of card from a Dovecraft First Edition pad in the Bird Song design to make the card base.
Our generous sponsors this month are providing the following prizes.

2nd prize Joanna Sheen

3rd and 4th prizes Milk Coffee

Pop over to the main challenge blog to see the full details, challenge rules and all of the other inspiration from our design team.
