The Fairest of them all

I made this layout of my daughter Shani quite sometime ago and have never posted it on my blog and now i know why?  They're having a challenge on By the cute and girly challenge blog for a fairytale, what better fairytale is there than snow white?  I am adding this link for Sir stampalot since this layout also fits their criteria.

Well blog hoppers, i drew and paper pieced each and every one of these dwarves, yes all seven of them. they stand about 4cm tall, teeny tiny, cut with scissors, no die cutting machines for this lot.  It was a true labour of love.  The log that they are walking across is also hand drawn, inlcuing all the wood grain.  On the first half of my layout i also wrote a little story in book format for my jounalling about how she loves to dress-up.  The second half of the layout is little "Snow whites cottage in the woods, with a spin as the whole page opens out to reveal all the photos that we took on that day.  I am one of those types of scrappers, if i take 20 photo's i gotta use them all, no more boxes for photos otherwise why scrap?
