Something a bit different!



I was so inspired by my sons' creation at preschool the other day, that I just had to try it.
So this is what he made.

An egg decorated with colored egg shells left over from Easter. I thought it was so eyecatching & immediately pictured
those colored egg shells on a pair of fairy wings.


So I used my all time favorite image from Prairie Fairy Designs called TipToe Fairy to accomplish my egg shell fairy wings. Now the wings probly would have looked better with a bit of yellow, but we did not use any yellow colors on our eggs this year..... crazy right?


It was so much fun to put these egg shells on, almost like a puzzle. Oh how I miss being a kid!
I also used some of my long lost fabriccy type papers to help my fairy stand out.
Tag sentiments are from Whimsy.
