Welcome to Our Sept Linky Party and Design Team Challenge!

Welcome to our Sept Linky Party,  DT Challenge and My Altered Fairy Garden. I'm on vacation so I set this up ahead and DT Members Vicki, Sheila and Kathy will be doing posts while I'm away and Shelley is back filling orders! Lucky us - in Spain and France for our 35th anniversary (see my budget travel tips).   

Please click on each of the Design Team ladies links below to see their fabulous creations! Then scroll to the bottom to enter our Linky Party and receive a $6.00 CS Gift Card to use in our store. A winner will also get a $50 gift card! You have until Mon, Aug 9, 12:05 AM to enter. 

Sadly, I have to say that Melissa Bove had to drop our DT but may be back if she gets more time and less stress.  We were honored to have her and I have to create a gallery of all her awesome samples!

I decided to use our Altered Fairy Scraps (only $1.95 now!) to make a little fairy garden to for a glass dome I found at a garage sale last week. I tried to see if anyone sells them and saw some domes on Ebay  but you could also use a little bird cage, a tea cup, plant pot, add them to a card and more. There are so many bits and pieces on this double sided sheet you can make multiple fairies and alter photos as well.

Two of the fairies remind me of my niece and nephew so I asked them to pick out all the accessories. Arissa wanted the cat and Kason picked the puppy and bird. There are so excited as Grandma gets to keep the Fairy Garden and she babysits (my mom and dad live downstairs).

I wanted a 3D look so I glued some wings together and found a glue gun worked great. I used it to glue spanish moss on a piece of green foam, wire to the heart earth balloon and little wood skewers on the backs to stick in the foam. 

I like the way the double wings look

In the end they picked out so many bits and pieces I couldn't get the dome over everything!

So I ended up putting them back to back and it worked great because the card stock is double sided so there are designs on the backside. I still need to add some glitter and a few gems and make up a enchanting little fairy story to tell them. 

Okay, now it's your turn to enter a sample you have created in our Linky Party. Click on the link below to add a sample you have created using any Crafty Secrets products (up to 4) and receive a $6.00 gift card (1 per person) and a winner will be announced next Mon, Sept 9 to also receive a $50.00 CS Gift Card!

Greetings! I know this is kinda off topic however , I’d figured I’d ask.Would you be interested in trading links or maybe guest writing a blog post or vice-versa? My site addresses a lot of the same topics as yours and I believe we could greatly benefit from each other.

First of all I want to say wonderful blog! I had a quick question which I’d like to ask if you don’t mind. I was interested to know how you center yourself and clear your mind before writing.I have had a tough time clearing my mind in getting my ideas out.I do enjoy writing however it just seems like the first 10 to 15 minutes tend to be lost simply just trying to figure out how to begin. Any recommendations or hints?
