Creative Inspirations Challenge 17....and a few challenges combined..

Over at Creative Inspirations this week the lovely Louise has set the challenge
a colour combo-
Lilac/Purple and grey and Louise also has a fantastic prize for the lucky winner so pop on over and check it out and look forward to stopping by and seeing all your creative projects.
I thought my crafting mojo had deserted me as i was sitting in my shed on Friday night hauling out papers,pulling my hair,embellishments, stamps,inks,paints scattered on every available surface when suddenly thank goodness i thought about the wee fairy folk..why i hear you ask...well the window of my shed looks on a part of my garden that has a log,moss,stone and toadstool and it was so pretty and i had taken a picture of it through the week on a rare dry spell of weather and bingo that was how the Fairy trunk came to be....
I promise no Fairy was harmed in the making of the trunk box,the wings of this little fairy was all i managed to capture when i clicked the camera, she was a tad camera shy and in rather a hurry to join in the festivities, please be reassured that after the camera flashed the door popped open and a rather pretty {if rather irate} fairy popped back out and sorted herself out.
The magical knocker that you must knock on the front of the box trunk 3 times.....
Fairy dust to sprinkle around the trunk and the magic key to hold.....

and the little summoning spell goes...
sprinkle a little fairy dust around the trunk
take the magic knocker
and knock three times
hold the key
and close your eyes
and say with all your heart
" I do believe in the Fairy Folk....."
why not try it and see for yourself what happens...just remember for it to work you must really really believe...Good luck!!!
The magical ingredients.....
1."Believe" it is sooo important for it all to work
2.Blank Box
3.Basic grey Wisteria papers
4.Basic Grey Wisteria Rub ons and Brads
5.Fairy dust in a glass bottle...collected from a magical ring of mushrooms as the dawn breaks right after a Fairy Gathering
6.Magical key..these are really hard to come by best to try a witchy shop.
7.Fairy knocker and Handle{magical hatpins touched by the Fairy Queen,well i am a tad mad and my maiden name is Queen,lol}}
8.Fairy wings well as i explained that was accidental,lol.
I would also like to enter it over at Crafty Creations where the challenge was to use 3 patterned papers.
Papertake weekly challenge is Fairies/angels
Craft Challenge is anything but a card
La La Land crafts challenge is Bling...fairy wings , fairy dust and hat pins
Well Fairy tidings to you all and thanks for looking and if you want to see inside..........................
well believe in the Fairy folk and maybe one of these days i will let you all have a wee keek.
P.S. This is the picture i took in my back garden.....
