Morning all papercrafters, thought we would try something a little different this week so come on one and all and lets see how imaginative/creative we can all be

Once upon a time (well a story just has to begin like this eh?) there was a brother and sister, Oliver and Emilia. It was the school holidays and they decided to go for a walk across the fields. They came across a little wood, with butterflies, a little stream, it was so magical

so they thought they would wander and have a paddle in the stream…

Thanks for another week Carol!

As they were paddling they admired the beautiful colours around them, especially the lovely wild roses

The butterflies were flittering amongst the pretty flowers

What a perfect day, they got tired of paddling in the stream, they lay in the sun and dried their little toes off then wandered through the pretty wood. They heard a noise, so followed it and there in a glade they found a small playground… the sound was a little girl playing on a swing, she was having such fun. Come on Emilia, lets go and make friends.

It just so happened that it was the little girl’s birthday, so her brother decided to pick some lovely flowers and wish her Happy Birthday x

…and a little gift, In the form of some cute notebooks

And of course a Birthday needs balloons

And at a party we make a wish and here comes the fairy to grant the wish…dawn

(Cariad Crafts) #13

and to make sure the wish comes true you just HAVE to blow the candles out on the cake

I wonder what Emilia will wish for???

(Stephanie Short) #14

Some pretty flowers …maybe?

(Katy Edwards) #15

Emilia closed her eyes very tight, hoping for her wish to come true, she heard a little pop and when she opened her eyes a present, beautifully wrapped up, was sat in front of her…

She was so excited, I wonder if it is a little kitten - I would love one of those, or could it be the biggest box of chocolates in the whole world or could it be

a beautiful carriage taking me on a magical journey??

I wonder I wonder

She gently unwrapped the wrapping and the little message tag

And she was getting very excited to see what was inside…

(Cariad Crafts) #18

Emilia stopped unwrapping and looked around her. There was Oliver, their new friend from the playground, little rabbits, butterflies, buzzy bees, all waiting and watching to see what the present would be. She was amazed, it really is a magical place

(Cariad Crafts) #21

Well Emilia could wait no longer, so she slowly undid the beautiful ribbon bow, unwrapped the paper and there - what a beautiful surprise - a lovely little japanese doll. Oh I have another new friend now, I wonder what I will call her

Oliver can you help me with a name?
