Yesterday was Jade's birthday, and she's now 8 years old! For a gift, I made her a paper bag book, because she loves the one I made last year (here). She also loves fairies, so I made a fairy book out of an old calendar and some note cards I had. Here it is:

"Lavender loves to dance!"

"Buttercup loves to sing in the sunshine!"

"Wild Cherry loves to . . . play hide and seek in the tree tops!"

After church yesterday, Becky and I stopped at Friendly's (family restaurant) to get some ice cream. I said to her, "Wouldn't it be funny if Jade and her mom were here, because they live close by and come here occasionally." Well, about 30 seconds later, in walks Jade, her mom, sister, and grandmother, for a birthday lunch for Jade!

If I were a little girl, I would be over the moon for that little fairy book! I think I would love it as much if I were 80. Thank you for sharing such a sweet treasure. =D

Oh, that is so cute! How do you do your letters? I'm just thinking about doing some paper crafts. I just got an ME scrapbooking kit but don't know how to scrapbook..I'd like to make a garden journal and a few other things. I think I better Google paper crafts before I start!
Love that!
