Once Upon a Time...

     When I want to relax and pamper myself, I reach for a book.  Since early childhood, when I first learned to read, I have enjoyed being transported to different places and times simply by reading words on a page.  But this image, from A&T Emerald Faeries, with the fairy reading to her little ladybug friends really touched the fantasy button inside me.  The polka dot dp is also from A&T.


Sketch from Digi Sketch
and colors from Bastel-Traum.

  

     Really quick post today because I have so much to do and I'm already running way behind on my intended schedule.

How adorable and the little ladybugs are being so attentive. They are like you when reading, being transported to another place. That's wonderful. I love her hair and your sweet ribbons/pearls.

So darling! I love the sweet image- love your coloring- the pink hair, the pink flower and the lovely pearls : ) I loved to read- frequently read with the covers over my hear with a flashlight on school nights when I was young....when I should have been sleeping. Most likely Nancy Drew mysteries : )
