When I grow up...

I like Rosie's idea of an ATC telling a story. I 've been playing with old photos today and found this one of me when I went to ballet classes. Someone once asked me what I wanted to be when I grew up and I remember saying I wanted to be a fairy.
Shame I didn't manage it - that would have been considerably better than being a teacher. Oh well... maybe there's still time.
Hope you're having a good weekend.
Hugs Linda x

What a nice goal to be a fairy - you could give everyone their wishes with the snap of your wand!

Lovely blues on this!

How nice to be an inspiration to somebody! Your fairy is a sweetheart - can I be one too please?

I love this atc but can't picture myself as a fairy , never was that graceful! I always wanted to be a butcher (?!) but grew up to be a vegetarian!!! How does that work?
Anyway, lovely work. xx

Its a beautiful ATC. You may not be a fairy but you seem to have the magic fingers of a fairy to produce this beautiful ATC

I couldnt think of anything nicer than being a fairy. This is a fab atc, I love it! What a great job you have done, You could do yourself a whole set of pictures when you were young. Whilst you have out your magic wand, can you nip over to my blog and wave your wand to get me one of those Crafting storage cupboards, the link is there at the top of my blog, its about the only way I will get one if its a wish thats being granted! I will be patient and wait.....Jaqi x

Oh my, this brought back memories of sewing lots of ballet costumes for our girls!

Wouldn't kids just go nuts to see their teacher flying around their desks? That's a great ATC!
