Life is the GREATEST Fairy Tale

I have finally shaken off my creative block. It's kind of depressing to receive my fabulous SOD October kit and not feel the slightest inclination to create anything. Thankfully though last night my creativity came back!! Woo! Just in time too because my page for Little Shop of Sketches was due today. This bi-weekly's sketch is another one of mine.
Here is what I came up with:
My little sister's birthday is this month and I made this for her. She is obsessed with Snow White and the color purple. It took me forever to find a picture that would go nicely with purple. The title is 'Life is the GREATEST Fairy Tale' which a take off a Hans Christian Anderson quote. I printed the picture on vellum which I was inspired to do after I saw one of Lisa's (aka Raining) layouts. I love the effect.
I also made this for the Chippie challenge sponsored by 3 tails craft at Here are closeups of the three chippies. Two of them are the tags that I have the title on. I put the smaller one on top of the other. The last one is the small butterfly. I misted all the chippies. The smaller tag was also stamped and I added stickles to both tags.

I made the background with red and blue gelatos and with purple mist. I added letter stickers by The Girl's Paperie to create the squares of the sketch. The letters that I used actually spell out Snow White. You have to really look for it though ;)
And here's a picture of the big butterfly. I just love it. I had thought that something was missing on the canvas when this butterfly just literally dropped in my view. It was fate.

I don't think it will be another 2 weeks until I post something again. This project seems to have wakened up my creativity and I have at least three pages in my mind right now. The only problem will be finding time to create them!
