We have some wonderful Blog candy! The Scrapbook Stamp Society has agreed to sponsor the hop and will offer $12 worth of FREE fairy related digis as a prize for this hop. All you have to do is visit every blog and leave a comment. We would sure love it if you would start following our blogs too.
And now onto my project! This is something I've had in mind to make for a while so I am very grateful this hop came along to give me the incentive to get it done. My project today is a Tooth Fairy Box, to hold all of my son's lost teeth. When he was 5 and lost his first tooth he was very sad that he would never see it again so together we wrote the Tooth Fairy a note and asked her if she could leave his tooth instead of taking it away with her and the Tooth Fairy being the sweet and loving fairy she is, agreed and has left each tooth since. I created this beautiful box to keep his precious little teeth in forever so that none will be lost.
