I made a Fairy Garden! Plus some exciting news!

Good evening everyone!

Before I get going on my planned post for today, I wanted to share some exciting news with you.  So as you know from my last post, I entered a blog challenge with the Kenny K Krafty Krew.  Well guess what??  My project got selected by the designers as TOP 3!!!  I am SO excited!!  I am a HUGE fan of the Kenny K images, so this is a real honour for me :)  So check out my shiney new Blog Candy on the side bar!  I also get a FREE Kenny K digi!!  I'm on Cloud 9!!

So now, back to my regularly scheduled (yet 3 days late) blog post.  You guys, I drank beer and made a Fairy Garden on the weekend!  My sweet friend Mel surprised me with this kit from Michael's a little while ago, and the weather was FINALLY nice enough for me to get out and do it!  J and I went to Canadian Tire where we got the container, soil and a few plants, and then he cracked me a beer and said "Get to it!", and I did!

My supplies
This kit is available at Michael's
I bought this at Canadian Tire for $19.99, I love it!

Rocks in the bottom so I can be cheap with the soil lol

I used those flat back lass marbles to make the pathways, they are BEAUTIFUL when the sun hits them!

Had to make sure to get a shot so you can see the fence!

English Daisy - Galaxy Red

Osteospermum - Astra Pink (African Daisy)

Pepper Purple Flash

 I am SO happy with how this turned out!  I also planted green onion seeds in the empty spots, so hopefully they will grow up and be edible :)  I hope to find lots of goodies to put in here over the summer.  Who knows?  Maybe the Fairies will bring me something lol

Have YOU made a Fairy Garden?  Send me pictures, I'd love to see!
