Chipboard Fairies + Mushrooms + More

     Happy weekend everyone! It's starting to warm up around here, and I'm dreaming of Spring! What could be better than springtime fairies and mushrooms! This weeks goodies were inspired by Design Team Member Cat Kerr's ADORABLE project below. And of course, my own love for the wee wood folk! We also have new Paper Flowers, Collage Sheets, and more! Soak in that sunshine!

                                                    Art Time With Cat Kerr!
Do you believe in fairies? Well, we certainly do! Especially after seeing these amazing creations by Design Team Member Cat Kerr, who also inspired this week's goodies! We are especially in love with the sweet little cages she created from the Pedestal Shrines for the wee Fairies. So beautiful Cat! Stop by Cat's blog for the tutorial, more photos, supply links, and a bit of magic:
