Fairytales Layout

This layout was done for a challenge at in2crafts, in the scrapbooking group. The challenge was as follows: "make a page lay-out with any theme in the range of a fairytale..............anyway you see it........can be from a story book or just everyday life, but what you see as a fairytale...........
Some rules: the following items MUST be used!!!!!
Brads, Flowers, Tags, Your own wording of story, Borders, Lots of sparkle
and that is all the rules!!!!!"
So this was my interpretation. It's using pictures from my childhood.
I used ribbon to thread through beads and buttons. Sewed some buttons directly onto the page.
Added a lot of layering with papers and tags, and used some of my stencils.
