December 3rd is holding a little story about Magic.
My oldest daughter, Arielle, and I had a discussion about magic when she asked me very seriously to buy her a REAL magic wand!! I didn't know what to tell her so I finally explained her that magic doesn't exist. It can exist in movies, or in your heart....you can make it happen with a smile or nice words, but you can't do magic with a magic wand.
Our discussion ended like that but several days later (around the 3rd), Arielle was watching a Disney movie and asked me again: "Mom, are you sure that magic doesn't exist?" And as she asked me, I was looking at her, thinking how Christmas is great at doing magic, at uniting families and friends. So I wanted to show the magic I see around me during this magical time of the year. :)
On the left page is a word art I created and cut out with my silhouette. It says: "Mommy, are you sure that magic doesn't exist?"
I added a small snowman and some rhinestones and I sewed (in red!) all around the page. We just see the thread if we look closely.
On the right page I used some polaroid frames from the Dear Lizzy Neapolitan collection. I left some os them as is and added only small die cut, rhinestone and button, and I used the other ones to frame some small pictures.
I attached a small shrink plastic charm that was left from my necklace making session with Arielle to the three with some baker's twine.
Here is my answer to Arielle's question: "Actually, I'm pretty sure that magic DOES exist..."
See you tomorrow for another page of my album. :)
