And as the seasons
come and go…

The past few days, it was all about Harlee Quinnz Degins!
We worked so hard, the Design Team made a lot of layouts with those
fantastic paperlines (as did I, but more about that in a minute)  and my
beloved and I helped their web mistress to put the shop and blog online.

The website itself will be updated too, but the shop is now online so
you can get those wonderful papers and stamps yourself… also, the
Harlee Quinnz Design Team blog is all set to go… some layouts are already
uploaded in the galleries and the posting will start soon.
Make sure you take a look, and come back for more every week! 

In between, I found time to create this little harmonica album…
(There will be a tutorial about how to make this on the
Harlee Quinnz Designs blog in the next couple of weeks,
I’ll keep you posted on that…)

It’s made with
Harlee Quinnz 
paper & stamps and
I wrapped one of
their fibers around
it to keep it closed.
The colours go
soooo well
with the paper,
don’t you think? 



This is the front
without the fiber.
The title is written
(after a printed
example) with
a sharpie.

“Faeries”  is the
old English word
for fairies and
because I wrote
an old nursery
rhyme in this
book, I used
the old spelling.



(with fiber)
















I used two sheets of the Harlee Quinnz Design paperline “Butterfly Garden”
The yellow paper is called “Sunlight Bower” and the orange “Summers Garden”
I tore the paper into pieces and glued it on a folded piece of cardboard.
After that, I stamped fairies from the “Fairies set” randomly with Stazon ink
on the pages.

I handwrote the nursery rhyme with a sharpie. The first part of the rhyme on
one side, and the second part on the other side. 

“And as the seasons come and go, here’s something you might like to know. 
There are fairies everywhere: under bushes, in the air,
playing games just like you play, singing through their busy day.

So listen, touch, and look around – in the air and on the ground. 
And if you watch all nature’s things, you might just see a fairy’s wing”

Look at how cute those fairies are!!!!


I hope you all like my litte harmonica album!
Don’t forget to pay the Harlee Quinnz Design Team Blog a visit soon,
and don’t forget to visit me Friday for the Lotus layout.
You’ll find me with a little party head on then because

* Friday is my Birthday *

and I’d love to hear your “Hooray’s”…
so see you then!

    Just love this design, and I absolutely love what you have done with the HQD blog! I cannot imagine how much work you have done, but the blog looks just super! I know how much HQD appreciates your hard work. I did an online crop at Scrapgal this past weekend and then have been painting like a madwoman this week not to mention working also but this weekend I will be doing some more HQD playing. I just love seeing what everyone is coming up with. Have a great week and happy birthday! So you are a Libra, so am I, but my BD is much later in the month. October is my favorite month (I wonder why) and I have always thought that there are lots of fabulous people born in October – don’t you agree? LOL!
