Elegant Fairy

Happy April 1st. I hope you haven't had too many April Fool's jokes pulled on you. I have a friend that pulled a good one on me last year and you would think that I wouldn't fall for anything from her this year. But, fell for it again. Oh well, I guess I'm hopeless.

Today I have a elegant fairy. At least she is that to me as Crafts and Me Challenge is for an elegant fairy. This is Teen Fairy Mia by Mo Manning. She is just gorgeous.
