A Very Short Medieval Story Book


I created this card just for fun. I just thought that these images would go well together to make a scene.  I made this into a very very short storybook titled "Bringing home a pet dragon"...LOL.

We'll start off with the cover...

Then the title page...

and then the entire story.  LOL...I said it was very very short.

The End.

This is Lady Tilda (from the Fairytale Collection 2010) and in the background is Princess Castle (from Princes and Princesses Collection 2012).

This is Medieval Tilda riding on Princess Horse--both stamps are from the Princes and Princesses Collection 2012.  The trees in the background are Trees in a Row Large.  

This is Lilyrose--from the same Princes and Princesses Collection 2012.  Yikes...I didn't realize that was the dragon's name when I was colouring it.  I think it is suppose to be a female dragon.  LOL...I've changed it to a male dragon.

All these images are available from Diana's on-line store Magnolia-licious. The two exquisite Memory Box dies are also available there.   I used the Macarena Corner (sorry, currently out of stock) and the Delicate Vine--the dies are 5% discounted.

I am entering this into the following challenges:
Papertake Weekly - Anything Goes
7 Kids College Fund Challenge #46 - Make it Cute!
JustMagnolia hAnglar & sTanglar Week 155 – Anything Goes with Option of Swirls and Pearls
