Fairy Tale Friday

Monday 19th November was World Toilet Day (, and Maritha who spends all her life singng Abba songs and drinking vegetable forms of alcohol decided to join forces with Debbie and clean the toilets...they decided that the girls were needing to understand how lucky they were to have a safe, clean loo to use every day.

They picked out planks of wood, a hammer and nails, and blocked the only door into the toilet to prevent the girls getting entry (obviously they did the toilet herself first!).

The girls arrived for their morning rituals, showers and stuff, only to find a big sign on the toilet door saying "Toilet closed until further notice".

Now the girls could have survived for a wee while, but it had been an evening of booze and chasing men about the pub. There were half a dozen women standing outside the toilet jumping up and down from one leg to another. "What'll we do?" said Gayle, rocking back and forth.

Colette replied "You'll need to hold it in, or go down to the village green to the public toilets".

And so the girls in their pyjamas, housecoats and slippers paraded out of the house and down the street to the toilet.

They were making good time, and Claire could have made it if they hadn't passed the Jenkins' house just as the garden sprinklers set off. The urge became too much and she raced into the nearest bushes. A contented "aaaahhhhh" was heard by the girls.

"Disgusting" said Gayle. "Come on girls" and they all sped off to the public loo.

Some of the girls started to run in the hope it would take their minds of of the urge. Gayle walked behind determined to remain in control of her bladder. However, everywhere she looked she saw fountains and dripping taps, then it started to rain, and Gayle was behind a tree.

The girls eventually got to the public toilet, only to find it locked. The park hadn't been opened up yet. No matter how much shouting and screaming the girls did, no one came to open the toilet. The girls were all about to burst.

Then on Wednesday, the local newspaper, the Village Chronicle, had an article stating that all the flowers in the rose garden had wilted and died in the past couple of days. It wouldn't take Sherlock Holmes to work out why.

Once the toilets were cleaned the girls were able to get back to their card making (thank goodness!!)

I've used the gorgeous TeddyBea_247 and coloured with promarkers and then used LOTS and LOTS of glitter and flock! The backing paper is whitewash/lilac co-ordination paper that I have debossed using my Snowman folder. I have then layers it onto glitter card and dark purple co-ordination paper, which is the same that I have used on my 1st rosette! The sentiment was a freebie from HERE

I have used  Teddy Bo-221 light on candle - the back of the candle reads "Baby's 1st Christmas"

I have used Teddy Bea 228 Light on this candle - the back of the candle has "Baby's 1st Christmas" on it

I used "Post Me A Letter" (Fairy_Snowy6.)
Bearly Mine Design Paper.
Core-dinations card and Stickles and White Pearl Pen.
