Princess Land

So i am finished Chloe's Birthday present! phew!! just in the nick of time since her birthday is tomorrow. yup i am going to have a 2 year old. weird. but that is talk for another post!
So i picked up this baby for $1.95 at a thrift store in Montana. yes we thrift store shop everywhere we go. don't even worry about it.

You might be wondering why I am giving my two year old an old, beat up, puke green suitcase?? It's ok my husband was just as perplexed as you were!!

Well i had seen THIS post a while back and have wanted to make something similar but a little more girly....and I think I have achieved that goal!! I give you......PRINCESS LAND!! (i know the name is awesome right!? ha ha)

(you can click on the pictures to make them bigger)

Chloe has all these little princesses and fairies that needed a place to play that wouldn't take up my entire living room (which doesn't take much as its about the size of my island)



On the one side we have a beautiful waterfall, river, and lake....complete with a waterslide! and a cave for the fairies to live!

And on the other side we have a lovely meadow and castle with a corral for all the royal ponies!
The castle was donated by grandma dixie and actually goes to some polly pockets of Tina's. but it is pink and sparkly and it opens up so what could be bettet!?

It was really fun to make and it was actually pretty easy, Just a lot of drying time between layers. And then the best part is it just folds up with a snap and you can put it away!! Let's hope Chloe likes it as much as I do!!!

Happy Birthday to my little Princess!!

Well if Chloe doesn't like it, you can always give it to Lilly. She Told me that she NEEDS that. Maybe someday I'll be as ambitious as you are and try out some handy crafts like that. Very cute.
