I am pleased to present you all with my pocket letter that I created themed off of Once Upon a Dream by Liz Braswell.  It was a lot of fun to make!  I actually had the perfect pad of paper to use to create the backgrounds of the cards too!  It must have been destiny :)

This first card represents our main character who just happens to be a princess.  In fact, the princess in question in Once Upon a Dream is Aurora from Sleeping Beauty.  This story is actually a retelling of her story, but instead of waking up when her true love kisses her - he falls asleep! 

This card here is for the author of Once Upon a Dream Liz Braswell.  I've got to say, after reading this book by her, I am very interested in reading more of her work. 

Here I share with you some of my thoughts on Once Upon a Dream.  Simply put I thought it was a great idea and a very clever spin.  Though it did end up being darker than I thought it would be.  Over all though, I am happy with what I experienced.

Ahh the ever important washi sampler pocket.  This one I went with some love themed washi tapes and a pink polka dot one because I liked it and thought it went with the pocket letter over all.

I don't really think I need to explain this card to you, but just in case I do - it is the title of the book.

Probably my most complex card.  On one level it is representing our villain Maleficent.  Then it represents that Aurora is trapped in a dream....and then it also represents Aurora.  When you read it, that last one should make a little more sense.

Of course you can't have a Sleeping Beauty story without Fairies!

And finally we have the piece that represents the prince.  He is a good hearted fella.  He also is very firm in his belief of having fallen in love with Aurora at first sight.
