A Very Special Fairy for Baylee...

Copied from the Paper Makeup Stamps blog...

Recently, Paper Makeup Stamps was contacted by 2 friends (Carole Chesser and Ashley Newell) about a sweet girl named Baylee Tadlock. At the age of 9 months, Baylee was diagnosed with Leigh's Syndrome. Leigh's Syndrome is a metabolic-mitochondrial disease. The family was told to expect Baylee's life to be only of about 2 years. That she would never walk, talk, sit up or even crawl. But Baylee was a fighter and a lover of life! She loved to ride horses! She loved disney and princess Ariel. Baylee recently went to be with our Lord on January 9th at the age of 13. You can read all about Baylee, her too short life, and her family's amazing faith at

One of our illustrators, Diem Pascarella drew this wonderful image. All proceeds from the sale will go directly to the Tadlock family. They have set up a scholarship fund in baylee's name with Project Ride is a program giving thereaputic but recreational horseback riding instruction to children and adults with special needs.

PMS is designating the money raised to go directly to the family so that they may use the funds as they need.

We thank you for your support in helping us to remember and honor sweet Baylee Rose.

Sonda is Baylee's mother and is a wonderful stamper/papercrafts business owner. I have known her through the online communities for about 5 years now. You will not find a sweeter soul and I am so glad that Katie has done this for the family. My heart breaks for them, but their faith is incredible and they are very strong.... But they still need your prayers as they go through this incredibly difficult time.

Baylee Fairy is a digital image which means that you simply print her up on your home printer/computer and use the image any way that you would normally use a stamped image. I colored her with my watercolor pencils and added her to some of my House of 3 digital papers that I also printed up and used as normal.

For my card, I used this week's sketch from GetSketchy (#21.)
