Fairytale Friday and "Hedgetrimmer....ooops!"

Good morning, crafty bloggers.
It's Fairytale Friday once again over at Teddy Bo towers but, before I go any further there is a little story to tell about the hedgetrimming graphic that I have chosen this week.
Gayle, my boss at Teddy Bo was cutting down a tree in her front garden when she decided to have a fight with the hedgetrimmer she was using which resulted in this:
Thank goodness Gayle's fingers are healing well.
So....that is the inspiration behind the graphic  and...........
This one is for you Gayle
