It's Easter/Spring Time in La-La Land


This week in La-La Land we are celebrating Easter/Spring. I love this cute little Luka - or maybe it's that delicious looking chocolate bunny that grabs my attention ;) . My card base has been cut on my Cameo - LOVE this machine. And the La-La Land die cuts just finish everything off perfectly. Oh RATS - just noticed one of my rhinestones slipped - shhhhh - if I don't tell anyone no-one will notice - LOL

Glitter Mania in La-La Land


This week in La-La Land we are glittering up a storm! My only issue with this challenge is that it's very hard to photograph how sparkly this really is. The white circle is smothered in glitter and I've accented Marci's kimono with gold spica pen. And then there are the rhinestones. You almost need your sunglasses to see this is sunlight - and of course you also know I am wearing half a tonne of glitter now too - LOL.

And who better for this challenge that the Queen of Hearts herself!

A Simply Betty Sympathy Card


There are unfortunately those times in life when one must make a sympathy card and this week it was my turn. My husband's colleague recently lost her father and my hubby said he would get me to make a card for the team to sign. A while ago Corinne had made a sympathy card using one of the Simply Betty images and this is where the inspiration came for mine. I'm not sure if it's the same image - I tried to find Corinne's to link back but she's a prolific crafter and her version is somewhere among all of her other gorgeous work.

My husband wasn't too sure about this card though so I had to make a more traditional floral one for him - ah well. I just hope that this one gets put away for a long long time!

Time to Fence it In in La-La Land


This week in La-La Land we have to "Fence it in" - use a fence. With the gorgeous fence dies available at La-La Land Crafts my biggest decision was which one to go with - LOL. A little Wonderland scene ended up appearing on my desk - although I do confess my original project was binned after several hours of trying to get it to work! Luckily that doesn't happen to me often but it does happen ;)
