Happy Monday everyone! Here in the UK we are enjoying the May bank holiday, so no work for me today Yay!. Hope you're all having a great day too.
I'd like to say a huge welcome to all my new followers, I hope you all find something you like here, and do please feel free to ask questions.
Before I get to the reason I'm here today I'd just like to announce that I've been asked to extend my original 2 months Guest Design Team spot at La-La Land Crafts, for another 3 months till the end of August!! I'm so excited and happy to stay on with this wonderful and FUN team for a little bit longer.
So this week the theme in La-La Land is 'For a Special Lady'. In America and Austrailia, Mother's Day is the 2nd Sunday in May, so I guess for some of the girls, this would be their special lady. But for me in the UK, Mother's Day is on Mothering Sunday, and so has already been and gone. So I figured that every lady is special in their own way, and we should all get to be a princess, at least in our own heads lol, so I made a princess card.
I used the following La-La Land Crafts items:
I've added links for products used that are available in the UK at the end of my post as usual.
LLLC certaining doesn't have a shortage of princesses, there are 4 different ones to choose from!! I chose Sassy Princess Marci, isn't she a complete doll? I paired her up with this very ornate Memory Box Die, and then made it more decorative by the addition of a crown (obviously!) and a set of wings cut with LLLC dies from glitter card. The paper is by Inkido.
She's coloured with Copics:
Skin: E0000, E000, E00, E11, R20, R11
Hair: E50, E30, E31, E33, E37
Outfit and Crown: BG10, BGBG13, BG15, R00, R12, RV42, YR20, YR21, YR24
I popped her out on foam and added some pearls and bling to her crown.
Some beautiful flowers from The Ribbon Girl and Wild Orchid Crafts and a very blingy crown nestling among them. The inside was decorated simply with a coordinating paper from the set.
I do hope you like my share for today, do hop over to the La-La Land Crafts Blog here to see the rest of the team's makes, they really are terrific and sooo creative, and don't forget that you can join us on Facebook and Pinterest
