Spring at La-La Land

Good morning, Monday has rolled around again, but for once I don't mind work on a Monday because I'm on holiday for the rest of the week. Yay!  I'm here for my regular GDT spot over at La-La Land Crafts, and our inspirational theme this week is 'Spring'

I decided to use Paper Doll Marci - Spring Showers, because ...well...she seems so perfectly suited for an English spring!

La-La Land Products used:

All these stamps and dies are also available at Dies to Die for if you're in the UK or Europe.

I coloured her soft and pretty with Distress Ink markers.

Skin: Tattered Rose, Vintage Photo, Aged Mahogony, Victorian Velvet
Hair: Milled Lavender, Victorian Velvet
Outfit: Scattered Straw, Faded Jeans, Milled Lavender, Victorian Velvet.

I've matched her with some lovely Maja Design papers, from the Spring Basics collection.

I was very rushed for time this weekend, so I haven't decorated the inside yet, I'll do that later.

Well that's all from me today, why not share your own take on this theme in the La-La Land Facebook Group

I'll see you again soon, happy crafting! :) xx
