Exciting News

Hello again everyone, 2 posts in one day that doesnt happen often does it lol.
If you are looking for my earlier post for Noor Design UK click here ;-)

Ok so a few weeks ago I was contacted by the lovely Sandie & asked if I would like to be Guest Designer for La La Land Crafts for 3 months............would I are you kidding!!!!! Seriously I was sooooooo excited I couldn't type yes fast enough.
Then as it got close nerves kicked in & so now whilst still be excited I'm also incredibly nervous.

Anyway without anymore babble I am on Team Friday & this week our challenege is 
Strawberry & Cream.
I went with the colours......although Strawberry is one of my favourite fruits mmmmm. I made a gift set, a card with a matching little gift box. The card is smaller than normal so I
kept the embellishing on the low ;-)
The awesome stamp is 'Selfie Mollie' & I coloured her with distress inks.....I have actually coloured her up 3 times as I lurve this stamp ;-)
Colours used will be at the bottom of the post.
The papers are actually Maja Design 'A Gift For You', which shows that some papers can be used all year round.
In the top left square we have  a resin frame with 'Friend' in it which was cut from a scrap of DP. In the larger square I have used one of LLLC's fabulous Butterfly dies & added a red rose to the centre.
Flowers are from Noor Design UK.
Used some gorgeous lace & tulle trim & attached it along the bottom of the fabulous fence.
The little matching gift bag/box I made using my Silhouette Cameo.......yes hubster brought me one & I LOVE IT!! This is what I made with it, I got the template from the Silhouette Store.
Used more fabulous La La Land Crafts dies, they really are awesome dies, cut brilliantly every single time.

Colours used for Selfie Mollie are.........
Skin - Vintage Photo, Tattered Rose
Hair - Antique Linen, Walnut Stain
Dress & Boots - Fired Brick, Black Soot, Pumice Stone
Leggings - Pumice Stone
Phone - Spun Sugar, Pumice Stone

Hope you like my gift set. I still cant believe I got asked to be GDT.......I've been smiling that much I look like I have a coathanger in my mouth.

Please pop on over to the LLLC Blog to see the teamies fantastic creations....seriously STUNNING!!
I am in awe of them all!!
