Guest Designer for La-La Land Crafts!

Hello friends and happy Monday!
Hope you all had a wonderful July 4th weekend!  We enjoyed time with family, food and fireworks of course! ;)

So today I have a special post to share with you all!
I have been asked to join the creative and talented people over at La-La Land Crafts  as a guest designer for a few months.  So of course I wanted to join in the fun with them! :)  I haven't had the pleasure of creating with any of their stuff, so I'm going to be having some fun here!  Hope you will come join along with me for the duration!

They have a wonderful blog FULL of  projects, tutorials and fun!
So for my first project, I joined with the "Team Monday" designers where they have weekly inspiration. 
For this Monday, the inspiration comes from this photo:
Certainly looks like a place that I'd like to spend some time this Summer, how about you?! :)
So I've decided to try and take one of these really sweet images and place her in he middle of this scene for my card.....
Now how cute is she?! :)  This is Beach Babe Marci which comes with two sentiments within the set.  I have used one of the sentiments on my card as well.
She's super fun to color and she's looking like she's ready for some Summer fun!

So for my card, I used some fun wavy blue papers for the background to mimic the photo and I even cut out two different blue wave borders to go along the bottom of the card.  The platform she's standing on is supposed to be the wooden planks (to mimic the photo) which I've placed at the bottom border of the design.  I also took some ribbon, twine and a button for accents along with some blue enamel dots at the top of the card front panel.

Here's a closer view of my coloring details:
Of course it's always hard to see in photos, but I've added some Wink of Stella glitter to the ice cream on her cone.  I did fussy cut out this image and popped her up with some foam tape in front of the waves border.

Hope you will stop by and see all of the wonderful inspiration over at the
La-La Land Crafts Blog!
