This week I am hosting a challenge on La-La Land Crafts Blog. I have decided to go with Shabby Chic :-) Please visit La-La Land Crafts Blog for inspiration from our wonderful Design Team and to play along.

Now.. Shabby Chic is not really my style.. and as much as I have tried, my card has only a slight resemblance of a Shabby Chic.. I do LOVE how it turned out though!! Princess Lala is one of my favorite stamps from La-La Land Crafts last release!! Doesn't she look like she is standing on the balcony awaiting her Prince Charming :-)

And guess what??!! Since I have her on my card, Princess Lala stamp is on a 20% OFF Sale until next week Tuesday!!! You can find her and other LLLC stamps in the online store, just click HERE.

This will also be one of the cards for my new upcoming "Fairy Tale" card class at Cranberry Hill Mercantile in Sunnyvale, CA. We will make three cards in this class. These cards will feature different techniques and designs. This class is scheduled for:
