Day 4 of Lala's Birthday Beach Bash

Welcome to Day 4 of our week-long Birthday Beach Bash & Blog Hop!!

OK, for this next game we are welcoming back some of our ALUMNI design members *Ü*

We're having a new hop every day this week and giving lots of prizes along the way!! If you missed out our past games and hops, please CLICK HERE and scroll down through the posts to follow along! It's worth it to take the time to go back and do all the hops!! They are short, but full of summer fun and creative inspiration! Remember to leave comments on all the blogs along the way because there's lots of "mystery party favors" to be given away!!

NEW GAME!!
"What did Lala take to the beach?"

Hop along design team members' blogs and find what Lala has in her hands and then come back to La-La Land Crafts Blog to leave your answer in your comment!!

As a reminder... [THIS WEEK ONLY!!] you can get your hands on our brand new character, Birthday MARCI in the shop as a digi, but hurry before she's gone!! Here is the link for you :-)

"BIRTHDAY MARCI"


And as promised, I have a new card with Birthday Marci to share with you today!!

I am REALLY HAPPY with the way this card has turned out!! But.. The photos really don't do this card much justice :-( It looks SO MUCH better in real life, you just have to trust me!!! It looks so sparkly and magical, I really wish you could see it life..



Beautiful sparkly paper is from SEI, On the Coast collection. Martha Stewart border punch. Punched border behind Marci was embossed with Cuttlebug embossing folder (hard to see on the photo, but it is there!!). I really wanted to have some scrolls to frame Marci, but I do not own any of die cuts of that kind.. really need to get me some!! So.. I had to improvise!! I used EK Success scroll and leaf punches. Flower punches are from EK Success as well. Rhinestones in the centers of all of the flowers.. Marci was colored with Copic Markers. I stamped one more image and cut out the present and panda, they are popped onto the main image for dimension. CUTE!!

Now, get on hopping :-) Your next stop is Cheryl!!
