Inspiration Monday--Inspired by a FAIRYTALE!

Happy Monday y'all! It's Rosie here to welcome you to another Inspiration Monday.

For those of us in the U.S., we are celebrating Memorial Day today. I'd like to say a special THANK YOU to all our servicemen & women...for protecting us, our country, and our many freedoms!

This week at La-La Land Crafts we have a challenge that I hope will have you thinking outside the box a little! This week our theme is:


I used to not be a cartoon kind of girl. Of course that all changed when my little boy, Isaiah, came around! Now it's nothing but cartoons and kid movies!! I hope these AWESOME creations from our DT will have you thinking outside the box and dreaming big too. :)

If you want to know which movie inspired each card below, then please visit each DT's blog by clicking their names below. You may even be able to guess some of them by looking at them. :)

Wishing you Happiness!

Here is my take on this week's challenge - Spots and Stripes.

I tried a few things with Copics on my card.  I was inspired to color hair in this style by Rosie.  I added flowers to Marci's dress and the Lantern after seeing Debra's coloring.  Thank you SO MUCH to both of you for inspiration!!!

My card features some NEW products from La-La Land Crafts.  I used our Marci with Lantern plus some of our new DIES - Filigree Corner and one of the butterflies from the Butterflies Set.  Sentiment on my card comes with Marci stamp along with the coordinating string of lanterns stamp.

This card measures 6" x 6".

  I popped Marci's lantern for a 3D effect.

Project Recipe:
Stamps: Marci with Lantern (Sentiment and Accessory Stamp INCLUDED)
Paper: Bazzill Cardstock, Echo Park 
Tools: La-La Land Crafts Dies - Filigree Corner, Butterfly, Rolled Rose (coming soon!),
Other: May Arts Ribbon, Mark Richards Pearls

Skin - E50, E51, E53
Blush - R20, R30
Hair - BV31, BV23, BV25, BV29
Outfit - RV00, R81, R83, R85
Flowers Design - R85, T5
