La- La- Land Crafts Birthday Blog Hop

Its Birthday time for Marci and Luka at La-La-Land Crafts, and to celebrate this special occasion the Design team and Design team alumni are having a very special Birthday blog hop! Are you ready for some Birthday fun? In addition to a fabulous hop filled with amazing designers and their creations, La-La-Land Crafts is giving away HUGE prize package!    
I chose Mermaid Marci for today's hop, I love how fluid her hair looks, and that sweet face! I colored her with a combination of copic markers and Prisma colored pencils. I added few little highlights with a white gel pen and some sparkle with sakura glitter pens in green and blue on her fin as well. These bitty pearls were the perfect to adorn her bikini top.

A shell shaped card seemed the only way to go! I cut the shell with the Cricut and embossed the pink shell layer with the musical flourish folder, a sprinkling of pearls and a swirl of rhinestones add shimmer and dimension to this soft colored card.


Thank you so much for stopping by, I hope you have had fun on Marci and Luka's Birthday blog hop so far. If you are just getting started, hop on over to Becca's blog to begin, if you have hopped along the way than your next stop is Arlene's blog.

A big Happy Birthday to the ever sweet Marci, and the always adorable Luka!And Congratulations To La-La-Land Crafts for a year of fun and inspiration with these amazing stamps!
