Happy Wednesday Everyone! As you are reading this I am flying (safely I hope, LOL) to Denver and then onto San Diego. I should be landing 11 am CA time and then my class starts at 2 pm sharp so not much time to fool around (no flight delays please)! But it will be nice to be in a warmer climate and see some green---I'm so sick of brown and white if you haven't heard, LOL! So I will enjoy the milder climate for a bit and then I'm meeting my friend Val Stangle (Scor-Pal diva/Gina K DT sistah) for dinner. On Thursday I have some work to do and them I'm meeting some old friends for a day of fun and then I fly out on Friday for home.
Can I just say how much I love my family? LOL! No really they crack me up and we usually have a really good time when we do things together. We cooked breakfast for dinner on Monday night (chocolate chip pancakes & omelets, yum) and then we cleaned up having a sing-a-long to Journey's Greatest Hits, LOL! I know our neighbors think we are NUTZ, hee hee---we're always singing, bantering, screaming and acting goofy in our house. I'm sure some of you would think you'd entered into an alternate universe if you came to our house, LMBO! But we have fun and that's what its all about right! Here's a LINK of a video of our fave "Glee" cast singing a Journey song--it'll always make you smile I promise!
To answer my own question for my blog candy (yesterday's post below): My fave candy would be (I don't eat much candy, I don't really snack much and yes you can shoot me, LOL as one piece of candy does me for a whole week) BUT if I had to pick my top three it would be the Cadbury Mini Eggs (only available now), Godiva Raspberry Truffles or Twizzlers :)

Today I have another sweet La La Land Crafts project for you today featuring "Fancy Dress Marci"! Isn't she a sweetie? I decided to use lilacs because I think they are so under-used in the papers and embellies these day and they are sooooo darn pretty! I actually colored this cutie up for the NEW issue of the magazine "Through the Craftroom Door" for a copic article. I'll also have a video and pdf as well for it. Do you have a subscription yet of our mini magazine? You can find out about it HERE!
I used some DCWV papers "Floral Dreams" and then used my Zutter Distress Tool to distress all the edges for a shabby chic effect. The large border is from a newer MS border punch. I layered lots of Prima flowers (rosebuds are from Wild Orchid). I added a few stickles to the larger roses for some pretty sparkle.
She's just so sweet that I want to squish you! Copic Colors used: V17,V15,V12,V000/E11,E00,R20/YR23,YR20,E50/C3,C1,C00. The I added some stardust Stickles to the white sash and band on her dress, hair bands and roses on her shoes.
Hope you enjoyed this post and I'll have another one for you on Friday! Have a great week!
