I'd like to say a special THANK YOU to all our servicemen & women...for protecting us, our country, and our many freedoms! My dad was a retired 1st Sargent in the Army so Memorial Day has always been a special day in our family. He passed away several years ago when my son was 6 months old. I wish my dad could have spent time with Isaiah now that he's 5....he would have loved it!
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:
INSPIRED BY A FAIRYTALE
I used to not be a cartoon kind of girl. Of course that all changed when Isaiah came around! Now it's nothing but cartoons and kid movies!! And, of course, one of my all-time favorite fairytale's is The Little Mermaid! I used the super-cute Mermaid Marci and handsome Prince Luka for my card today....they were so much fun to color up!

I also used some of La-La Land Crafts' AWESOME new DIES!! I tripled layered the Wave Border Die right below Mermaid Marci, and used the Island die from the Clouds, Sun & Island Set along the sides. These dies are sooooo versatile and they cut like butter! I run it through my Cuttlebug a couple times and all the little pieces just pop out.
I also raised several elements on pop-dots for added dimension which you can see in this side view. :)
