La-La Weekly Wednesday Challenge

Howdy Pardners! It's time for another fun challenge at La-La Land Crafts today! But first, I'd like to introduce you to none other than... COWGIRL LALA! See how versatile these cute stamps can be? I used Sitting LaLa and drew some boots and a hat to make her into a cowgirl!

Scroll down a little bit to see her upclose and to give your eyes a bit of a break! LOL - I realize this is a TON of green, but my li'l cowgirl loves lime green so this page for her.

Our challenge hostess this week is Maureen Wong and she'd like us to alter a store-boughten embellishment! There's examples over on our DT Blog if you're as stumped as I was, LOL! But I decided to take my natural hemp twine and make it into a flower (using glue dots along the way to secure the loops on back). My page kinda reminds me of a kids hide-n-seek puzzle... find the flower!! LOL.

For her hat I traced the "tiara" with clear stickles, but for some reason it's picking up all the surrounding color and making it look green. For the glitter trim, I actually did use light green stickles. Looks much better in real life ;^)

We'd love to see how YOU alter an embellishment! You have until Monday night to enter. Remember, you have to use stamps or digis from La-La Land Crafts to be eligible to WIN a $10 Store Credit or a TOP 3 award blinky for your blog!

The Sale-of-the-week item is... Birthday Cake Maya!! She'll be 20% OFF until next Tuesday.

Don't forget... there's lots of stamps from our first release currently 40% OFF right now through the end of April!! Come-n-Get-Em!! *Ü*

YeeHaw, what a fun, fun layout, Kristine!! I'll have to bring my horse-loving daughter by to see it. I just bought a book for her that your daughter might love too, "Careers with Horses, The comprehensive Guide to Finding Your Dream Job" by Vick Hogue-Davies

She is so pretty Kristine....right down to her sweet green eyes. This is such a wonderful memory for your DD. With 2 DD I bet after seeing this one there is an order for another one!!! You always amaze me with your beautiful work. Right now I am thinking I need your scissor skills. LOL I should have paid better attention to my Kindergarten teacher.

Have a great weekend!
