La-La's Birthday Beach Bash Begins!

Please join us for a fun-filled, week-long celebration for La-La Land's FIRST BIRTHDAY!!  Lots of games hops and PRIZES!

Welcome to our Birthday Beach Bash Blog Hop!! (Wow that's a LOT of "B"s!) *Ü

Today kicks off the one year birthday of LaLa Land Crafts and we'd like to invite you all to come join the fun!! Our DT have put together some amazing beach-themed cards and we have some fun GAMES & PRIZES all week long!! The more you hop and leave comments, the more chances at winning some great prizes! In addition to 3 prize packages (1 for each of the games) at LLLC this week, our DT/Guest DT and Alumni will be giving away "Mystery Party Favors" as well so be sure to leave comments along the way! *Ü*

So let's get started!! If you just "happened" across my blog, please start at the LaLa Land Crafts Blog! Trust me... these will be very short hops, but there will be a new one each day this week! If you've been hopping already, then you should've came here from Jan's Blog.

This game is called The BEACH BALL GAME!

We want you to count up the number of beach balls on each card (watermarks or other beach balls, if in the stamp itself) and leave your answer (total of all beach balls that you found) back at LaLa Land Crafts Blog.

I had so much fun with last week's SHAKER CARD challenge that I decided to make another! This time using Mermaid LaLa. (click the pic to enlarge for detail) I didn't tape or pop dot Mermaid Lala, she's just in there swimming around amongst the "waves" *Ü*

If you've been following this hop, then you must've read the GREAT NEWS!!! Irina has started a new line called "Marci" that she drew herself and you can get her in digi form this week only!! Irina is following her dream she had of sketching out characters herself and we couldn't be more excited for her. There are several in production as we "speak" so stay tuned for this cute new line in rubber stamps, coming to LaLa Land Crafts!! And now, introducing the first in the Marci line...

"BIRTHDAY MARCI"

Isn't she adorable?! Irina will be sharing cards made with Marci all this week, so you don't want to miss those! Ok, I'm the last person for today's hop, so please go back to LLLC blog and tell us how many beach balls you found in today's hop participants' cards!! *Ü* There will be a new hop tomorrow so hope you'll come back and join the fun again!!

Great card! Love the colors you used. I love shaker cards, but I think this is the first time I have seen the stamped image able to float around too. Fantastic idea, especially for Mermaid Lala.
