La La La, la la la la...........A stitch in time!

Hello fellow crafty people, back again with another post and some EXCITING news to share!!
I am now a La-La Land girl-WOOOOOOOOHOOOOOOO!
I have been waiting to share it with the world, you cannot believe how amazed, thankful, delighted, humbled and deliriously happy I am!
This a perfect little home for me, colouring the gorgeous La-La Land stamps is something I love to do.  I was first introduced to them back in May this year by the super awesome Mandi-Lee at our Copic Project course, needless to say the rest is history-lol!
Thank you to Irina and the talented team who have made me feel so welcome and put my fears at ease.


Anyhoo, let's get onto the Inspiration for this week


Our inspiration for this week is to use stitching- real or faux, or if you are really clever- both!!

I don't usually stitch but have squeezed some in, a criss cross stitch around the bottom of Fancy Marci's dress, a straight stitch in the ribbon and by fluke the DS paper is a stitched pattern!

I have combine this weeks La La Land challenge with the colours from PDCC96 and the layout from Sketchbook Saturday Challenge #26



The flower is made by running a thread through some white seam binding and gathered.
