La-La Land Crafts is going soft

This week's La-La Land Craft's Challenge comes to us from Maureen, and she wants us to create a spring card all in Pastels! We're changing up the challenges a little, and encourage everyone one to play along, but in order to be elligible for the prize of $10 to spend in the La-La Land Craft's store you must feature a La-La Land image in your project. That's much easier now that we have several new digital images, and to help you out Easter Bunny Rosie (the image Maureen is using this week!) is on special all week for 20% off (making it ONLY $3.40!!!)

For my card this week, I chose to use the La-La with Rose image. I love her short and sassy hair in this image, and it's perfect since my little Julia just cut her hair on Monday and she looks a little like this with her cute blond hair and blue eyes! I used this week's Mercy's Tuesday Sketch Challenge sketch for my layout, don't you love that luscious silk ribbon??

I also knew I really wanted to paper piece this image and give her a cute print dress. This has been one of the biggest hurdles to me really getting into digital images...I love to paper piece! But how do you paper piece a printed digital image? That's why I thought I'd do a quick little tutorial on just that! Watch for that later today!

Be sure to check out all the loveliness created by the rest of the La-La Land Crafts team today - they are sure to knock your socks off! Then make your own pastel masterpiece and link it up on the La-La Land Crafts blog.
