LLWWC#49 Shake it!





Welcome to a new La-La Land Crafts Weekly Wednesday Challenge! Our challenge hostess this week is none other than super talented Maureen and she is asking us to create a shaker card. I have never made a shaker card, so this was a bit of a trial and error type project for me. I have to admit, I did cheat a little bit. I did not create my shaker from scratch. Instead, I found that the packaging for the Terrifically Tacky Tape looked pretty much like a shaker, so I used it. I guess you could say I "upcycled" it...lol!

Maureen used Princess Lala on her card, so that means that Princess Lala will be 20% off in the La-La Land Crafts Shop until next Tuesday. What a deal!

I used Beach Rosie for my card and gave her a beach theme, as I still had lots of the those tiny shells leftover from a previous card. Needless to say, I am officially out of those tiny little shells now :D

Everyone can join the fun, however, if you want to be eligible to win a $10.00 credit to use in the Lala Land Shop or a special Top 3 Badge to proudly display on your blog, you'll need to use a La-La Land image. Head over to the shop now and pick up a few of them. Also, be inspired by the DT's fabulous cards on the La-La Land Crafts Blog. We can't wait to see what you create ;D
