Dressing Up....

is always such fun.  And I got a La-La Land stamp calling "Dress Up Marci" while I was in Australia last week.  This is my first stamp from this company and I love how much fun it was to colour

Dress Up Marci

I used distress inks to colour in the image. Once I had coloured Marci, I trimmed her and set about making a background card using different purple card and some PP.  I tried a number of different die cuts before settling on the cream Couture Crafts doily die ( Note to self: USE WAX PAPER with this die.... 40 mins it took to pick out all the little bitty pieces out of the die)
Wish now I had bought more La-La Land stamps...

Now a few little pics from the holiday

As you can see lots of lovely sunny weather.  I even managed to have a swim in the sea on one of the days.   Stayed in for nearly 15 minutes as it wasn't too bad once you got over the initial chill shock.   The 6 days in Mooloolaba went so quickly but it was very relaxing.

Hope the week is going well for you all... and thinking of all my American friends as they commemorate the heroes of 9/11 and continue to mourn the loss of life in the destruction of the Twin Towers 11 years ago.

Love how you have designed this card, the doily die-cut looks beautiful with her and the colour palette.
