Lollipop Crafts #86 - Sponsor Spotlight

Hello everyone!!

It's been a while for me. Hope you all have been doing well.  I've been trying to stop by blogs and check on what you all have been up to because honestly it's just been to hot to craft!  Whew, you all just inspire me to create.  Been having some power issues with the heat and all, but hopefully things will start to cool down and no more FLEX hours.  A girl can only hope, right? :)

This week at Lollipop Crafts I am so excited to share about our sponsor for challenge # 86, La-La Land Crafts. Irina is offering the winner of this week's Lollipop Crafts #86, "Fun in the Sun" challenge a $10 gift certificate to the La-La Land Crafts Store. Don't forget to play along.  Now here's a little bit more about our sponsor:

"Welcome to your happy place, your crafting La-La Land"
Owned by the dynamic duo of Irina Blount & Eric Berry, La-La Land Crafts has been debuted in July 2009 when they introduced their first character La-La.  In August of 2010 they introduced two very special characters to the world, Marci & Luka.  We have come to think of them as the ambassadors of La-La Land Crafts.  They also have a very sophisticated line called Girlfriends and a fun line of critters.  La-La Land Crafts specializes in red rubber stamps, digital images and recently added an amazing Die cut line.  Their main images of Marci and Luka are without a doubt fun to play with and can be used in so many different settings.  That can also be said for all of their images and now die cuts.  With so many versions of Marci and Luka you can't help but think of them as your own kids. 
Not only do they have amazingly talented owners, but they pride themselves on bringing these images to life with their fabulous design teams.  Stop by the La-La Land Blog and you'll definitely be inspired.  Each month you can upload your new La-La Land Crafts creations to the Customer Gallery and who knows you just might win a prize. .  Did you know that they can also credit having one of the only Kids Challenge Blogs?  Yes, kids 16 and under can play along in their bi-weekly challenges for prizes and visit for inspiration.
With a huge following in the UK and the USA, if you're not a fan of La-La Land Crafts, you will be.

For my project I chose to do another tag/bookmark using one of my favorite Luka images, Sitting Luka and the Brick Wall stamp.  He's hanging out at the beach checking out the Summer sunset.

I have to admit that I colored Luka months ago and only now decided to add him to a project.  Sorry, that means I have no idea what Copics colors I used on him. :(  If I can remember I will be sure to update.  I handwrote "ALOHA" on to the front of his cap, turned out pretty cool.  I found some cool paper and trimmed it to the width of the brick wall.  Distress inked the edges all around and topped it off with some thick twine.  He's actually popped on some pop dots.  I think I waited for the right time to add him to a project.

Don't forget to visit the rest of the A-Team this week over at the LC blog and you might see something fun from Mama La-La, Irina.  They have more fun La-La Land Crafts projects to share.  Mahalo for stopping by today and hope you get a chance to play with us at Lollipop Crafts!
