Woo Hoo! I'm guesting at La La Lands!!

Hi Everyone!
I've been holding in a secret for a while now and now I can let out the news!
For the months of November and December I'll be joining the Design Team as a guest over at La La Lands!
I've been playing with their challenges for a while now and even been winning a few and now I can play along with the team and have my projects up for you all to see!
There are 3 other wonderful ladies joining the team for the same term as me and you can see their work at the links below.
Elena Joldersman The Red Headed Girl
Kristine Breach Ink Something
Moon Hulsman Scrapjes Van Moon

To showcase my new appointment I thought I'd make a new project with the super cute Sitting Lalaand I hope you'll like her!

Of course there are a few challenges that I used to help me with this.

Mojo Monday gave me the sketch
Corrosive Challenges wanted "Anything But A Card"
Creative Inspirations wanted a decorated bag
Double Dutch wanted a decorated purse
The Crafty Pad had a color combo of Green, Red and Gold
Opus Gluei had an "Apple Of My Eye" theme
Die Cut Dreams had a Food/Drink theme
My Creative Clutter wanted you to base your color scheme on your Favorite Candy Wrapper and I chose Starburst candies.

Although I used a card sketch I decided to use it on a gift bag.
The dp is from the Summer Song stack by My Minds Eye that I got at Hobby Lobby.
Lala is colored with Copic's and she's sitting on a hand cut apple.
I used the wonderful Eyelet Lace "Around the Edge" punch set as a background to the dp.
I replaced the raffia handles on the gift bag with ribbon and added a "silk" rose to the top.

Here's a close up of cute Lala!
Be sure to check back tomorrow when I'll have my 1st card for the La La Landschallenge!

What a cutie-pie (couldn't resist with an apple theme)! She is adorable and I love that you used her for a gift bag. The colors are so happy and I love the extra touch of the lace edging punch- that's fantastic!
