WOYWW and some CHA finds.

I can not believe its been only a week since I have been back from CHA! So much has happened. I came back and had to organise a huge prize giving function at school (the old leaders were handing over their reigns to the new ones!) and my grandchildren (3 of them) are being Christened next Sunday, so invitations needed to be made and of course, I was itching to get my hands on all the new toys I got at CHA.
That is the reason for the mess on my desk this morning. I was hoping that it would look better if I took an artistic photo with sunbeams reflecting, but it still looks terrible LOL.It was so bad that I had to flee my craftroom last night and work on the couch!



Now the couch and the TV room looks just as bad as my craftroom! I think its time for a clean up, don't you?



One of my favourite finds from CHA was La La Land stamps. They are just too gorgeous! I bought a whole lot of them, because I could not actually find any that I did not like! For my South African friends - she has some Summer Christmas stamps!!! They were not quite ready at CHA, but I have ordered some if anybody is interested!



The first one uses some Prima and other flowers from my stash and some lace from Wild Orchid Crafts. Of course they were all coloured with my beloved Copics.



Here is a close up, hoping you can see how I glitterified her shoes and jewelery.



They have some awesome boy images. Don't know about you, but I always seem to battle with the boy cards. These images are so cute, this card just came together. The bread tag with the sentiment on is another new CHA find. The die cut is from My favorite Things.



Last, but certainly not the last LA La Stamp you will see from me is this gorgeous Cupcake Supergirl! Just love her! The sentiment is from My favorite Things. All other dies are Nestabilities and all cardstock is Bazzil and the dp all came from my scrapbox.



I am going shopping for paper - not for me, I have to make wedding invitations for a friend's son!



While I am gone go and snoop at all the other talented ladies' desks over at Queen Julia (http://stamping-ground.blogspot.com/)



Have a great week everybody, its school holidays so I hope to post more than once a week.

  9. You're right - it IS harder doing stuff for boys. So, well done on finding a really funky cars/vehicle motif paper, it's perfect for the younger males (and possibly one or two older ones as well :D) xx

  16. Wow how do you find time to create these fun and beautiful cards. The stamps are new to me ...I wonder when they will be around over here.

  17. OMGosh, you made me laugh out loud when you talked about taking an artistic shot with the sunbeams. . .that is hilarious! Your cards however are wonderful. I love that first one and though I tend not to care to much for "people character" images, this one is really great. And of course your coloring is fabulous! 10 to 1 when you went shopping for paper (for someone else) you bought some for you! We just can't help ourselves! Hope you are well. . .Best, Curt

  23. Must have missed your last post for some reason - I too once got stranded in Chicago after CHA in Vegas. Long story and not an adventure I would like to repeat.
    Great cards - you have been busy. Thanks for sharing your desk with us this week. Hugs, Neet #7

  36. Thanks for stopping over at my desk. I agree...traveling is much more important than the scrapbooking. That's why I'm behind. :-)

  37. I'm sure you'll find time to sort out your craft desk once the Christening over. Four of my grandchildren were all Christened on the same day and they were all wonderful - a day to remember. Your cards are beautiful too. Elizabeth x #60
