Love Me Some Laughing Lola!

It's true! I am Lovin' me some Laughing Lola....This paper is so "Me"! I Love bright colors and I LOVE pairing them with Black, I think it makes them stand out all the more! 

As You already know I have just recently finished the biggest artistic undertaking I've ever done! It was a Blast, a tiresome, wonderfully challanging blast and I'm finally done....of all the projects I created THIS one is my very favorite! HANDS DOWN! :) 

Here is my Lola French Fry Box! I'm not really sure where she came from, it was not cased or inspired by anyone (maybe THAT'S why I Love her so much....she is a 'Sus Original') 



I used my trusty Cricut Art Philosophy Cartridge for the 'heavy lifting'...it doesn't  matter how many wonderful cartridges Close to My Heart introduces I will ALWAYS have a need for my lovable Art Philosophy! He doesn't leave my machine! I have more than one Cricut machine and you will always find him safely housed inside one of them! :) 

I wanted my box pretty good sized so I hit my 'fit to page' button and cut it as large as was possible.  The Slate Satin Ribbon still ranks near the top of my FAV EMBELLISHMENT list and I think it added 'just enough' to my project! 



It also worked great for my bag ribbon....Can you tell there is a small package of Close to my Heart Jewels inside the box? I also trimmed 1/8" strips of my scrap cardstock and crumpled them up for a delightful confetti filing! 

My baggie topper also housed a couple Art Philosophy Flowers as well as a piece from the Laughing Lola Assortment Collection (LOVE!).  


Now, one of my FAVORITE things on the entire project is this DARLING little 'Happy Birthday' Stamp set! 


Girls! These little beauties are only $2.95! WHAAAT!? Yes! $2.95 each! We have (8) of the adorable little stamp sets now and I have every one of them! Did you miss them when you were browsing the New Autumn/Winter Idea Book? Turn to page 113 to have a look now! :) 


So, of course you already know I love the price tag too! Can we say THRIFTY? :) You will see many of these images pop up in my artwork over the next few months!
