La-la Land Retreat Project Hat and Trinket Box

The La-la Land Palooza Retreat was the BEST retreat ever!!!!! I've never had so much fun, EVER!!!! Irina and some members of her Design Team who attended did a "over the top" job on creating such unique projects as well as make and takes for all of us.  We received such wonderful gifts in our Goodie bags: a Custom made T-shirt (Irina and her Team are so talented - yup, she screened them herself), out own fluffy aprons, our La-la Land mugs, a mini Score-pal, Paper Tole tool and shaping pad along with two 6x6 paper packs. I am spinning with delight from this retreat. So let's get started to reveal some of the projects we made:

This was the very first project designed by Irina: it is a mini Steampunk Hat.  We all had the opportunity to assemble and freely decorate the hat with some available trims. This is what I created. The hat is sitting on a mini bottle of wine. Some of the  La-la Land dies used are Birdcage, Leaf, and Butterfly which can be found here. The Butterfly is outlined using a Sakura Crystal pen.
You can also see some metal mini Gears along with die cut Hearts randomly scattered on the side of the hat. I also randomly sprayed some gold Smooch on the hat.
Quill rolled roses ( a La-la Land die) in black are found on top of the decorative ribbon. The red ribbon was made using Copic R27 - it was originally a cream color seam binding ribbon.
The finished size of this hat is 6" x 3". We had a contest for the best hat - boo hoo, I didn't win but the winner def deserved the recognition - their hat was ever so super!!!!
A make and take project: Trinket box found here. This box is sooooo easy to assemble  - it is quite sturdy.  Gold Shimmer  paper used outside and inside. Finished size is 4" x 4". Leaf and Gear dies are from La-la land. Stamped image is called Top Hat Steampunk Marci found here.
Love the effect of the Viva Gold Pearl Pen randomly "dropped" on to the front cover.

OK - more projects from Day 1 coming in the next stay tuned and join me for the is quite a fun one.................
