If you have just hopped onto my blog, you can start here as this is a circular hop, but if you want to follow us across Canada then please start at the beginning and join Julie in Newfoundland. If you came from Deanne's blog then you are in the right place! 

For my project I decided I was going to make a set of 5 greeting cards.  I choose to use the Laughing Lola PML kit. There are currently 13 collections to choose from, and I'm sure one will kit your style.
Luckily for me, I still had some scraps of Laughing Lola paper left and was able to quickly pull these cards together.  I used some Shimmer Trim, Aqua Dots and some Sparkle Gems to dress the cards up. I did not use any stamping. Here are my creations.

This first one I cut 2 little flags and popped them in behind the 4x3 PML card, and added 3 small Sparkle Gems.

For the second card I used the zip strip to seperate the 2 patterns, and then from a second Zip Strip, cut the saying and flagged the end and layered it over the PML card.

The third card is just layers, with some Sparkle Gems at the bottom in 3 different sizes.

This fourth card was made with a 4x3 card that I trimmed down to a square.  I used some Shimmer Trim and Aqua Dots to dress it up.

My last card, I just adhered the PML card to some pattern paper and added two banners from some Shimmer Trim.

Your next stop on the Cross Canada Hop is Nicky.
