LLWWC6 - Paper Pieced "Trick or Treat" Lala

It's time again for another La-La's Weekly Wednesday Challenge!

Before I go on to this week's challenge, I just wanted to thank everyone who participated in last week's challenge. Congratulations to our four winners (second was a tie!) - Victoria of Blue Jelly Too, Carolyn of Handmade Treasures by Creative Card Corner, Alexandra of Scrapbookende Zwergnase, and April Rose of April's Roses! It seems to be getting harder every week to decide on the Top 3! Such awesome talent out there! I can not wait to see what this week's challenge brings on!

Sheila is our host this week and she has chosen paper piecing as the challenge!

My goodness Jane, you are incredible! WOW! I love your work (I often go to Memories Live On) and saw your work on their website (via KT's blog mentioning the store) and then came to your blog which got ME started blogging! I cannot get over your designs. I've been on an incredible journey ever since - I'm a huge fan of LaLa Land Crafts! You guys are amazing. Thank you so much for taking the time to show how you did the paper piecing. I had no idea how I was going to enter this challenge. It's still a little daunting but we'll see. Thanks again!! Fabulous blog by the way!
