Park Hopping is hopping across the pond to the UK and Legoland Mythica this month. It is located at the LEGOLAND® Windsor Resort, Winkfield Road, Windsor, Berkshire.

With a bucket of Lego, you can tell any story; you can build an airplane or a dragon or a pirate ship – it’s whatever you can imagine.” – Christopher Miller

Below are two magnificent lego sculptures

This themed park area lets you enjoy the imagination and creativity of myths and Legos. The sculptors’ works are breathtaking!

Mythica’s Beastly Bites will certainly vanquish any appetite. Don’t these mythical treats look delicious?! Do you have a favorite park fare? Can you pick just one??

Beastly Bites

Our designers have been busy; let’s see what they have to spark our imagination!

For our paper crafters, Makira has been influenced by the Kawaii culture this month.

Makira loves paper crafting. This Kawaii card was made using SVG cuts and a Cricut machine. Hello Kitty can be found at Sanrio Puroland in Japan and at Universal Studios, Orlando, FL, USA.

Our final designer piece is a beautiful floral scene.

Eden’s created this card using Lawn Fawn stamps, pan pastels, paint, and pencils. The flowers remind her of Epcot’s Flower and Garden Festival at Disneyworld, FL, USA.

Please remember to click on the person’s name and leave these wonderful girls some comment love.
