Alice in Wonderland


I hope you have all had a good weekend. We had puring rain Saturday afternoon, on and off all day yesterday and today has been gloomy. About 5pm the sun finally decided to shine, just in time for people going back to work tomorrow after the Bank Holiday, typical! I had hoped to be back at work tomorrow but after feeling quite a bit better Thursday and Friday I have felt awful for the last 3 days and will be back to the doctor's tomorrow. This is the first bit of crafting I have done since Friday and I have spent very little time on the computer.

When I first saw these fab digi images from Spesch I knew they would be perfect for a scrapbook page with this photo of Graham meeting Alice in MGM Studios (now Hollywood Studios) in Orlando. Before I got round to buying them I was lucky enough to win 3 Spech images recently and so I chose Alice and the Queen of Hearts as 2 of my choices. I decided to convert the photo to black and white as a contrast to all the colour on the page.

I was lucky to find this paper with mushrooms in amongst some K&Co papers. I wanted to use lots of different flowers to give a real wonderland feeling. I also added some punched hearts with faux stitching to match the faux stitching around the queen's image.

Challenges:
Everybody Art Fairytale
Secret Crafter Buttons and blossoms
One Stitch at a Time Something New (digis)
The Shabby Tea Rooms Dear to my Heart
Passion for Promarkers Anything Goes
