 CHAPTER 11:  Little People...Big Wonderland

"Tweedledum and Tweedledee
Agreed to have a battle;
For Tweedledum said Tweedledee
Had spoiled his nice new rattle.

Just then flew down a monstrous crow,
As black as a tar-barrel;
Which frightened both the heroes so,
They quite forgot their quarrel."

Hello and welcome back!  This week, we are SUPER excited to tell you that we are being sponsored by the fabulous BUGABOO Stamps!  The owner, Jodie, is just as sweet as can be, and when she offered to sponsor Oh, Alice! we were thrilled!

Since we are talking about those two curious little Tweedles, Dee and Dum, today, let's get right down to your mission this week, should you choose to accept it!   CREATE a card, layout, or project for a CHILD. This can mean using children's images, making a layout of a child, creating a kid's birthday card or room decor, you name it!  The possibilities are endless!

The PRIZE this week is a GREAT one, too, thanks to BUGABOO!  ONE lucky winner will receive 7 digi images of their choice!  That's a prize worth more than $21.00!  Thanks so much to Jodie and the Bugaboo Crew!

You have until Friday, May 7th at 8pm CST to link your creation to Mr. Linky on the Oh, Alice! blog, and the winner will be announced next Saturday!  Please use keyword OAC11 when linking to a public gallery, thanks and have a great week!

A note about my card: As I've mentioned in previous posts, I'm running behind this week... chasing my tail, as my friend Debbie would say. So I planned to make my Oh, Alice! challenge card last night while at a "crop" with Betty Boo, our friend Alicia, and Betty's daughter Rio and her friend London. I was even running behind getting there on time, so was packing up in a hurry. I figured it would be okay... if I forgot anything, I could borrow from Betty or Alicia (ha!).

So I get there and Betty asks me what I'm making for my Oh, Alice! challenge card. At which time I realized I have no Bugaboo images with me!!! So I ask Betty if she has any extras. She only has the one she's working on for the challenge. I couldn't believe it! My back-up plan was failing! Just then, Betty's daughter Rio showed me she had some Bugaboo images... all colored up. So I talked her out of one of them... the one you see on my card. 

I then had to shop for the right paper and embellishments, and finally came up with this, which I think is kinda funny juxtaposed with Skelekinz My Heart. I fussy cut a scene out of the paper, slightly changed the coloring Rio had already done of the image, adding glimmer with atYou Spica pens, and then found these funky flowers called Flora Doodles by Petaloo to tie all the colors together. 

Sometimes it takes a village to make a card! Thanks Rio! And thanks Betty and Alicia for loaning me things I needed to make my card. I had a blast!!! You girls are sooooo fun to be with!!!

Please stop back by at 11:00 am Pacific for the new release Blog Waltz for Waltzingmouse Stamps. It's a huge first birthday celebration that you won't want to miss!!!
