A follow up post to my Mad Tea Party

I just wanted to share what I gave to my little guest who played Alice at my recent Mad Tea Party. Her fourth birthday was a few weeks ago and I was invited to the celebration.

Is that adorable, or what? I recently participated in Debrina Pratt’s first online workshop, and made a similar tin. Rather than using Debrina’s image, I substituted my own. I just think it’s the cutest project ever.

I also made the little Alice a photo book in memory of the occasion:

Because the Mad Tea Party was held in my backyard…and my “flower garden” is there, I’m going to link to the Altered Alice challenge for the month of September:

Week 1, CHAPTER 19: Lovely Garden and Bright Flowers

                                                        Posted by Lynne Phelps

“…she tried the little golden key in the lock, and to her great delight it fitted! Alice opened the door and found that it led into a small passage, not much larger than a rat-hole: she knelt down and looked along the passage into the loveliest garden you ever saw. How she longed to get out of that dark hall, and wander about among those beds of bright flowers and those cool fountains, but she could not even get her head though the doorway; `and even if my head would go through,’ thought poor Alice, `it would be of very little use without my shoulders.”— Chapter 1, Alice’s Adventures in Wonderland

Your challenge this month is Garden and/or Flowers! Enter your creations by Friday, September 28, 2012. Multiple entries are allowed, but to count as a separate entry each must be on its own blog post. All entries are welcome, but projects that feature Wonderland will have two chances at the drawing instead of one.

The winner will receive 3 digi images from The Stamping Boutique, which has a wonderful Alice in Wonderland line we will be sharing with you! Tracey Malnoski is the owner and illustrator, and she has previously designed stamps for Unity, InStyle, Squigglefly, and The Digi Shack. Her Stamping Boutique has it all: digital images, red rubber stamps, and themes that include fairytale, whimsy, sentimental, and candy. Please visit the Storeand their wonderful Challenge Blog!

Do come and play! As always, I thank you for stopping by, and until the next time…..Peace.
