"Oh Alice" Challenges - Chapter One


With a newly formed DT of 13 Twisted crafter's over at "Oh Alice Challenges" I couldn't believe it when 3 of the gals proved to be close blog buddies of mine - maybe we're friends because I'm a little twisted at times too - LOL. Of course I HAD to support the girls and what a fun idea for a challenge site too!!!! Check out this amazing inspiration piece - forget the challenge I want one of THOSE!!!

I was really lucky to have spent the day crafting with DT member Kristy last Saturday and was able to raid her stash of rubber to stamp off some wonderful images to play with. After I got home and checked out the Oh Alice Challenge I was going through the images I had stamped off and thought this cute little gal would make a perfect Alice - she had a dress with a belt, and a band in her hair - and in the right colours she could soooo BE Alice.

This cutie is a Gurlee Girl stamp and was designed by my fellow MDUC DT member Chelsea - and she has her for sale at her store - HERE. The toadstool is a fabulous digital image I found over at Stretch N' Bubbles Blog. You can't tell in the picture but the white panel has been embossed with my Forest Branches Cuttlebug folder for some added texture.

The DP is from the Basic Grey Archaic paper pad that I picked up from Kristy - I got to check out and buy some of the fabulous items she'll be stocking when her online store opens so it was a FABULOUS day all round for me - crafting AND shopping!!!

I was really happy with the images I chose but took some time to work out how they'd fit together - I think it worked OK in the end - but I do have a side step card all cut out to use in the future though - LOL. A little bit of Dazzling Diamonds have added the "glam" factor.
