Cathy Cafun - Off to Wonderland

Hi Shazza,
Stayed up to finish this LO for FS2S June Challenge. The pic isn't as clear as I'd like. This is a pic of my DD from quite a few years back fast asleep. She looked so angelic (as all kids do when they sleep) that I had to snap this pic. I managed all the criteria. There is a white rabbit who has a fob watch and a drink me bottle in the top left hand corner near the flowers. Thanks Cathy

Woohoo! You just made it Cathy! an hour!! lol Gorgeous layout, your running rabbit is divine!! I can just imagine him saying 'I'm late, I'm late... lol your daughter does look so angelic, your use of your sleeping daughter for the layout was a great idea. You have all your criteria, Well done - Shazza

Here is an entry fom a newbie.......

Lisa Webb - Grow

Hi Shazza
I absolutely loved doing this challenge. Love the idea of my mind going back into my childhood memories of the gorgeous Alice in Wonderland. It made me smile feeling like the childhood in me was coming back out. I must admit I had to Google what a Drink me bottle was.... But as you can see I managed to slip it in next to the clock on the left hand side of my layout. It is actually the pear from the top left hand side of the page cut out into the shape of a bottle with added straw texture for the neck of the bottle.
Thanks so much for letting me have this play.
Lisa Webb aka Moonie

Hi Lisa! With a few little additions like the drink me bottle and white rabbit, you were able to enter FS2S. :) This page is gorgeous and love your drink me bottle, its turned out fab. Thanks for joining in and good luck when we do our voting. A very creative piece!! - Shazza

This is a another gorgeous 'Alice' themed entry from.........

Irit Shalom - Believe in Wonderland

Shazza hello!! Here is my entry for Alice challenge: this one is a mixed media canvas and as you can see I was inspired by wonderland- as mich as my daughters and their friend feel in their own summer wondeland
As for the criteria: huge clock is on the paper left corner, white rabbit and the bottle - near the title on the lower side of the page.
And I really went out of the box on this one- useing lots and lots of techniques here- such as acrylics, wax,stamping, heat and dry embossing, die cutting, using glitters and 3d glue and even stamping with plastic glass.
The best part of it is that the photo is in some kind of a pocket and it is changable- as I can take it of and to put a new one
Hope you like it
Irit Shalom

Gee!! Irit you have really done a lot of work on this canvas with all those looks fabulous. Love how you left a pocket so you can swap over the photo. Love how you incorporated all the criteria, your stamped umbrella looks great here. Beautiful work, well done!!

Thanks for your entry Melissa! It's turned out just beautiful, I love that shabby chic look :)

Hi Shazza,
This is my entry for the June challenge, well you didn't dissappoint with tricky but heaps of fun criteria this month, I have my fob watch in the title, my white rabbits and my "drink me bottle" is actually a close up pic of my favourite perfume, although you cannot drink it, it is my favourite potion. I just love the challenge every month. Love Melxx

A Potion is good Mel!! Love this layout, title is great and I love the font you used for 'wonderland'..... I think I can see a bit of masking technique.... how cute are those white rabbits :) Thanks for joining in and I'm glad you love the monthly challenges - TC Shazza

Hey! Have a look at this entry from...

Deb Clark - My Own Little Wonderland

Morning Shazza,
Thank you for yet another great inspiration in 'Alice in
Wonderland'! I enjoyed scrapping a B & W photo of myself,
when I was a little flower girl for my brother's wedding
....oh so many years ago!! I have played with a clock mask,
as well as a cuttlebugged clock face, wine bottle tucked
away near some flowers & white felt rabbit with a
pink tail I made!! Plus added cuttlebugged butterflies,
& lots of flowers.
Cheers, Deb
Hi Deb, this has turned out beautiful. You make a lovely 'Alice',
in your bridesmaid dress :)
I just love those etched butterflies
and that large organza pink bloom is just beautiful. I love the
idea of using the movie sheet with the song 'Rabbit', clever
idea :) Making a handmade rabbit was a great idea too. Great
take on the challenge, well done! - Shazza
