The Alertered Alice Week Three, Chapter 15 Any Way You Go Will Get You Somewhere

`Would you tell me, please, which way I ought to go from here?'
`That depends a good deal on where you want to get to,' said the Cat.
`I don't much care where--' said Alice.
`Then it doesn't matter which way you go,' said the Cat.
`--so long as I get SOMEWHERE,' Alice added as an explanation.
`Oh, you're sure to do that,' said the Cat, `if you only walk long enough.'

-- Chapter 6, Alice's Adventures in Wonderland

Ok, I don't know what's going on here.  I'm having a heck of a time with this new blogger so now my text is aligned differently and in BOLD but I can't figure out how to change it despite numerous attempts (and mostly I don't get the whole "HTML" thing) so I'm gonna have to go with it or this post will never get published.  I've also noticed that all the linking I've done from here down doesn't seem to show up but possibly will link if you run your cursor over the products.  I give up! 

My project includes 3 of the Alice in Wonderland Paper Dolls, now available in digital download form at Alpha Stamps.  Here is Alice & Flamingo and The Duchess on the croquet court (bird cage from M's).
I've died a tinsel pompom for the hedgie ball and used small cut outs for the Queen of Hearts Collage sheet #3 to make the wicket.
These paper dolls were included in women's magazines during WWI.  By printing out each character a number of times, and fussy cutting portions of the images, I was able to add multiple layers and give them much more dimension.
The Queen of Hearts is about to enter the field, but she's noticed that one of the roses lining the gate is white and she's VERY upset.
I've assembled her too, using multiple layers and lined her cape with retired card suit DP from Stampin' Up.
Keeping track of time is so important in Wonderland.  This "Play time" Pocket watch has Game Spinner hands and the face was cut from  one of the scenes included with The Dutchess Paper Doll Collage Sheet
The watch fob has a Tim Holtz Crown charm and  a 1x3" Memory frame in which I've stamped one of the flamingos from the Alice's Adventures rubber stamp set.  The frame has a Memory capsule front so I was able to include a piece of turf and another tiny hedgie ball.  The text is cut from the story page where the Cheshire Cat appears to Alice during the game.  He is also from the rubber stamp set and Goliath insisted I color him to look like him because his smile looks just like the Cheshire's.  So don't be late!  You have until may 25th (EDT) to enter this fabulous challenge for a chance to win this wonderful Alice's Adventures stamp set, and don't forget ALL participants will receive the new white Rabbit Digital collage Sheet pictured above.  And don't miss out on the fabulous sale of ALL Alice in Wonderland themed products still going on through May 26th at Alpha Stamps.
