...next [came] the ten courtiers; these were ornamented all over with diamonds, and walked two and two, as the soldiers did. After these came the royal children; there were ten of them, and the little dears came jumping merrily along hand in hand, in couples: they were all ornamented with hearts. Next came the guests, mostly Kings and Queens...
The theme of this quote is couples, and that's what we celebrate in February with Valentine's Day. For the month of February, we are celebrating Romance in Wonderland! As always, you may enter any project that fits the challenge theme, but those that feature Wonderland will have two chances at the prize instead of one. Multiple entries are encouraged but each must be on a separate post; enter by Feb. 23. One lucky winner will receive a $15 store credit to Simply Betty Stamps.
Today's project for The Altered Alice features the gorgeous Romance Emma. Doesn't she just make the perfect Alice? Alice has just found a love letter in her Wonderland mailbox. I wonder who it's from. A secret admirer?
I love the expression on her face, so touched by the loving words. The man who can truly express his feelings in writing is a rare one. He obviously holds the key to her heart (and mine). I've colored her with Copics in the traditional Alice blue and added a key ring charm. The heart doily behind her is a Cottage Cutz Die.
The mailbox is a $1 one from Target. Alice's name is done with the Cuttlebug Embossing Plus Postage Alphabet.
Simply Betty Stamps started in 2010, when I was forced to close my little scrapbook store due to my last baby coming early. I was home, with a preemie couldn't do much but draw, craft, and had just discovered blogging! I started to nose around about digis, how could I do this, how could I do that? Slowly but surely Simply Betty Stamps was born! I have a quirky sense of humor and I believe it shows in my images. I have immortalized my kids in my images as it is what I love creating with, their everyday shenanigans and goofy ways. I love sharing my creativity, I can't tell you how awesome it is to see others creating with SBS images! I look forward to continuing to bring in the quirkiness to crafters across the globe and look forward to many years of fun images.
The heart border is an MS punch to which I've added tea party charms and pearls. A blue and white gingham bow and trim seemed fitting.
Finally, on the back is the addy. 14 Love Lane, Wonderland. Please visit The Altered Alice to see more Romance in Wonderland projects (a bit later since we all run a bit late in Wonderland) and check out the winner of last month's challenge (up NOW!) The new linky will be up with the Romance post so hurry and get started for a chance to win the $15 voucher and choose some gorgeous Simply Betty Stamps of your own. Remember, Wonderland related projects are not a requirement, but we love to see them and they're counted TWICE!
