Hallowe'en In Wonderland, Alice's Tea Party

Alice in Wonderland is an age-less story that just about everyone loves.  I know I do. 
I saw the recent release of the  Johnny Depp version.  I loved it.  Graphic 45 jumped on the band wagon with Hallowe'en In Wonderland, Alice's Tea Party line of papers.
I made this altered book for Papertrix, which is the shop in Nashville, IN where I work part-time and do some design work for.



 The "Down the Rabbit-Hole" ephemera shown here was from an ad I found in a magazine.  In her hand, I placed a real key.

 I used some of the words from the Jefferson Airplane song "Go Ask Alice."  I tried to remove most of the drug references since young ladies are often in the shop, looking at the books.  I did my best, but that song is filled with drug references.





I love how Graphic 45 made Tweedle Dee and Tweedle Dumb pumpkin heads!  What kind of Halloween art have you created?  I would love to see it!

Hi Cheryl, This year, since Dave passed away, I really haven't been up to making anything new for the holidays .. maybe pretty soon. Neat stuff, Sandy:O)

Nice job. Although you sure gave yourself a tough job trying to edit out drug references in Go Ask Alice!

I don't create or decorate.

You did an interesting project. For an unknown reason I have never been fond of the Alice in Wonderland thing..

I don't have anything like that. Gee you did a wonderful job on that. And I have to say I loved this Alice with Johnny Depp.

Y'know, I saw this paper online when I pre-ordered Modern Homemaker from October Afternoon.
I just did not have the vision I guess. Your project is fantastic.
Dad burn it, one day, on the weekend, I am going to get down to that shop and meet you woman!
It's on my bucket list!
Your talent is growing and growing.

You have seen mine! I am going to make more pumpkins today. Maybe some coasters for the girls at work...and maybe a tray.


Or I might just take a nap.
