Wonderland Challenge.....

Well I am a bit last minute this week but here is my project for lets get Shabby blog Challenge # 9. the chalenge was to create a garden within your project using at least 5 different flowers and include a quote from Alice in Wonderland. My quote is " Come we shall have some fun now" from the te party scene and I used it on page 2 of my minibook. Here is the front cover. I cut layered windows on each page so as you open ten you get a little bit more of a glimpse of the final page. My garden theme runs throughout the book using many different flowers and comninations. the book is actually a discount 50 cent Chipboard book I found at Michaels while back in the states on holiday. On the cover I used Cosmo Cricket Fleuriste papers(I used them throughout the book, A miniature fence fount at my local miniature store, Prima roses, Tim Holtz metal frame,Butterfly stamp from tim holtz(used to make the butterfly) and ribbons and Lace from my stash. the pics I used throughout the book were taken ofBelle and Her good friend Belle Belle when we were in Disney.
the next 2 pages start the story. The first page is where I used the quote from Alice at the Tea party "Come we shall have some fun now" On these pages I used Buttlefly stickers from unknown, Prima roses, Basic Grey bling and Lace from my stash.
These pages have Prima flowers, Lace from my stash, Basic Grey brads and pearl brads, and trim from my stash.
These 2 pages use some ribbon andstickers unknown from my stash.
The first page here is using some metal rosettes I bought from a local Scrapbook Store. the last page has various sticker butterflies, more miniature fencing, 5 different rose styles and various die cut flowers beneath the fencing, there are roses, lilies, daffodils, and more. A white sheer ribbon ties across the page through to the back beneath the fencing but over the picture. Have a great weekend and again thanks for all the wonderful comments. Angela
