Alice in Wonderland release day....eeeeeck!!

I am sooooo excited...I have been dying to see this film since I first found out it was to be released and having seen the trailor I wanted it to be released even sooner...but no...we have had to endure weeks of waiting!!

Finally today is the big day, and in honour of this I have made another Alice in Wonderland themed layout....this was my other idea for Lets get Shabby and then I got carried away with the Queen of Hearts theme and forgot all about Alice and the garden...see what I mean about reading the rules carefully!!

It was when Georgia pointed out that this photo would make a good Alice that it all began to fit together. I already knew that I wanted to use blue and green Prima flowers and use the tea party stickers. I can't remember where they came from I have had them for so long....possibly my mum? Anyway they are perfect!!

You can find my step by step tutorial at Bubbly Scrumptious (here) for the 12x12 doiley punch base paper design.

I love blue and white china my grandmother had plate racks around the breakfast room and in the hallway in her house and it was full of beautiful old blue and white Spode always reminds me of her:)

It was such a beautifully sunny day today that I took my other layout outside and re-photographed it. I wasn't happy with the one I took last week in the dull rain!!

Love and good vs evil and little white rabbits

These are gorgeous layouts, Ruth! Beautifully done! I'm so excited for the film, too--I first saw the posters when I saw "Harry Potter" this summer, and I've been waiting anxiously since then! Today's the day!!!

Hope you're enjoying the improved weather--soak it up!

Hiya Ruth
oh my they are both so stunning and love the film clips and also want to so desperately watch it (just like the leading man myself) no not really but he is cute but not as cute as your own little Alice

I think you have a fully qualified model there - what a difference in the mood of the two layouts and brilliant interpretation of both.
