It's the Mad Hatter's Tea Party

Welcome to The Mad Hatter's Tea Party. If you happen to fall in the rabbit's hole you have landed in the wacky wonderful world of Alice where we're all mad here! The March Hare is scurrying and hoping you won't be late in attending and wishing our hostess a Happy Birthday!!! She does love celebrating  her birthday and what better way than to have a tea party with all of her favorite friends in this Wonderland!!!!

Now, sit back with your cup of tea, relax and enjoy this wonderful line-up:
There are some wonderful sponsors today to help us celebrate:

Rick St. Dennis has some fabulous digi's and he is offering three of these to one lucky winner. You can fine him at http://rickstdennis.blogspot.nl/
and he asks that you become a follower. 

The Stamping Chef at http://thestampingchef.oo.gd/index.php?route=common/home is offering 3 digis to help you cook up something special to one lucky winner

Treasure Box Designs at http://www.treasureboxdesigns.com/, is offering $15 in free files to one lucky winner by going to the Design Team Blog Page (http://treasureboxdesignteam.blogspot.com/) and following along with following on the FaceBook Fan Page (https://www.facebook.com/pages/TreasureBoxDesigns/169444103106015)

Here's my project which I hope you enjoy as I have made a journal using a notebook from The Dollar Tree where some pages are glued together to make pockets. Journal tags were added to the various characters as I didn't attach them all the way to include the tags. 

My cover of my book is "the looking glass" which is from Disney Happily Ever After Cricut Cartridge which is blinged up with gems and the shadow is prism paper to give the illusion of a "looking glass"

First page has "through the looking glass" which I created the lettering with Make the Cut, welded them together and then added a shadow. Paper is Recollections.

I love the Mad Hatter and he is the first character in my journal. He is part of the Treasure Box Designs Wonderland Collection. Instead of being part of a photo mat, I put him in the sugar bowl that the Door Mouse is included in this file. I found all of these wonderful quotes were found at Alice in Wonderland Memorable Quotes and Lenny's Alice in Wonderland Site. The wonderful paper is from DCWV The Heirloom Stack and the paper the Mad Hatter is on is Paper Adventures Paper Heart Dazzle Circles.

Of course, Alice Kingsley is our next page along with the bottle, "Drink Me" which was cut using Cricut Disney Classics Cartridge. Alice's quote that she uses a lot is "Curiouser and Curiouser" which of course, I had to use!!! Background paper is Paper Adventures Paper Heart Dazzle Circles. Paper piecings paper is Recollections.

The Queen of Heart is next to pay a visit with her famous quote, "Off with their heads!" along with a favorite of mine where the queen is asking for a pig for her aching feet. The pig is Treasure Box Designs Hogs and Kisses. The Queen is blinged blinged with jewels from Miriam's Crafting Supplies which has super great selection and super pricing! My background paper is hearts which I got in Target's Dollar bins.

Next are the cards with the background paper with the cards from DCWV The Heirloom Stack and then cutting some of the cards individually, spanning them around my quotes. 

The final page that I completed for today is the Cheshire Cat. My cat is on the sign post which I cut from Cricut Disney Classics. The background paper again, is Paper Adventures Paper Heart Dazzle Circles. I will be doing more pages at a later date and of course will share with you. 

Of course, there are more characters that are in my thought process that I want to work on and will be adding at a later date AND of course,  I will be sharing with you. I also want to put my cards from my friends last year and this year Mad Hatter will be put in my journal to keep!!! "Off with their heads!!! but not my friends!

Thank you for stopping and enjoying a cup of tea and perhaps crumpets with me! Your next stop along the party hop is Camille and I'm sure you will enjoy your tea as she is very talented or just follow the March Hare and don't be late for a very important date as I'm turning 61!
