Alice Gets Glammed!

CHAPTER ONE: DOWN THE RABBIT HOLE: THE BEGINNING...



The White Rabbit put on his spectacles. "Where shall I begin, please your Majesty?" he asked.

"Begin at the beginning," the King said gravely, "and go on till you come to the end: then stop."


ALICE GETS GLAM: INSPIRATION CHALLENGE


In anticipation of the upcoming Tim Burton remake, let's GET GLAM with Alice! Jessica recently scored this UBER fab makeup palette by Urban Decay and fell in love with the awesome colors, the NAMES of the eyeshadows (all after Alice, of course ;) and the pop-up mushroom mirror!


We wanna see how YOU get Glam using this amazing little piece as your inspiration! Show us your style, put on the glitz, and GET GLAM!

And WHAT would our first Challenge be without a PRIZE?! Now, normally we'll be (hopefully) sponsored on the 1st Sat. of each month, but for today's FIRST Fall Down the Rabbit Hole, we thought we'd give away a little something! ONE LUCKY WINNER will be chosen at Random to WIN a stamp single of their choice from THE GREETING FARM (in stock items only). So, GOOD LUCK and here's how to play:

You have until FRIDAY, February 26, 2010 at 10pm CST to upload your card or project using the above inspiration photo as your muse! Upload to your blog or public gallery (please use keyword OAC1, using the letter 'O', not the number) and LINK your name Mr. Linky on the Oh Alice blog! We can't WAIT to see your creations and THANK YOU for your support of this CURIOUS new venture!

I used the polished stone technique to create the metallic/marble background, and paper pieced Ms. Alice sitting on her toadstool. Stickles add some bling to the glamorous setting along with the rhinestones, rich gold embossing and fabulous May Arts fabric ribbon fit for the queen {OFF WITH HER HEAD!}. I hung a charm and a marble polished stone from a charm pin for a little more interest.

On a side note, I have brand new ippity stamps for sale, and 5 new ribbons from May Arts!

I cannot WAIT to see what you find down the rabbit hole! Be sure to head back to Oh Alice's blog and check out the other projects we've created just for you!

Cool runnings ~ peace be the journey. Ta for now ~ky
