Sooo much time........

has been spent on this project!!.I have wanted to make a scrapbook page of Alice for quite a while, but other commitments have prevented me making a start...until Sunday. I had so many ideas in my mind, but when I tried to put them on paper they just wouldn't work... I'm sure you know what I mean don't you.

I wanted to use Stampin' Up! items to make my own embellishments and here are a few. I have used two different stamp sets doing these, but I loved them. The problem I had was getting them on my page..

I also wanted to use an A on my page, so decided to draw around a chipboard letter that I had laying around (not SU) and then stamp on it. I also sponged around the edges to make it pop off the page.

Colours used are Pretty in Pink & Whisper White, with a splash of Barely Banana, Sage Shadow and Apricot Appeal.

Stamp sets: In the Star, Nursery Necessities. Canvas BG
Ink: Pretty in Pink, Barely banana, Apricot Appeal, Sage Shadow
Card: Whisper White, Pretty in Pink
Ribbon: Light Pink Gingham, 1/2" Pretty in Pink Striped Grosgrain
Accessories: Scallop Circle punch, Scallop Edge punch, Large Star Punch, 3/4" Circle Punch, Crafters Tool Kit.
