CHAPTER 30: Hey there, Nice Stems... (Post 1 of 2)

Just as Alice said this, she noticed that one of the trees had a door leading right into it. `That's very curious!' she thought. `But everything's curious today. I think I may as well go in at once.' And in she went.

Once more she found herself in the long hall, and close to the little glass table. `Now, I'll manage better this time,' she said to herself, and began by taking the little golden key, and unlocking the door that led into the garden.

Then she went to work nibbling at the mushroom (she had kept a piece of it in her pocked) till she was about a foot high: then she walked down the little passage: and THEN--she found herself at last in the beautiful garden, among the bright flower-beds and the cool fountains..."

Hello out there! It's a lovely day here in Wonderland and we are celebrating the summer with a nature theme today! Well, TREES and FLOWERS and BIRDS to be more exact! (NOTE: And apparently I can’t even read the original challenge because all I saw was that it was a sketch challenge, I know bless my heart).  We scored a GREAT sketch sponsored by PAGEMAPS today that is just perfect for today's theme:
See I just wanted to make up for the fact that I had messed up last week and had neglected my poor Sparkle Creations stamp.  Well, I did give it the attention it deserved this week and even managed to use the sketch.  Just not the elements…ay yiyi.

RockinOutWell if you would like to see the design team creations that actually did the challenge correctly, you can stop in by the Oh! Alice Challenge blog for a full run down.  MWAH!!  And have a great weekend.

Stamps: Sparkle Creations – Turntable Josh
Paper: Prima Youth Collection, PTI Soft Stone, Neenah CS
Ink: Memento Tuxedo Black, DI Distressed Wood
