When you make a conscious choice to be happy, no one can take it away from you because no one gave it to you: you gave it to yourself.

Celebrating stories


Time for another Crafty Boots challenge and this time the theme was set by the lovely Dionne and she chose -

Children's Stories & Nursery Rhymes

So we want to see your take on these precious pieces of literary history.  Pop over to Crafty Boots Challenge Blog to join in and get some inspiration from the super talented DT.

Ok my project is in the form of a Smash Book layout and is based on Alice in Wonderland.  Back in 2008 I was lucky enough to go to Disneyland Paris with my boy, we had great fun in the Maze which is themed around Alice, so I printed off some pictures and set about creating my pages.

These wonderful characters are digital stamps from Angie Delarie Products - Alice in Cardland range which I coloured using my Copics.  The pages have been embellished with washi tape, ribbon, card candi and bits and bobs I found in my stash.

I could have chosen so many stories, but this helped me to capture some memories and put those pictures onto a page instead of waiting on the computer! 

Take care & enjoy your day.

Ooh! We've been there and done that maze too! Love the Smash pages - lots of great ideas tying the theme together! Clever you!

Good morning Zoe

Fantastic layout, it looks like you had a great time in the maze, I have never been to any of the Disney theme parks and would love to go.

What fantastic images, although I find the button eyes a little spooky! When I was searching for images for this challenge I found that the Alice in Wonderland images seem to be amongst the most common, but I did not come across this set, I wish I had.
