A star for my mom

I had to play along with a couple challenges this weekend..
Alice In Wonderland is my all time favorite ever... see tattoo posts on my other blog ;)

I have an old Alice in Wonderland book I picked up at the local bookstore.. so I can use the pages in my crafting..

I made some paper flowers with a couple of the pages.. added my mama (this pic was her last birthday) to one along with some mesh to make it pop
I added some lace and flowers to the other..
this was a little "stacking star box" that I've had sitting on my shelf for a couple years.. I have two more I am ready to alter now :)

text as nonsense challenge

I used a couple Graphic 45 papers to enter their challenge also. It all just seemed to go together for me..
I used the domestic goddess and a proper gentleman papers.. I absolutely adore my Graphic 45 papers. It is so hard for me to cut them up.. I have a stash..
But I took a deep breath and cut into em.. and now, I can't wait to dig in for more!!

I covered the top, inside, and bottom of the star and then added to the big flower with the Graphic 45 papers..
they are having a vote on Facebook.. so make sure you vote for me!
I'll add a link when it's up..

Thanks for playing along with The Altered Alice! Neat that you used an Alice book for your book print pages! The star box makes a neat shadowbox frame for your mom!
