Quirky Crafts 2011: Challenge 5 - Alice in Wonderland

Hi everyone, it is challenge time again, and thanks for all the amazing and wonderful entries we had for the last challenge! It was difficult to choose an overall winner, you are all worthy!

The challenge this time is called Alice in Wonderland. You may have read the book by Lewis Carroll, or seen a film version, but if not you can use Google to find out a little about it. What we want you to do is base your entry on something found in the story, for example the white rabbit, the mad hatter's tea party, the Queen of Hearts, the playing card courtiers, you can find rabbit images, playing cards, a stop watch, drink me, eat me type things to use on your project. Any craft project can be entered into the challenge.
We are really looking forward to seeing what you all do with this theme, so please add your link and photo to this post using the blue Inlinkz frog below.

Inlinkz is a great tool for displaying your entries, I am sure you agree, and easy to use. Unlike other tools the entries continue to be displayed on the post after the closing date, and you can enable public voting.
If you would like an Inlinkz account for your blog (and it works in different types of blog) please use the button in the left hand side bar to go and register. Registering this way will help the Quirky Team to keep using Inlinkz for all of you to use on this blog.

We have another great sponsor this time and they are The Stamping Boutique and here is some information on our sponsor:
Tracey Malnofski's resume reads like a whose who of the Stamping Industry. Besides being the owner and a designer for The Stamping Boutique, she's also a stamp artist for Unity Stamp Company and has also worked for InStyleStamps, Squigglefly, and The Digi Shack. Her "Boutique" has it all - fairytale, whimsy, sentimental . . . and Candy! I do not envy the winner who has to choose digi stamps from all those delicious choices. Yep! A winner will be randomly selected to win 5 digital stamps of their choice from Tracey's Boutique!

Here's what Tracey says about her Stamping Boutique.
"The Stamping Boutique" is dedicated to quality products and original artwork. We not only provide wonderful digital images in our store, but also several lines of red rubber
images. Our designers are chosen for their character and personality, as well as, their beautiful designs. We work hard to give you our very best. Thank you so much for having us as your sponsor this week.
