Oh, ALICE!!!!

Ok, if you guys could see me I am literally stomping my feet right now saying that out loud!!!


UGH!  I have had the WORST internet luck this past 24 hours I can't even BEGIN to tell you.     And I probably WILL because really it's comical and involves faulty wiring (that's new construction for ya!), hurt-your-ear-foghorn-alarm noises, the Fire dept...all KINDS of fun stuff!


BUT, I'm LATE!  I'm LATE!  For a VERY important date as TODAY is the first Challenge over at the brand new "OH, ALICE!" Challenge blog!


It's a fun one, and there's a PRIZE, so don't miss it!  YAY!  I can FINALLY post this fun stuff, so here's the scoop:
CHAPTER ONE: DOWN THE RABBIT HOLE: THE BEGINNING...

    "The White Rabbit put on his spectacles. "Where shall I begin, please your Majesty?" he asked.

"Begin at the beginning," the King said gravely, "and go ontill you come to the end: then stop."

ALICE GETS GLAM: INSPIRATION CHALLENGE

In anticipation of the upcoming Tim Burton remake, let's GET GLAM with Alice!  I recently scored this UBER fab makeup palette by Urban Decay (thanks honey!) and fell in love with the awesome colors, the NAMES of the eyeshadows (all after Alice, of course ;) and the pop-up mushroom mirror!  In fact, like  three people showed this to me last week and it was SO funny b/c he had already gotten it for me but then got worried I was going to go buy it and as a thank-you for some extra stuff I've taken on lately, he gave me a lil' present.  LOVE that guy!


Um, can you say this was MADE for me? I actually own every pop-up book of Alice, too...so one that has pretty stuff in it? CURIOSER AND CURIOUSER!!!!!


Here's my card today using the UNITY Jan. Kit of the Month, {Savor the Journey}:


Sorry the pic isn't the best-in addition to all my wireless issues, my laptop is in the shop so I'm using a diff PC  and took this w/ my phone :)

So here's the deal: We wanna see how YOU get Glam using this amazing little piece as your inspiration! Show us your style, put on the glitz, and GET GLAM!

And WHAT would our first Challenge be without a PRIZE?! Now, normally we'll be (hopefully) sponsored on the 1st Sat. of each month, but for today's FIRST Fall Down the Rabbit Hole, we thought we'd give away a little something! ONE LUCKY WINNER will be chosen at Random to WIN a stamp single of their choice from THE GREETING FARM (in stock items only). So, GOOD LUCK and here's how to play:

You have until FRIDAY, February 26, 2010 at 10pm CST to upload your card or project using the above inspiration photo as your muse! Upload to your blog or public gallery (please use keyword OAC1) and LINK your name below using Mr. Linky! We can't WAIT to see your creations and THANK YOU for your support of this CURIOUS new venture!
Don't forget to check out the OH,ALICE! Blog  There are some ABSOLUTELY GLAMTASTIC samples from our Twisted Thirteen and me, and don't forget to stop by Jimmi's blog because she's got some candy, so I hear :) And leave some love for ALL of our girlies because they ROCK:

Have a FABULOUS day in WONDERLAND!  xoxo
Jess :)
