Oh, Alice, CURIOSITY is KEY...


" Suddenly Alice came upon a little three-legged table, all made of solid glass; there was nothing on it except a tiny golden key, and Alice's first thought was that it might belong to one of the doors of the hall; but, alas! either the locks were too large, or the key was too small, but at any rate it would not open any of them. However, on the second time round, she came upon a low curtain she had not noticed before, and behind it was a little door about fifteen inches high: she tried the little golden key in the lock, and to her great delight it fitted!"

Hello again!  Welcome back to our Oh, Alice challenge!   This week your curiosity is KEY to this week's challenge.

Rather, the Key IS the challenge!  Yep!  Let's see how YOU open the door to your creativity this week using a KEY as your inspiration.   You can use embellishments, DP, stamps, whatever KEY elements you have to play is fine with us!

We'll be CURIOUSER and CURIOUSER to see how you use them!


I used the really awesome MOJO 137 Sketch for this card and found it to be a bit of a challenge- which is GOOD right?  I really felt excited when the card came out just how I wanted it too-all I did was flip the sketch so that you could still see the name of the sheet music ;)  


LOVE new October Afternoon "Thrift Shop" paper pack and there just so happened to be a sheet music DP that was perfectly titled "The Rabbit".  I think the White Rabbit would be proud, don't you?  ;)   I had a blast w/ a little patchworking, sewing, and found this Key image from my Ippity set, "Music of my Heart".   Be on the lookout for NEW Ippity releases toward the end of this week!  Sentiment is from Unity's "birdie inspiration" set.


There's no time limit to play along with us this week, however, entries are always appreciated by everyone at Oh, Alice and we'd love to stop by your blogs to see your beautiful creations.  Your participation is KEY to all of this and to show you just how much we thank you, we have a fantastic prize next week along with a fun few announcements too!

For now, be sure to stop by the rest of our Twisted Thirteen:

Have a Curious week, everyone!
