Oh, Alice has a CURIOUS announcement!...

CHAPTER 14: Gettin' Sketchy in the Golden Afternoon...

"Little bread-and-butterflies kiss the tulips,
and the sun is like a toy balloon.
There are get up in the morning glories,
in the golden afternoon.
There are dizzy daffodils on the hillside,
strings of violets are all in tune,
Tiger lilies love the dandy lions,
in the golden afternoon,
the golden afternoon.
There are dog and caterpillars and a copper centipede,
where the lazy daisies love the very peaceful life they lead... "

Hey everyone!

We have a wonderful Sketch for you today designed by our own Jen Shults!   Here's her awesome design:

Our sketch comes w/ just a small twist this week....

Ok, its HUGE!

ONE PLAYER will be chosen this week based on all of the entries (and we know it's going to be TOUGH!!!) to be our JUNE GUEST TEA PARTY MEMBER for Oh, Alice!   That's right!   The DT will be feverishly going through your creations to choose next month's Guest DT, so if you've been wanting to come and be our Guest at our totally TWISTED Tea Party, now is your chance!

Need some inspiration to get ya going?  Check out the samples from our TOTALLY TWISTED Tea Party at the OH, ALICE blog!  Here's my card, using some fun Webster's Pages items, a TON of Tattered Angel's Glimmer Mist,  and I had to try out my new ChipArt tools by Melody Ross!

We will leave this contest open until THURSDAY May 26th at 11:59 PM CST (please notice the earlier time limit this week just so we can have time to go over entries, contact the winner, and announce them by our next Challenge on the 28th!) to enter your creation.    A preliminary note to all-since we know this is going to be a VERY hard decision, please do not be discouraged if your creation isn't chosen as we have plenty of opportunities coming up each month and have tons of fun up our sleeves!  We are so thrilled that the blog is going strong and cant wait to see what's next for Oh, Alice!

Please don't forget to use keyword OAC14 if you use a public gallery, thanks!

GOOD LUCK everyone!

On another note,  HAPPY BIRTHDAY, Dad.  I love you.  You are the greatest father, friend, grandfather, and the kindest and most easy-going soul I have ever known.   I love you and can't wait til you get back from your trip so I can tell you in person.   xoxo
