CHAPTER 40: Hoo-ka Are You?

CHAPTER 40: Hooka Are You?
"Who are YOU?" said the Caterpillar.
This was not an encouraging opening for a conversation. Alice replied, rather shyly, "I--I hardly know, sir, just at present-- at least I know who I WAS when I got up this morning, but I think I must have been changed several times since then."
~Alice's Adventures in Wonderland,Chapter 5
Hi everyone!  THANK YOU for all the well wishes for Ava's bday yesterday!  She had a GREAT DAY-and LOVED reading your comments.  All in all it was a fantastic day and our little "Caterpillar" had a WONDERFUL day!  Thanks again!

So, welcome to the mad world of Wonderland! Once again we are here to inspire you to create great things! The Caterpillar (Absalom) was the wisest creature in Wonderland. At least he thought so, and so did most of the others. 
He is a fascinating character because of his wisdom, and his lack of understanding metamorphosis. Kind of a weird oxymoron, don't you think? Our challenge this week is to use either a caterpillar or a butterfly in your project. If you'd like to go one step farther, use a definition or dictionary paper in your design (any subject is fine).

If you are fortunate, you may find yourself wisely winning your choice of three 4x6 reprints from our sponsor, Maigan Lynn Beaudoin Shaw. FanTASTic!! Maigan is such a delightful artist, and the team appreciates the chance to work with one of her images!   Heres what I came up with using this week's Taylored Expressions Sketch Challenge:


Remember, you have all week to play this challenge! Link your project to the Oh Alice! Challenge blog and HAVE FUN!  You have until Friday Nov. 26th at 11:59 CST to get inky and enter to win! Happy creating and thanks for visiting!  I'lll be back around 10am with a UNITY post that you won't. want. to miss.  :)
