CHAPTER 28: (taken from "Child of the Pure Unclouded Brow: preface to "Through the Looking Glass"
Child of the pure unclouded brow
And dreaming eyes of wonder!
Though time be fleet, and I and thou
Are half a life asunder,
Thy loving smile will surely hail
The love-gift of a fairy-tale.
I have not seen thy sunny face,
Nor heard thy silver laughter;
No thought of me shall find a place
In thy young life's hereafter -
Enough that now thou wilt not fail
To listen to my fairy-tale.

Before we get to this week's theme, a bittersweet Goodbye is in order to our FABULOUS August Guest, Stephanie Jones as well as two of our full time twisted sisters, Kim and Kristy. We are SO sad to see you all go and THANK YOU-ALL of you for such a wonderfully twisted time! HUGS!!!!
This week's theme is simply to make a card with a LITTLE GIRL theme:) Alice is such a whimsical free spirit and we LOVE that about her! Channel your inner girlie this week with this great (and free-to-be-you!) challenge!
This week I worked with this little cutie, Sophia Ballerina. The sketch I used is from The Pink Elephant TPE81. I'm not totally happy with how it turned out. The problem is the scale of the whole thing. I should have made my image smaller because my designer paper has such a large print on it. The image on the DP (Art Warehouse Dance) is a pink sketch of a ballerina. I used it inside my card too, so at least you can see it there. I used Copics to color the image, loving the way the skirt came out.
Thanks again to Paper Pretties for this great prize and for letting the DT play, too! You have until FRIDAY, September 3rd at 8pm CST to play along this week for the prize! Winner will be announced next week here on the blog!
Enjoy being young at heart and we'll see you soon back in WONDERLAND!
