The Altered Alice: Week 2, CHAPTER 17 Hurrah for the Red, White & Blue!

The White Queen gave a deep sigh, and laid her head on Alice's shoulder. `I am so sleepy?' she moaned.
`She's tired, poor thing!' said the Red Queen. `Smooth her hair -- lend her your nightcap -- and sing her a soothing lullaby.'
`I haven't got a nightcap with me,' said Alice, as she tried to obey the first direction: `and I don't know any soothing lullabies."
`I must do it myself, then,' said the Red Queen, and she began:
Hush-a-by lady, in Alice's lap! Till the feast's ready, we've time for a nap: When the feast's over, we'll go to the ball -- Red Queen, and White Queen, and Alice, and all!
-- Chapter 9, Through the Looking Glass and What Alice Found There

My project:
This month I made a scrapbook page.  I haven't made one in awhile and really enjoyed it.  I used the Alice stamp from Stamping Bella and cut around her hands that are really holding a tea cup.  I used a flag cupcake topper that fit just perfectly in her hands.  All the paper is from the October Afternoon Rocket Age line, along with the wonder card and buttons.  For the hexagons I used the My Favorite Things Hexagons die.  All the edges of the patterned paper have Antique Linen distress ink on them.  The border punches I used were Stampin Up Scallop Trim and Martha S. Cherish.
Copic:  E42, 43, 50, 51, 93

I LOVE this! So on trend with the hexagons, I love the way they let you tie together so many patterns by using the same interlocking shape! The way you tucked the flag into Alice's hands is so clever. Sweet Pea is going to look so cute in this layout!
