Sometimes all you need is a good Challenge...

Alice took up the fan as the hall was very hot. She kept fanning herself all the time as she was talking. "Dear dear, how queer everything is today. And yesterday things went on just as usual. I wonder if I've been changed in the night? Let me think, was I the same when I got up this morning? Or if I'm not the same, then who in the world am I? Ah, that's the great puzzle."

Here is a layout I did tonight for 2 Challenges; first off, the ScrapMojo Challenge this time was to use Alice in Wonderland as your inspiration, and also to use some lace. I absolutely LOVED Christina's darker interpretation, very much my style, so I took inspiration from that in many ways. I was also inspired by this print that I saw earlier today...again, darker, but I love it. I chose to use a quote that was used in an episode of LOST this past Season (ha), and I also used a few items from the story, including a key and the watch, and the title "Through the Looking Glass" (also the title of an episode of LOST-haX2). Purple and gray are my fav winter colours right now, so great!

The second Challenge was a new one I've never played before called The Creative Type. It's all about type and text, I love it, and this week's Challenge (#6) was to mix up your types. I used 5-7 different types on this layout (background patterned paper, computer type, Dymo labeler type, word sticker type, strip of paper type, as well as date stamper type and question mark type.) Christina was the Guest designer on this as well, so she's been a huge inspo to me tonight! Thanks Christina!

Well, off to bed now. Night all!
