Oh, Alice - I'm a guest at the Tea Party!

Holy man - I typed this up at 8 this morning & have been having 'technical difficulties' ever since!  My laptop's been having hissy fits all day!
If you've been here before, you'll gather from the last post that I'm Oh, Alice's August Guest Designer - and I am SO excited! 

If this is your first time visiting me, then hello & welcome - glad you came!

Now.... better late than never, right?  Between Jess's computer issues & my inability to keep track of days, I guess this will have to do!

CHAPTER 25: White Rabbit, White Gloves, White Wonderland...

"After a time she heard a little pattering of feet in the distance, and she hastily dried her eyes to see what was coming.It was the White Rabbit returning, splendidly dressed, with a pair of white kid gloves in one hand and a large fan in the other: he came trotting along in a great hurry, muttering to himself as he came, `Oh! the Duchess, the Duchess! Oh! won't she be savage if I've kept her waiting!'

Alice felt so desperate that she was ready to ask help of any one; so, when the Rabbit came near her, she began, in a low, timid voice, `If you please, sir--' The Rabbit started violently, dropped the white kid gloves and the fan, and skurried away into the darkness as hard as he could go..."

Hello dolls!

We are back in the WHITE heat of August with another fabulous challenge for you today! This week at Oh, Alice we are trying to BEAT that heat, and you know, they say you shouldn't wear dark colors this time of year to keep cool!

In the spirit of that, along with our WHITE Rabbit and his WHITE kid gloves, guess what our challenge is for you today?

That's RIGHT. WHITE WONDERLAND. And we're not talkin' about Christmas! Your mission today, should you choose to accept it is to create (WITH the exception of your main image panel) an ALL WHITE card or project!

Well, here's what I came up with:

I used Lil Lolita '50's Lillith' - I think she's my absolute fave of the Lil Lolita line.  I already had a white base with a cutout (Nesties Labels 9) sitting in my stash, so I used it; I sprayed it with Marshmallow & Cherry Blossom Glimmer Mists, then backed the opening with some iridescent white paper from my scrap bag.  I made a crumply flower from tissue paper & a brad, and sprayed it with GM, too.  Then I added a bit of lace & some pearls, and that was that.  (For the record, the pearls really are white, not ivory like they appear....)

I hope to see you play along this week!
