November Blog Hop: An Adventure in Wonderland

Time is up and I'm not sure where the month has gone!  I am excited to tell you that I have started a new job as an Administrative Assistant!  It fits in nicely with my volunteering and Stay at Home Mom gig, but I am re-learning how to schedule my time.  I'm sure I will get everything to fit together nicely soon.

Because of that, this month has been light on scrapbooking.  Boo for that. My daughter's birthday was this month and we planned an Alice in Wonderland party for her.  Actually, SHE did most of the planning.  She had a pretty firm idea about what she wanted.  I love being able to get some milage out of my scrapbook supplies to make some fun home decor items.  My husband loves that, too.  He is so cheap  creative!

From the invitations:
**Hand stamped and paper pieced tea pots, people!

To the banner on the fireplace mantle:
**The banner is a board mini album from Michaels.  I took it apart and painted the pages cream...painted over that with crackle finish....and painted over that with blue paint.  I added some die cuts from my Cricut layered over doileys left over from Valentine's Day projects.

To our garden display:

And our table setting:
**Yes, we had a chocolate fountain!  So much fun!

Oh, yes!  And she requested TULLE instead of streamers.  LOL  I added playing cards, butterflies and some hanging lanterns.  We had a great time!  And I am glad that is over with. 

Last up on our hop is Emily, so get over to her blog to see what she has made for our viewing pleasure.
