FFF: Down The Rabbit Hole!

Friday, March 5, 2010

# "I'm so excited! And I just can't hide it!" #

Why? Because finally, today, the most anticipated release of a movie since Twilight is open to the public! Alice in Wonderland is here and I have tickets to see it tomorrow at an IMAX theatre in 3D!! Can you imagine how insane that is going to be seeing it on a HUGE screen and have everything jumping out at you?!? =)

We're all about Tim Burton and his movies in our house and my little girl is especially excited about Alice. When we went to see A Christmas Carol at the cinemas before Christmas, they showed a preview of Alice in Wonderland and as soon as the trailer ended, Syd exclaimed "Awesome!!" which had everyone around us in stitches! LOL If my girl was a sensitive soul, I absolutely wouldn't allow her to see it but she loves fantastical movies and Alice is definitely fantastical!

Which brings me to this week's Farm Fresh Friday challenge from The Greeting Farm....DOWN THE RABBIT HOLE WE GO! Your challenge, from our resident Alice fanatic, is to create an Alice inspired card to celebrate the opening of the movie.

I actually bought the TGF's Wonderland set when I was released in rubber, but because I'm part of the Critter Crew, I used Maggie the Bunny instead. Did you know she's related to the Hare from Wonderland?!? Well, she could be! ;) To create my Alice inspired card, I used some paper from Basic Grey's Eerie collection since it has a dark and mysterious mood to it and the colors seemed to match perfectly with those in the Alice Posters I've seen around. All the layers were sponged with Distress Inks and machine stitched for some added depth and texture. The sentiment is from the Wonderland set and will you please look at how many rhinestones I used on this card?!? That's more than I ever have used before!! Farmer Randi inspired me to be brave. :D

If you're still a bit stumped for ideas, definitely check out what the Farmers did for this challenge:

And we have a special surprise for you! The Crafty Critter Crew are back for another term!! Yep, Jess couldn't let us go and begged us to stay! (Alright, she didn't really beg, but you get the idea!) But that’s not all - please help me welcome two new gals to the Critter Crew, who will be designing alongside Mercy, Sparkle and myself??

We're all so excited to have them on the team with us for the next 5 months! So you'll see a whole lot more Critters running around on the farm now! :D

So CUTE Sandra!! Ha, I love that you 'indulged' with your rhinestones!!!! It looks AMAZING!! Such a beautiful mix of DPs and you know how much I love that ribbon!
And is that some of the original BG in the background of the photo?? Are you hoarding it, too?!?! I have a bunch of it untouched..stashed away. ;o)

I am going to see Alice tomorrow, too! Maybe we'll be watching it simultaneously! :o) Have fun!

Hi Sandra, amazing card!!

I hope you enjoy(ed) the movie. I am not a Tim Burton fan so it's not on my list of need to see.

Take care.
