CHAPTER 22: Dancing under the Sea...

"Will you walk a little faster?" said the whiting to the snail;


"There's a porpoise right behind us and he's treading on my tail!
See how eagerly the lobsters and the turtles all advance!


They are waiting on the shingle, will you come and join the dance?
Will you, won't you, will you, won't you-WILL you join the dance?"


Hello everyone!  Greetings from here in Wonderland...or maybe today it's UNDERland?  As in Under the Sea, perhaps ;)


So, today's challenge involves all things sea-worthy and we at Oh, Alice are challenging YOU to create a card or project using sea life!  Turtles, whales, dolphins are fabulous as are other sea creatures as in merfolk and those deep, dark creatures you sometimes hear about but seldom see.... the possibilities are as endless as the ocean itself!


We also have a FUN prize for you this week!  One lucky winner will receive a Sweet Pea Rubber Stamp courtesy of Oh, Alice!  These stamps are large and BEAUTIFULLY detailed and we just happened to have one 'swimmin' around!'  Will YOU be the lucky winner?  ;)


Be sure to upload your card or creation using InLinkz here!  You have until Friday, July 23rd at 8pm CST to enter the challenge, so have fun and we'll see you back next week! enter your submission to be considered for the prize!   If you are uploading to a public gallery, be sure to include keyword OAC22.   


Thanks and enjoy the summer sun and sea!
