Chapter 28 from Oh, Alice! and a Farewell

*if you are here for my Just Us Girls challenge, please scroll up*
 


Child of the pure unclouded brow 
And dreaming eyes of wonder!
Though time be fleet, and I and thou
Are half a life asunder,
Thy loving smile will surely hail
The love-gift of a fairy-tale.

I have not seen thy sunny face,
Nor heard thy silver laughter;
No thought of me shall find a place
In thy young life's hereafter -
Enough that now thou wilt not fail
To listen to my fairy-tale.



Hello everyone!  We are celebrating the wonder of childhood today here at Oh, Alice and are thrilled to announce this week's sponsor, Paper Pretties Stamps!  Are you all familiar with Paper Pretties?   If you're new to them, check out their darling images!  If it's been a while, Paper Pretties is PROUD to announce that they're under NEW ownership and is pleased to offer you faster, cheaper shipping, WAY more reliable service, and lots of new items in the store.  We are thrilled to congratulate Heather Lee-Reppen on her new endeavor and are honored to have her sponsorship this week!


Paper Pretties is offering a Prize package of rubber stamps this week to ONE lucky winner!   This week's theme is simply to make a card with a LITTLE GIRL theme:)  Alice is such a whimsical free spirit and we LOVE that about her! Channel your inner girlie this week with this great (and free-to-be-you!) challenge!  
 
I want to thank the Oh, Alice! team as this is my last challenge with the group.  I have decided to step down from a few of my DT's and sadly decided that Oh, Alice was going to be one of them.  The girls on the group are AWESOME!!!  I will miss being a part of the team, but I will still be following along and playing whenever I can.  A big thank you to the Mad Hatter herself, Jessica, for the opportunity she gave me and all the encouragement.  I look forward to the day we meet in person!
 
Here's your weekly inspiration from the DT:
Thanks again to Paper Pretties for this great prize and for letting the DT play, too!   You have until FRIDAY, September 3rd at 8pm CST to play along this week for the prize!  Winner will be announced next week here on the blog!


Enjoy being young at heart and we'll see you soon back in WONDERLAND!

I am going to miss you as a team mate SO MUCH, but I understand about stepping down. Hope we stay in touch! I LOVE your card. The coloring is great and the implementation of the sketch is perfect. LOVE the rolled flowers, and especially the detail of having a tiny flower as the center of the embossed flower on the background panel! Mojo galore!
