Week 3, CHAPTER 15: Any Way You Go Will Get You Somewhere!

`Would you tell me, please, which way I ought to go from here?'
`That depends a good deal on where you want to get to,' said the Cat.
`I don't much care where--' said Alice.
`Then it doesn't matter which way you go,' said the Cat.
`--so long as I get SOMEWHERE,' Alice added as an explanation.
`Oh, you're sure to do that,' said the Cat, `if you only walk long enough.'
-- Chapter 6, Alice's Adventures in Wonderland
Any way you go will get you somewhere, so this month's challenge at The Altered Alice is ANYTHING GOES! It's all up to you, and we can't wait to see what road you will take with YOUR project. Wonderland entries are encouraged; you will be rewarded with two chances at the draw instead of one.  Multiple entries are fine as long as each is on a separate post. Time is running out; you have until May 25 to enter!

Your Weekly Inspiration!
Be sure to visit each design team member's blog, as they will have links to all these fabulous Alpha Stamps supplies. Remember you too can stock up on these items while the Alice section of Alpha Stamps is on sale!
Amy Bowerman Stucki of Plucking Daisies has done another upcycling makeover on this old table, which now looks like THIS!!!
What a fantastic makeover! Charms are glued around the edges of the table and the ring around the legs. Mini playing cards adorn the edges.
The top is a magnificent decoupaged collage. The characters from Alice's Adventures stamp set have been stamped on metal, and the center is a mix of elements from various Alpha Stamps collage sheets!
And here it is amidst the previous Wonderland garden art makeovers by Amy; isn't it charming? Be sure to stop by Plucking Daisies for MANY more photos and the links to all the Alpha Stamps products used.

Donna Mundinger of Popsicle Toes has created this charming scene using Alpha Stamps paper dolls! The Queen of Hearts has spotted that unpainted white rose and she is NOT happy! It looks like both Alice and the Duchess have been imprisoned in this birdcage.
The paper doll sheets have many layers. Look at the little hedge hog Donna created with a pompom, and tiny cards have formed a whicket!
I love all the elements Donna has added to decorate the top of the cage. I think the laughing cat is one of my favorite stamps in the new set. And look at the clever way she has used the flamingo stamp! Be sure to stop by Popsicle Toes to leave a comment and to see links to the Alpha Stamps supplies used.

Alpha Stamps Guest Designers:
Amy Mayfield of Amy's Blam decorated this fun house-shaped wooden shadowbox! It is full of Alpha Stamps goodies; take a close look!
I love the "clock" at the peak of the roof, and the embellished bottle cap is a neat crowning touch!
Every inch is decorated, eye candy everywhere! I love the way Alice is looking at it along with us, a really great touch!

Remember ALL entrants will receive a copy of the White Rabbit ATC digital collage sheet; it will be emailed at the end of the challenge. So enter here using the Linky Tool, and make sure your email address is correct! Please put your name as the TITLE when you submit your project:
