The White Queen gave a deep sigh, and laid her head on Alice's shoulder. `I am so sleepy?' she moaned.In the United States, we are celebrating our Independence Day this month, so we have a patriotic Red, White & Blue color challenge for you! Of course here in Wonderland we know those colors are for the White Queen, the Red Queen, and Alice's blue dress! Enter your red, white & blue project by July 27 for a chance to win a prize from our sponsor. All entries are welcome, but those that feature Wonderland will have two chances to win instead of one.
`She's tired, poor thing!' said the Red Queen. `Smooth her hair -- lend her your nightcap -- and sing her a soothing lullaby.'
`I haven't got a nightcap with me,' said Alice, as she tried to obey the first direction: `and I don't know any soothing lullabies."
`I must do it myself, then,' said the Red Queen, and she began:
Hush-a-by lady, in Alice's lap! Till the feast's ready, we've time for a nap: When the feast's over, we'll go to the ball -- Red Queen, and White Queen, and Alice, and all!-- Chapter 9, Through the Looking Glass and What Alice Found There

Your Weekly Inspiration
Erin Leveille of Stamp Till U Cramp created this wonderful Independence Day scrapbook layout, just waiting for the perfect photo of her Sweet Pea! I love the way she has scattered the hexagons across the layout, such a great way to integrate a lot of different paper patterns and also to use up scraps!
My Favortie Things Hexagons Die and the Stamping Bella Alice stamp from Simon Says Stamp! The papers are October Afternoon, bright and summery! I love the way she altered the stamped image - Alice is holding a large teacup, so she made some cuts around the inside of her hands to tuck the flag in place. Please visit Erin's blog to get the product links and to leave her a comment!
Magic Delights created a wonderful flower shaped shadowbox wall piece! The images are from various TJ Designs stamp sets, including A Walk Through Wonderland, Alice in Wonderland, and Down the Rabbit Hole. Each petal has a corresponding stamped image to go with the color, with colored roses dividing the panes:
For RED we have the Queen of Hearts and painting the roses red.
For WHITE we have the White Rabbit and the white knight chess piece.
