Winner & Honorable Mentions. CHAPTER 17 - Hurrah for the Red, White & Blue

The White Queen gave a deep sigh, and laid her head on Alice's shoulder. `I am so sleepy?' she moaned.
`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

Honorable Mentions:
All the entries were wonderful and I loved all of them! I will mention a few until I run out of time. 
I hope that those mentioned below will display this blog badge with pride!

I love the inky energy of this entry from Artwolf2009! I especially love the Whtie Rabbit stepping through the alarm clock die cut!

Jacki of Skullduggery entered a great layered card with an edgy Alice image by LillithV, which is quite a different spin on our favorite character! Good job on adding the sewing, that stitched border adds a lot of texture! ;-)

Rebecca of Paper Fun with Bex created a fun flip book. Each page is divided at the neck, so you can combine any character's head with all different bodies!

This charming Alice outfit was crocheted by Rita Ataide of Gil Scrap e Arte! What a great job she did with this little dress and pinafore!

Another entry from Rebecca of Paper Fun with Bex caught my eye - this paper doll ATC comes with a clip for the extra outfits, so you can play with this set as well as admire how cute it is!

Aren't these balloon butterflies fun on this Alice tag from Sylvie of Barnies Baustelle? I love all the layered images and textures, lovely!

The other entries were also fabulous, but I am out of time! Take a look at them here and leave some comments for our talented participants! (Note: if you are viewing this post in a reader or email, please click on the title of the post to go to the blog to see the entries or submit a project.)
