Chapter 24: MORE Romance in Wonderland [came] the ten courtiers; these were ornamented all over with diamonds, and walked two and two, as the soldiers did. After these came the royal children; there were ten of them, and the little dears came jumping merrily along hand in hand, in couples: they were all ornamented with hearts. Next came the guests, mostly Kings and Queens...
The theme of this quote is couples, and that's what we celebrate in February with Valentine's Day. For the month of February, we are celebrating Romance in Wonderland! As always, you may enter any project that fits the challenge theme, but those that feature Wonderland will have two chances at the prize instead of one. Multiple entries are encouraged but each must be on a separate post; enter by Feb. 23.

We are using the fabulous Steampunk Romance images by Simply Betty Stamps . The people pictured in this stamp line resemble grown-up characters in Wonderland, don't you think? You should also check out the whimsical Alice in Wonderland collection. Here is what the oh, so talented Betty has to say:

Simply Betty Stamps started in 2010, when I was forced to close my little scrapbook store due to my last baby coming early. I was home, with a preemie couldn't do much but draw, craft, and had just discovered blogging! I started to nose around about digis, how could I do this, how could I do that? Slowly but surely Simply Betty Stamps was born! I have a quirky sense of humor and I believe it shows in my images. I have immortalized my kids in my images as it is what I love creating with, their everyday shenanigans and goofy ways. I love sharing my creativity, I can't tell you how awesome it is to see others creating with SBS images! I look forward to continuing to bring in the quirkiness to crafters across the globe and look forward to many years of fun images.

We continue the of our Romance in Wonderland Challenge at The Altered Alice and here we have a couple of tags from Donna Mundinger of Popsicle Toes, using more of the fabulous Steampunk Romance images from Simply Betty.

First off is Romance Annie who makes a fabulous Alice, don'tcha think? On her way to the croquet field Alice stops to pluck a rose from the Queen's tree where the cards are busily painting them red. I've used a book page for the background and colored only the roses, which helps set the stage.

And so you might ask, who is the object of her affection? Why none other than the Hatter, played by Romance Mercius, of course. Isn't he the dapper one?

Donna kept the color scheme going, as they are companion tags, using the same background DP but going a bit darker and more masculine here. Please visit Donna at Popsicle Toes to view more of the wonderful Wonderland details she's included on her tags.   It looks like the Hatter's pocket watch indicates it's time for romance and there is still time to enter our Romance in Wonderland Challenge.  You have until February 23 to link up your projects to the post below for a chance to win the $15 gift certificate to Simply Betty Stamps.
