Curious & Curiouser Layout

Last year my baby sister got married. Her wedding was a lot of fun and I got to help with the decorations and bridesmaids jewelry. It was fun to use crafting for something other than myself or a class.

The picture in this layout is from Miriam and Jared's wedding. Peyton was pretty overwhelmed by the whole event. Family and friends she had never met before were just wanting to come up and say hi and to get to know her. But she just wouldn't have it. Plus she had a horrible rash around and inside her mouth that was so uncomfortable for her. But I found her in her element in the midst of all the ciaos when she had a moment all by herself.

Peyton is such a curious little girl. She already tries to figure out how her toys work and gets upset with herself when she can't tackle an obstacle. It's so her daddy! I love this picture because it captures her sense of discovery and amazement of everything around her. Plus she has an adorable oversized flower on her head! :D.

Here is a list of Supplies:
  • American Crafts - Brown flower patterned paper, pink solid cardstock, pink cardstock Thickers, glitter button {Dear Lizzy line for American Crafts}, blue and orange plastic flowers
  • Making Memories - Striped brown, pink and blue ribbon, turquoise ribbon, blue polka dot pattern paper {with the ticket edge border}
  • Offray - Orange ribbon {around jounaling block}
  • Stampin' Up - All the felt flowers, gun metal and pink gem stone brads, twine, rubons, kraft cardstock, yellow organdy ribbon, Chocolate Chip stamp pad

  • Autumn Leaves - circle journaling block stamp
  • Imaginisce - blue flowers {top left corner}
  • Doodlebug - orange Button Candy dots
  • Martha Stewart - Lace Trim border punch

If you can't tell by the Layout title, I just saw Alice In Wonderland right before I made it {I think the day before}. And I absolutely loved it. Johnie Depp I heart you regardless if you have orange hair or play a slightly gay pirate or the misunderstood Eddy Scissorhands!

Just before I saw the movie, I read both Alice In Wonderland and Through The Looking Glass for the first time. The thing that struck me the most about them was how true Disney actually kept to the story in their original adaptation that was the cartoon from the 1950's. I grew up on Disney! We were obsessed with all things Disney as a family. So naturally, that was one of my most favorite movies growing up. Whenever I would have sleepovers with friends, I would always rent it for me and my friends to watch. But I had never read the books until just this last month. Disney's adaptation back then combined both books together as if they happened in one dream. Whereas the original stories are two separate books. And "Looking Glass" isn't the same place as "Wonderland". But what Disney did was take the best moments out of both books and make them into one great movie. Parts obviously were left out of both stories, but they didn't change the overall direction which they have done so many times since that movie was made.

So on this most recent version, I loved that they didn't try to change their original masterpiece, but rather made this movie almost - almost, but not quite - a continuation of the original movie. Tim Burton has always been hit or miss for me. But he hit this movie right on! So if you haven't seen it, see it for sure!!!!!

Happy Scrapping Everyone!
