My Own Little Wonderland

Hi everyone! Well, here it is - I can finally show y'all what I made for Deb over at Sparkling Scrapbooks, hurray! lol

But first, if you haven't been there already, you must see my partner's blog and all of the wonderful things she made for me! Just click the collage to visit Deb!

**This post is mega picture heavy so you've been warned. lol

This box was the first idea I had and one of the last things I finished. It gave me fits from the beginning. It was probably because I was trying to alter a Hannah Montana box and it didn't appreciate me taking away its tween-ness. lol
But I finally prevailed, in your face Montana! (Singer not the State) lol ;)

Here's the top:

And here is the inside. I added some "eat me" cookies I made, some crocheted and some made out of paper.

For the bottom I created an elevated support for the new bottom I made out of sheet music. I also lined the sides with teal tulle and added the sequins. By the way, the new bottom I made for the box was inspired by the lovely box made for me by Yvonne at Do More With Less. Thanks for the inspiration Y! :D

This wall hanging was the first thing I made and it's still my favorite! It was actually a little clipboard but once I removed the hardware to paint it, I decided to leave it off and add wire instead. :D

This is a crown for the Queen of Hearts. Standing among some white roses that those naughty card soldiers have tried to paint red. And boy do I wish I could claim to have created the painting roses red idea but alas, I got it from Lark & Lola. lol
Top view:

Had to add some spray on glitter as well of course. :D

This is a picture frame I made for Deb in honor of her Grandmother. It was a basic wooden frame covered in patterned paper, bits and baubles and of course it was begging for a sequined border. Yes! lol

I laughed when I saw that Deb had made me an Alice in a jar since I had already made this one for her! lol I created a background which you can't really see because of the pink tulle. The tulle was against me! lol

This is the top of the jar:

A "D" for Deb with a Hello Kitty card soldier! :D

I also created this tag for her:

I also made some tags for each thing with a little poem on each with the intention that she could string them together to form a wall hanging but of course, I forgot to take pictures of it. LOL And there you have it! *whew* lol

Thanks for taking a peek at the things I created for Deb, this was so much fun! Thanks for being my partner Deb! Again, for those of you that participated in this swap, THANK YOU SO MUCH! I've so enjoyed seeing what you've created. Feel free to leave your swap post links in your comment!
