Alice Swap

My friend Dee Dee and I are participating in and Alice Swap. We have been wanting to do one for a while. When we hear that the Graphic 45 Alice paper was at The Crafty Scrapper, we ran over before our retreat and then got busy.
Dee Dee had a fabulous idea to share swap some tags. These are the big boy tags that have some serious room for embellishing. I don't know which tag is my favorite....but I am always partial to the Mad Hatter. Probably because my Little Luke was the most precious Mad Hatter and then Sam had a wonderful time with his hand me down costume.
I inked these tags repeatedly and stamped them. Then I had fun tearing up paper and inking it. When I made the Queen tag, I can't help but picturing a little Rachel Rike yelling out, "All Ways are My Ways!" or "Get to the Part Where I Loose My Temper!"
This paper is mega cute with the Halloween additions. The Hatter is holding candy corn. The Queen has horns and a tail. Alice has a wicked, cool hat.
Now the Cat....he is just creepy to me.
I like the Rabbit. He is a tad neurotic. But, I really like that he wants to be punctual.
I had such a great time making the tags. I really didn't want to give them up. I took the pictures so I can recreate them for myself if I ever have enough time.
