We're Off to See the Wizard Feb 16th

We're Off to See the Wizard the wonderful Wizard of Oz to hopefully get the Tin Man a heart, the Lion courage, and the Scarecrow a brain! But there's the poppy fields to beware of as you could get very sleepy! The Wicked Witch but we know she's afraid of water. The flying monkeys . . . just totally freaky looking!!!! You're probably still dizzy from the spinning whirling twirling house and watching all those things passing by like a nightmare expecially that Miss Gulch on her bicycle! Poor Toto hiding in the basket, but can you blame him? Don't pay any attention to the man behind the curtain as he knows not what he speaks! And then there are the delightful munchkins that sing 3 octives highly than humanly possible. I almost forgot the good witch Glinda - how could I forget her --- she was just too sugary sweet to my standards but as a Good Witch goes, she was the best, but why didn't she just tell Dorothy she had the power to return all along and wait until the end - geesh!And then only bad witches are ugly --- come on now! It’s the Merry Old Land of Oz! I have a feeling we're not in Kansas anymore Toto. . . .

We're paying homage to the Wizard of Oz today with our blog hop! So, grab your beverage of choice and those ruby red slippers of yours, click them twice and repeat after me - "there's no place like home, there's no place like home"!

We have a great line-up for you today and you should have arrived from - Jamie. If not, or you just dropped in to visit today, we don't want you to miss a single story of the travels of our "characters" from start to finish and would love for you to begin at the beginning of our hop - Lynne

I chose to make a configuration box. My BFF, Gina, and I get together on Tuesdays. We call ourselves "Tuesday People or TP" from the movie "Tuesdays with Morrie." We all enjoy pizza on that day. On Tuesdays we have decided to work on configuration boxes, well that's our passion right now. We just finished the WOO one and now are making an Alice in Wonderland one.  

The paper that is used in this box is Graphic 45. It is one of my favorite paper companies. Some of the images are cut from the paper, while others are done with stamps.  After  the box was done we taped the edges using various tapes, added some bling, and then added Tim Holtz feet, so it can proudly sit on the shelf.





As every good story, it has a beginning and a happily ever after - Dorothy went home and all was well with the world and Dorothy told Auntie Em - there's no place like home!!!!!! AWWWW how sweet! Hope you enjoyed my project and I must send you along your way to - Janet S and a place beyond the rainbow -

I do love to receive comments though,

Over the Rainbow, till we meet again.
