We're Off to See the Wizard Trvisted Blog Hop 6-1-12

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 especially 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 octaves highly than humanly possible. I almost forgot the good witch Glinda - how could I forget her --- she was just too sugary sweet for 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 instead of waiting 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"!

For Lynne’s Blog Candy she is offering a 7 - piece paper assortment of 12 x 12 pieces of paper by Paper House Productions. 

We have a great line-up for you today and you should have arrived from Shelly.  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 at
For my first project, I am posting some WOO cards that I made. 


My second project is a WOO book.  I took the class at Impress, taught by the talented Lavonne for the WOO book. She has such a special talent I hate missing any of her classes. She inspires me and gives me such great ideas to think outside f the box.

The book was made using Graphic 45’s Wizard of Oz collection. I love this paper collection.
It would be unheard of to take a Lavonne class without hours of cutting out things, so detail scissors are a must item to bring to class. She also has us eboss all of the stamping. It shows up better and has more of dramatic look to it.

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! I hope you enjoyed my project and I must send you along your way to Amy or maybe Rhonda, if Amy doesn't post and a place beyond the rainbow!  

Thanks for stopping by!!!

  3. WOO HOO!! These are beautiful! you did a wonderful job!! I love all the detail you put into it!! I see your a paper hoarder, also! :)

  4. What is WOO? These are incredible. Amazing job. I wanted to pick out a favorite part, but there are so many incredible details I can't choose. Thanks so much for sharing... wow...

    1. WOO is just the acronym for Wizard of Oz. I'm lazy and also hooked on them from work. LOL

  5. wow so amazing great job. It is a pleasure being on the hop with you today. hugs

  6. I have never heard of WOO - guess I"m behind the times - detail cutting is something I hate (being left-hand & finding scissors that actually work right is the biggest problem - which is why I love cutting machines)

    your book is wonderful - great job on it

    1. WOO is just the acronym for Wizard of Oz. I'm lazy and also hooked on them from work. LOL Cutting is a stress relief for me. I can sit for hours and just cut out paper. I had never thought about left handed being harder to find good scissors, I do most things left handed but cut and write. LOL
