wonderwork of lia

i passed my swap project with lia a couple of weeks ago and i'm going to show you what she gave me last saturday during our crafting day.  being a darling she is, lia learned that i love alice in wonderland and she ordered, borrowed, stole alice stuff and created this wonderful alice inspired wonderwork for me.  




words can not begin to explain how thrilled i was.  i was in such awe that i couldn't do anything else that day.  imagine the hard work she put into it—sleepless nights, called in sick, hours and hours of picture editing.  




lia is the distressing diva—our very own tim holtz meets suze weinberg.  those charms look familiar, thanks li...you know i love those!






she came late to our usual place which is a walking distance from where she lives. christine, our partner-in-craft—who helped with the stitching and the binding—said that either she must be still making sure everything sticks or overslept from sleepless nights.




every page is thoughtfully tied up with a ribbon...




and it opens up to another page which i'm to fill with my own story.




the cards soldiers turn journaling cards...




"open me" insert...




pop up alice and the queen of heart, which many people confused with the red queen from "looking through the glass"...




the white rabbit and the pocket watch of course—now we know who is our white rabbit in charge of timing and scheduling...hahahha...




i wonder what was that pin before it turned into the red queen's scepter.  looks like we're ready to steampunk the steampunk!




we were so deliriously happy, we forgot to take pictures.  thanks to our ever so thoughtful and organized christine for remembering and hurriedly grabbed her huge camera and sent this to me—edited too.

i sure will finish this album in the near future between our other projects.  for now i will just savor it and put it in save keeping before mr you know who take a taste of it.   now, off you go to lia's sanctuary!
