I am SOOOOOOOOOOO excited to kick off our first challenge just in time for National Scrapbook Day! I hope you can all play along and be inspired by our awesome design team!

The Wonderful Wizard of Oz by Frank L. Baum

Your challenge:
Choose 2 OR MORE of the following to include on your layout, atc, altered project, or card.

THE SHOES: red OR silver sequins or glitter (in the book the ruby shoes are
actually silver)
DORTHY'S DRESS: blue gingham OR white eyelet lace
YELLOW BRICK ROAD: use the color yellow somewhere
TWISTER: twisted ribbons
EMERALD CITY: green background OR only use green embellishments
OZ ICONS: rainbows OR hearts OR bubbles
MUNCHKIN LAND: a grouping of 5 or more flowers OR something teeny tiny
WORDS OF WISDOM: the quote "No Place Like Home" OR the word "Wonderful" OR any other quote from the book.
MUSIC: lyrics from any "Wicked" song or song from the movie (as they were
both inspired by the book)
OZ VINTAGE: one of these images:
THEME: friendship OR journey OR home

Design Team Projects:

Lou created this "wonderful" LO with silver glitter, and wings... there's also rainbows and a lot of green in there!

I used blue gingham (my neice's dress), Yellow brick road (that's a painted prima ribbon package!) , "journey" & wings. The picture itself makes me think of The Wizard of Oz...

Bree made this awesome altered book/frame. Look for a tutorial from her later this week!!!
She used wings, green, journey, and something tiny.

Haggith created this stunning layout with a green patterned background, the theme JOURNEY, and look at all those hand cut & doodled on bricks!!! The Quote on the page in teeny tiny letters (Think munchkins!!) says..."just follow the road this crazy life will take you! I know you will make it!"

Check out Julie's blue gingham dream! That rainbow frame is freaking awesome! Those are "Wicked" cool lyrics too! The flowers are the perfect touch! Who says you can't use flowers on a boy page.

I am lovin' Lori's dreamy LO. Those are some of my favorite "Wicked" lyrics...and just look at all that GREEN!

Don't make your project ABOUT the book,
inspired by it!

The prize for this challenge was donated by Bree... one of her fabulous Crop Suey Kits!
Please post a link to your project here as a response to this post no later than midnight on May 15th. Thank you & have fun!
