Everyone's favorite cracktastic classic, that had to be written with the help of drugs...
Alice's Adventures in Wonderland by Lewis Carroll

You may also choose to draw inspiration for it's sequel : Through the Looking Glass

Some Ideas:
Try to incorporate one or more of the following:
playing cards, chess pieces, hearts, crowns, tea cups, tea kettles, hats, cats, mushrooms, caterpillars, flowers, rabbits, clocks, the color sky blue...

Some quotes:
'Curiouser and curiouser!'

`we're all mad here.'

'shall I never get any older than I am now?'

`Everything's got a moral, if only you can find it.'

`Off with her head!'

"Drink me"

"Eat Me"

"I think she's pretty"

"There's no use in going back to yesterday, because I was a different person then."

See what the Design team did with it...

JULIE: inspired by the quote which describes her darling Brooke perfectly.
She's also got tons of flowers, a hat, some light blue, playing cards (a queen even!)
JULIE "I think she's pretty"

BREE: Bree sent this in way back at out DT call. I just loved it so! It's a canvas inspired by Alice. I love the 3D effect of the lace apron!

LOU: She's got playing cards and crowns galore on this pretty page about her sweet niece Kassi.

KIMMY: Inspired by the Jabberwocky poem in Through the Looking Glass. I had to memorize it in high school... still can quote most of it. I wrote the entire poem on the paper that I made myself in the center (using tissue paper/modge podge/ glimmer mist). I also included many elements from the Alice books in a collage around the poem: an illustration of Alice, a Queen of Hearts card, tea cup/tea pot tag w/ the words "drink me" on it, the tag from that Mad Hatter's hat, a cat, some Alice fan art, a crown, a garden, & a clock.

LORI: She used a quote from the book
"There's no use in going back to yesterday, because I was a different person then" and a lot of the same blue as Alice's dress, some flowers, and the word "journey" which is definitely a theme in the book.
