Oh, Alice! Chapter 11: Little People... Big Wonderland

* Please scroll down to the next post for Prairie Fairy and PaperTemptress' Digital Blog Hop! Thank you!!!*

"Tweedledum and Tweedledee

Agreed to have a battle;
For Tweedledum said Tweedledee
Had spoiled his nice new rattle.

Just then flew down a monstrous crow,
As black as a tar-barrel;
Which frightened both the heroes so,
They quite forgot their quarrel."

Good morning!!!

I decided to create lil mini-folders for my boys, Nicholas and Matthew :)

So I am dedicating today's post to
MY 'Tweedledee and Tweedledum'
hee, hee!

They are always carrying around stickers, scraps of paper, Ben10 Alien or Bakugan playing cards - you know, boy stuff ;) So, I thought that these folders would help them not misplace them! or even better, get tossed around!

I let them choose the DP and colors...
and you can really see the age difference and personalities shine through with their choices :)

Nicky is 6 1/2 years old and is very mature and serious for his age, but as sweet as candy, a sensitive and very loving lil boy! Everyone falls in love with him within seconds of meeting him! He has a one-of-a-kind stunning, irresistable smile!!! He is definitely going to have the girls swooning, eeek! ;)

For Nicky's folder, we used Bugaboo Stamps' "White Rabbit" image
(I was able to adopt him when he was a freebie!) and Cosmo Cricket's "Joy Ride" DP.


My little Mattt is almost 4! He is my mush-ball! I've never seen something so small with such a huge heart! He loves to joke around, he has the most contagious laugh! and play games with you, he's quite the character ;) People are instantly drawn to him and cannot resisit playing along to whatever he desires! Another lady-killer ;)

BasicGrey's "Lime Rickey" DP.


Alice Themed Mini Folder Details:
Paper(s): Cosmo Cricket "Joy Ride" DP, BasicGrey "Lime Rickey" DP,
Papertrey Ink CS
Ink(s): Copic Markers; SU Chocolate Chip Ink for distressing  
Accessories: K&Company Alphabet Cards,
Spellbinders Small Tag and Small Ovals Nestabilities, CM Corner Rounder Punch  

They are my loves! My life!
I am so proud to be their Mommy :)

Thanks so much for stopping by!!!
