Chapter 45: Remembering Holiday Dreams

`Oh, I've had such a curious dream!' said Alice, and she told her sister, as well as she could remember them, all these strange Adventures of hers that you have just been reading about; and when she had finished, her sister kissed her, and said, `It WAS a curious dream, dear, certainly: but now run in to your tea; it's getting late.' So Alice got up and ran off, thinking while she ran, as well she might, what a wonderful dream it had been.

-- Chapter 12, Alice in Wonderland

So the challenge this week, should you choose to accept it, is to share something that helps you capture your holiday memories, like a layout, mini-album or picture holder of some kind, OR to use an icy blue color scheme!

Our generous sponsor, Nikki Sivils, is offering a huge prize to help you capture those memories! One randomly drawn winner will receive a 6x6 inch pad, 12x12 inch designer paper, and burlap covered buttons from the Happy Holly-Days Collection!
 If you aren't familiar with Nikki's products you really should check them out. She has some gorgeous lines of paper with coordinating, high quality, embellishments to match.
And if that's not enough, she has the cutest and funniest packaging I have ever seen.
For instance, her "Cool Cord Brads", say, "Brads. No relation to Steves", or her
burlap buttons say, "Burlap! Excuse me.", on the back of the packaging. Very witty.

For today's challenge I went with the blue color scheme using the
"Something for Everyone" line of papers and embellishments from Nikki.

This is probably one of the most beautifully coordinated cards I have ever made,
thanks to Nikki's loverly line of paper and embellishments .

I finally got to use my new Spesch Designer Stamps "Alice" digi.
She is one of the cutest Alice's I have seen.
Tracey also has an adorable Mad Hatter image that I am planning to use very soon! 

I have this really cool Alice postmark and a burlap covered button from Nikki Silvis
fit perfectly right in the middle! I just added some ivory ribbon and I this card was fini!

I really enjoyed working with Nikki's products and found that the card came together 
fairly easily with all the coordinating goodies on hand. If you'd like to try out some
of these awesome products for free, you should enter this week's challenge at Oh Alice! and
maybe you'll be the big winner of some very generous Nikki Silvis prize swag.
