Let's get Shabby challenge

Let's get Shabby has a great challenge this month. 

*Create a Shabby garden on your project
*Include a quote from anywhere in the book ‘ Alice in Wonderland'.
As gardens are usually full of a mix a flowers you will need to include a variety of at least five flowers on your creation.

I love Alice in Wonderland ~ who doesn't ~ and can't wait for the movie to come out.  It looks absolutely fantastic. 
And I love using flowers on my pages.  Prima is one of my favourite manufacturers.
So here's my layout.

The quote I used is from Chapter 6.  It is Alice and the Cheshire Cat discussing who's mad and who isn't ~ or is everyone?  The photo is Breanna at Whistler last summer jumping in one of those harnesses.  She went sooooo high. 

I stopped in at Unforgettable Memories yesterday and they are still waiting on orders to come in so I'm still working from my stash.  I used the same ClubScrap culinary kit from the last two layouts.  That wire netting is still just as sharp and pokey as it was yesterday.  My fingers feel like they've been used as a pincushion.
I use vellum for the clouds.
Heidi Swap ghost flowers with little flower punches behind and bling brad centers. 
I also made good use of my punches.  Two fern leaf punches,  little flower punch and my biggest butterfly punch.
The big brads in the butterflys are by Rouge de Garance.
MM journal note.
Piggy Tales title ~ got this at CKC Seattle last November.
And lastly a little stickles in the center of each mini flower.
