It's Time For A Magical Adventure - Scrapping Fun Kits Design Team

Today I am scrapping the left over photos from my We're All Mad Here layout for the Scrap the Girls November 2017 Challenge entry.   The video for this layout is now up on my channel, you can find it here.

I grabbed out some extra bits in addition to my remaining Alice kit; these included Echo Park Alice in Wonderland 6x6 paper pad and Echo Park Alice in Wonderland Chipboard Accents.

I started with the mixed media paper from the Alice Kit as the teal colour on the paper matched the Mad Hatter in my photo's coat so well so I knew I wanted that paper behind that photo.
I then started playing with papers from my Echo Park 6x6 Alice in Wonderland paper pad and the check paper from the kit to build my paper layers.

Once they were all glued down I decided it needed some of the gorgeous character washi so I added it in just slightly tucked under the papers on each side (so glad I hadn't glued all the way to the edge at this point).

I then played with my embellishments.  Starting with the sample of purple lace as it was a perfect layer to tuck under the Alice photo.

I then added my mini Cheshire Cat Tail by tucking the top under my photos, which meant my photo needed to be popped up so I carefully peeled it up and then cut bits of the chipboard stickers waste to go under my photo matte and added Helmar Liquid Scrap Dots in as well to give it some good but adjustable lift.

Now that the tail and photo were how they should be I set about adding the final bits to finish it all off.  I added a quote from the Chipboard Accents using Helmar Liquid Scrap Dots under the left hand side to give it the right amount of lift on that side (you can see how it is popped up in the photo of the paper layers under the Mad Hatter photo).
I then added the bottle and mushroom chipboard but they didn't want to stick so I used some Helmar 450 Quick Dry Adhesive to help them stick.
I built a mini scene with the catapillar to get him to sit right I added some chipboard scrap under the top section and glued him to the mushrooms and the layout with Helmar 450 Quick Dry Adhesive.
Next I added the key, mouse and little butterflies and finished off with a doodly boarder and my journalling.  I am really happy with how the layout turned out.

By the way Alice aka miss_deelicious is the only cosplayer on the day whose details I managed to get, she spotted me when she was on the way to her car to head home and just had to get a selfie "Where have you been all day." is what she happily shouted when she spotted the Cheshire Cat, totally making my day.  Hmm I think I need to add "Where have you been all day: to my layout.  I will need to get it out and spend some time thinking about that.
