The Outlawz Friday Coloring Alice in Wonderland Challenge

Now it's Friday. I bet that confused you when I posted on a Wednesday, huh? (It confused me, too, but don't tell anybody, OK?) Anyway, it's time for a new challenge at The Outlawz, in honor of Mad Hatter Day, (October 6th). I seem to be doing a lot of Alice-related things lately. Fun, though. I love all the different digis I have that work for that story-line.

This month we are sponsored by Karleigh Sue digis. The prize is a $10 GC, and will be awarded to a randomly-selected participant. So get your entries in this month, so you can shop for her darling digis! All you have to do is color an image on your project with any coloring medium you wish! Really looking forward to seeing what you come up with each week!

I will be using my Karleigh Sue image later this month. Today I have colored another Make It Crafty image, called Alice and Caterpillar. I printed this image on X-Press It BC and colored it with my Copics and Twin Touch Brush markers:

Skin: E000, E00, E21, E11, E04, R20
Hair: Y21, YR23, E15, E18
Stockings/Dress: BG10, BG11, BG13, BG15, BG18
Trim/Apron: YG0000, TTGY163, TTGY48
Lace: W0, W1
Pipe/Cup/Shoes: R000, R00, R12
Chair: R000, R00, R12, R01, R02
Smoke: BG10, BG11
Caterpillar: YG0000, TTGY163, TTGY48, BG11, BG13, BG15, BG18

I searched the internet for something that the caterpillar had said to Alice. But you know how the internet is. So it may be true or not. I didn't check Snopes. Hardeharhar. Oh, and I also added a silly frog button, just because he matched the greens I used in coloring. And that's it.

BTW, I thought I was done with the Outlander series after book seven. My sister, Merrilyn, informed me that there was a book eight out. Pooh. Well, you know I had to buy that book too, right? And it was expensive, relatively speaking, for an ebook, since it was just released in June. Sigh...and please don't mention this to Gary, if you happen to see him in the next, say, two years or so, 'K? Thanks, Peeps. I appreciate that. I am devouring this one so that I can at last be done with time traveling, which is so exhausting, right?

Pool update: we have narrowed the bids down to two pool companies. Will be deciding which one within the next week or so. Gary has driven the salesmen crazy, I have no doubt, with all his questions. Egads, he has driven me crazy, too. I know just how those guys feel. (Of course, they haven't had to put up with him for 44 years, either. I know, I know. I am a saint.) Pfffffffffffffffffft. (We all know Gary is really the saint for putting up with me day in and day out for over 16,000 days. But don't mention that to him, either, please. He doesn't need to know he is a martyr, too.)

Do check out the fabulous creations by my talented teammates: Carla, Kathi, and Laine! We also welcome our guest designer for the month, Joan LaBelle! She has a great creation this week as well! And then be sure to play along with us, OK?

And have a wonderful weekend! (Yay, the Cards play on Sunday this week! Boo, they play in Denver, so we have to watch on TV.)
