Tweedle Dee

Tweedle Dee! Tweedle Dum! I’m so happy to be a part of the Graphic 45 and Want2Scrap Blog Hop today!

The prizes will be hidden on two of the blogs (one for each company) so be sure to visit all of the blogs and leave a comment to increase your chances of winning.

A clean and simple design to celebrate a fabulous trip to NYC with a good friend. I was thrilled to remember these Hallowe’en in Wonderland papers and Greetings from Wonderland stamps (Crafty Secrets) were in my stash. It’s put together with a Labels Nine (Spellbinders) kraft cut and accented with Labels Nine Black Blank Rhinestones from Want2Scrap. I can’t wait to stick this in the mail! Here’s why:

Jenn and I spent our last NYC in Central Park. Really should have spent a full day there. It was so beautiful. This is taken at the south-central entrance off of 59th. From there we headed west around the park perimeter.Β I promise, I’ll tie this all up with Alice in Wonderland!

The park was so beautiful, an oasis in the midst of Manhattan, and we knew we’d only have time to see about half of the park, even if we clipped along. So, just a few snapshots.

This is the 7th Regiment Memorial to honor Union soldiers of the Civil War.

We walked around the park to the west. This is Tavern on the Green.

Imagine Mosaic at Strawberry Field.

Strawberry Field.

The Lake.

This is Bethesda Fountain ~ Angel of the Waters.

Beautiful wall carvings on stairs down to fountain.

And, the final sight to see from our wonderful trip, the incredible bronze Alice in Wonderland. Isn’t it gorgeous? I promised you I’d tie it all back to the project. This was our final stop at Central Park before we raced back to the hotel for our luggage and jetted off to the airport in a famous NYC Yellow Cab.

I’ll try to share more pictures in the next few days. We only took about 600 or so.

Thanks for stopping by today. It’s a treat to work with the Want2Scrap ladies this month, and I’m appreciative of their invite to today’s hop. If you’ll excuse me, I’m off to daydream about my next NYC trip.

See you soon!
