Oh yes mustard! That'll do... Mustard? Don't let's be silly. Now lemon, that's different...

Mad Hatter: Why is a raven like a writing desk?


Alice: Riddles? Now let me see... why is a raven like a writing desk?

Mad Hatter: I beg your pardon?

Alice: Why is a raven like a writing desk?

Mad Hatter: [alarmed] Why is a what?

March Hare: Careful, she's stark ravin' mad!

Alice: But it's your silly riddle. You just said...

Mad Hatter: Easy, don't get excited!

March Hare: How about a nice cup of tea?

Alice: "Have a cup of tea," indeed! Well I'm sorry, but I just haven't the time!
 
 
Well this sight is not quite what you expect to be coming across the car park at 7am in a morning...This is Maries tribute to The Mad Hatter / Slash.....worryingly it suits her...lol


Next to arrive was this bundle of fun...


Now who does that remind you of...???


The lovely Katie appeared dressed as Alice...I decided not to bother dressing up and just wore my normal outfit...!!!!!


Tell you what it took me frilkkin ages to mask all these squares off...lol.  Cool pic for shoewatch...


and the Rabbit made sure it was warm and cosy.....

Some of the hats that were making an appearance were just fantabulosooooooo. This was freshly picked from her garden this m orning... I just frizzlingly lurve it.....


And heres the back, not sure whos going to water it though, lol...




Ooooops, don't know where The Goddess gets it from, do you...???


Some of the many, many cupcakes.


Kirsty tried to appear proffesional but failed alarmingly...






Do you think I would blend in well in a crowd..??

The Gorgeous, gorgeous, Giddy and Giddier, who did a sterling job of the refreshments.


The lovely Ruth utilised her baking supplies.


Oh so thats where she went...


The mini workshops were a fantastic success, the girls didn't stop for breath all day long..








My Northern Soulie bezzie had concoted a veritable masterpiece from Starbucks products.




Will the real Alice in Wonderland , please stand up..!!!!




Kates lovely concoction..

Always handy to have a spare set of cutlery on your person...


There I was one minute, chatting to bezzie Su ( sorry , discussing something  highly profesional ), the next minute, it all went dark, lol. 






Heres bezzie Su trying out my latest hat for size....Not particularly a good look, but it tends to keep her quiet. :-) :-) :-)








Now thats a cool trick Jay....


Heres the finished articles from last night....

and two more that I finished off today


Seems like they are a big hit, I can feel a class coming on




Just look at these beauties made by the lovely Teresa and her gorgeous daughter Claudia.


And these meals in themselves, by Our Ben and the lovely Katie..


Ooooooops must have nodded off before I posted this last night...!!!!! Hilarious...!!!

The festivities are continuing today, so why not come along and join in the fun...!!!

Loved the photos Dyan. Looks like you've had loadsa fun this weekend. Sorry I missed it all especially seeing all those yummy cupcakes.
Just realised Olive is the 'pink lady' according to my little Grand-daughter, Casey. Casey was at Viccy Stampers in St. Helens last month playing hide and seek with one of the 'grown-ups', lol. Then she noticed Olive and called her pink lady. Luv it, x

Dyan, We had a wonderful time on Sunday. Belle was so happy with her creations she got home and started creating some more. It was a great way to spen our (american)mothers day especially since DH was away. Bellealso could not wait to hang her new decor she won up in her room and was very excited it matched the colours perfectly. let me know if you need any help and DH will be bringing back some of the bags you needed. Angela and Belle
