We're Off To See The Wizard Blog Hop

  • We're Off to See the Wizard the wonderful Wizard of Oz to hopefully get the Tin Man a heart, the Lion courage, and the Scarecrow a brain! But there's the poppy fields to beware of as you could get very sleepy! The Wicked Witch but we know she's afraid of water. The flying monkeys . . . just totally freaky looking!!!! You're probably still dizzy from the spinning whirling twirling house and watching all those things passing by like a nightmare expecially that Miss Gulch on her bicycle! Poor Toto hiding in the basket, but can you blame him? Don't pay any attention to the man behind the curtain as he knows not what he speaks! And then there are the delightful munchkins that sing 3 octives highly than humanly possible. I almost forgot the good witch Glinda - how could I forget her --- she was just too sugary sweet to my standards but as a Good Witch goes, she was the best, but why didn't she just tell Dorothy she had the power to return all along and wait until the end - geesh!And then only bad witches are ugly --- come on now! Its the Merry Old Land of Oz! I have a feeling we're not in Kansas anymore Toto. . . .

    We're paying homage to the Wizard of Oz today with our blog hop! So, grab your beverage of choice and those ruby red slippers of yours, click them twice and repeat after me - "there's no place like home, there's no place like home"!

    We have a great line-up for you today and you should have arrived from Tami's Blog  . If not, or you just dropped in to visit today, we don't want you to miss a single story of the travels of our "characters" from start to finish and would love for you to begin at the beginning of our hop So travel on over to Lynne's- Blog and get started on a fabulous journey through the land of OZ.

    My project is digital layout covering my grandson's 3rd Birthday ! My daughter loves to dress the kids up in themed outfits for Halloween and this particular year she chose the Wizard of Oz as her theme I was commissioned to make Dorothy's dress which my granddaughter thoroughly loved. My grandson was the scarecrow kinda cute don't you think. Well his birthday is Nov 4th so they decided to make it a costume party. Of course my daughter got to play her favorite part "Glenda" the Good Witch and my son-in-law obliged and played the Wicked Witch and my layout was born!

    The paper and embellishments are from  Urban Mermaid Designs she has some really cute digital stuff.. I used Creative Memories Storybook software to design the page !
    I hope you enjoy my tale and the layout.
    As every good story, it has a beginning and a happily ever after - Dorothy went home and all was well with the world and Dorothy told Auntie Em - there's no place like home!!!!!! AWWWW how sweet! Hope you enjoyed my project and I must send you along your way to Rhonda's Blog and a place beyond the rainbow -
