We're Off to See The Wizard Blog Hop Revisited

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"!

For Blog Candy we have a 7 - piece paper assortment of 12 x 12 pieces of paper by Paper House Productions

We have a great line-up for you today and you should have arrived from Anita~  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

For my project, I made a journal. I decided to make a video of it so you can see the entire journal. Thanks for watching!! 


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 you have reached the end of this blog hop. Now I must send you somewhere over the rainbow.

  13. Sorry about all of the spelling errors in my comment. I got a new computer and the keyboard placement is way different than my old one. My fingers always seem to get out of place.

  14. I love your WOO idea book. I am always doodling ideas and sketching out project ideas. I'm definately going to make one with all my design template papers in it. I love how you used some of that paper we all have around that we love so much we don't want to use it. lol. The acrylic pieces to the front and back are a great touch.

  15. Oh my! I abolutely LOVE this, from the concept right down to every detail! I love how did the video to showcase it! So great to put a voice to one of my bestest friends! :) My fave part of the video was how you did your lists backwards and kept them that way! lol That is something I would do myself! lol The sketches are a great idea, as I am always doodling on parer and drawing my owm. The acrylic front and back are also a superb idea, one which I never would have thought of! You're so clever!

  16. What an AWESOME journal!! I love all the fabulous papers you used for it (especially the one with the gold background and all of the characters at about 5min into the video!!)... Thanks for sharing your talent in the hop!! I'm so happy I was able to hop with you!! :)
