This months paperlane challenge 'inspired by a book' - Alice in wonderland

Well I'm excited to say the Paperlane Challenges are starting again.
This months challenge is 'inspired by a book'

So with a little inspiration from Cas, as couldnt think how to tie the rubber stamps in to the book.
for my 'inspired by a book'
Alice in wonderland by Lewis Carroll which was wrote in 1865.Originally the book was called
Alice's Adventures in Wonderland but was commonly shortened to Alice in Wonderland
It is still a very popular book and enjoyable to both young and old.
So on the cover of my book card I wanted to include many of the key elements of the book .
Used magnolia stamp to portray Alice and of course the white rabbit.
Added some Tim Holtz tickets distressed with vintage photo ink,
white paint and homemade glimmer mist.
Stamped and coloured with copics the toadstools.
Just behind the handmade  red rose is the Cheshire Cat.
For the bottle I used a Tim Holtz bottle , added perfect pearls and glossy accents, added the label an the gold key so she can grow small to enter the small door.
Added a watch charm as the white rabbit was late of course
Added the playing cards the crown and the heart charm  to represent the queen of hearts.
View from the side.
Inside my book card is a scrapbook mini album
you untie the ribbon closure
and open the little door and inside is a quote from the book.
This then opens to revel pocket pages.
In the pocket is a small tag. and a larger tag that slides out of the top of the pocket page.
Each tag has a quote from the book, theses can be used as photo mats or for you to
journal on the back.
over the page
Here's a look at the next pages again tags with quotes.
And here is the back page of the mini.

and lastly the back of the inside of the book with mini album

I got a little carried away on this project. There were so many elements and quotes from the book, that the project just expanded and ran away with me.
I have a few favourite quotes from the book.

If I had a world of my own, everything would be nonsense. Nothing would be what it is because everything would be what it isn't. And contrary-wise; what it is it wouldn't be, and what it wouldn't be, it would. You see?”

“If everybody minded their own business, the world would go around a great deal faster than it does.”    

“Speak in French when you can’t think of the English for a thing--
turn your toes out when you walk---
And remember who you are!”

 So now its your turn to show us on the paperlane challenge blog
A book that's inspired you!
