Alice Sneak Peek

It's starting to come together! Monday was a publishing deadline and I'm not quite finished with all of my painting for my newest party theme -Alice in Wonderland.

I had planned a huge photo shoot with 6 kids and my entire party set up, flamingo croquet and kids in costume but since I had a deadline, I scaled it down.
This is my dear little friend, Kylee. She just turned 6 last week and I think she makes the perfect Alice!

She had just finished a long, hard day at Kindergarten, but she agreed to do some modeling for me. Of course, I did buy her lunch at McDonald's and we ate it in my daughter's playhouse. I really know how to treat my employees well!

The whole shoot took about 10 minutes. Kylee was a great model.
I told her about my plans for the BIG photo shoot and maybe we could have it on Sunday
but I had a Princess party to host as well that day.

"You can do it" she reassured me. "Am I coming to the Princess party, too?"
What a sweet potato!
The first picture is what I am using for the ad.
I'll let you know how it turns out!

Oh Donna, it looks FABULOUS! Great Job. Do you think it's okay for a 30something year old to have a Mad tea party ;-)
