Michelle Perkett is hosting a Digi Day Challenge at SNR. The challenge is Wonderland. Right away after I read the post I went to see the definition on my dictionary, and this is what I found:

Wonderland (noun):
1. an imaginary place of delicate beauty or magical charm.
2. a places that excites admiration or wonder.

And the first thought on my mind was Dr. Seuss.
Did you know there is not version of Dr Seuss in Spanish? soooooo sad! but undestandable... when I was living on the USA I read him for the first time and I fell completly in love with his books. The stories, the drawings, the deep meaning in every single one of them. Sadly most of them are meaningless when you want to translate them to Spanish. I hope some day someone translates them keeping the same meaning as in English....
So, how I did this? It´s all digital! A few months ago I found a feebie called Oh the places you´ll play! and I was wanting to use it since then. My idea was to do Dr. Seuss little wonderland, a world where you can go there, and here and find funny things everywhere....
I printed all pieces on cardstock, cut it and glued it on an old CD. I paper pierced around the central circle and stitched it with embroidery floss and some seed glass beads. I added a beading wire to hang it and strung some beads also.
I wrote a quote from Dr Seuss with gel pen and I glued a sentence I cut out from a magazine.
Thanks so much Michelle for another wonderful challenge, I enjoyed this one very much!!
