Creative Souls Alice ATC swap

I'm a member of the Creative ATC Swap group at Creative Souls http://www.microsoft.com/isapi/redir.dll?prd=ie&pver=6&ar=CLinks and last month participated in the Alice In Wonderland swap. My partner was the talented Patti Koosed. This is the ATC she created for me:
I couldn't decide if I wanted to go traditional or play with an idea I had for an Emo Alice so I did both. I'm on my laptop at the moment so only have access to the traditional one. I created this using the Wonderland digital scrapbook kit by Scrappers Delight.
I call it Alice In Thought.
