{seeking her true destiny}

Alice in Wonderland
an enchanting movie
that I just saw with my daughter
we both loved it
I adored Alice
played by Mia Wasikowska
and
Johnny Depp was the perfect Mad Hatter
{have you seen it?}


"Tied round the neck of the bottle was a paper label,
with the words "DRINK ME"
beautifully printed on it in large letters."

{Alice}

Hi Koralee! YES!! I just saw it with MY daughter, and son, and a few friends! One in our group thought it was just "o.k.", but the rest of us LOVED it! I just posted today about it (and other things) today! Can't wait for the DVD!.. And Johnny Depp.. LOVE him, but I don't know HOW he does it! He keeps coming out with one movie, then another, and another.... I can't keep up with him! (But I'll do the best I can!) ~tina

Wendy said...

Now I want to go see the movie! I love the story board you made.

My family went and saw it last week in 3D - I LOVED it! It's so wonderfully wonderful, in every way...I feel a tea party coming on...now, if only I could get Johnny Depp to come! Hmmm, now wouldn't that be something?

Hi Sweet Koralee!
Oh how I adore this collage of your darling daughter.
I haven't seen the movie.
Can you believe Greg and I are bad about NOT going to the movies.
My sister is always hounding us about going to movies that she loves.
Last movie we went to was It's Complicated and before that...we had not gone to a movie in forever!
I ADORE Johnny Depp...what a legend!
I can imagine he was wonderful!
Love your pictures as always Koralee...you are quite simply amazing.
What a magical mom you must be!
I know you and your adorable daughter have so much fun together!
xxooxx
Luv 2 you! :o)

She's so lovely, just like her Mom ~

I haven't get to watch it but I'm sure I'll be falling head over heels over Johnny Depp once again. Love all the whimsical characters (from Edward scissorhands, charlic and the chocolate factory etc) he starred as!
