Altered Alice Chapter 2 Challenge - Week 3: Hall of Doors

"There was not a moment to be lost: away went Alice like the wind, and was just in time to hear it say, as it turned a corner, `Oh my ears and whiskers, how late it's getting!' She was close behind it when she turned the corner, but the Rabbit was no longer to be seen: she found herself in a long, low hall, which was lit up by a row of lamps hanging from the roof.

There were doors all round the hall, but they were all locked; and when Alice had been all the way down one side and up the other, trying every door, she walked sadly down the middle, wondering how she was ever to get out again."
     -- Chapter 1, Alice's Adventures in Wonderland
This month's challenge is to use a door or doors, and preferably for the door or doors to open and close so we can see what lays beyond! While it is not required that your project include Alice in Wonderland, we do encourage it. If your project features Wonderland you will get two chances in the prize drawing instead of one!
I am thrilled to announce that The Octopode Factory is our March sponsor! We are celebrating because Lily has moved into the world of rubber! That's right - RUBBER STAMPS! Lily started with her quirky digital images, and she has gifted the design team members with some of her wonderful Wonderland digital sets. Most of the digital images we will be using are those that are now available in rubber,
One lucky winner will win a $30 gift certificate for digital images from The Octopode Factory's Etsy store!

HURRY UP and ENTER by Friday, March 25 at 8 p.m. Eastern time (GMT -5:00) and a winner will be announced on Sunday, March 27. Show us your DOORS!
Now for my entry. This was a fun and challenging  for me because it's not my usual style, but it turned out to be really fun. I hope you like them as much as I do.

The Door to Wonderland shows Alice's eye peeking out through it. Thanks Lynne for you help in the computer part on how to make this work.
Thanks for stopping by.
