It's another challenge...

...I'm enjoying doing these challenges. Sometimes when you hit a creative block or feel your layouts are beginning to look the same it's good to push yourself, or if you just fancy joining in some blogging/scrapping fun.

This is another Design Dollies one. Each week they lay down 3 challenge; a sketch/a colour combo/ and an elements one.
Colour combo: bluewhitegreenbrown.
Sketch as shown over at Deisgn Dollies: my photo is landscape 'stead portrait.
Element is animals: have used animal embossing plate on the green square, little cheeky monkey in the corner of photo, title stamped onto animal paper. Not sure ants count!
Well this week I have gone for the TRIFECTA which features all 3.
Check out this weeks here:

Hurry it finishes saturday at midnight.

My entry...
some close ups:
(these brads are so lifelike I want to swipe them off the paper LOL)
...the photo used is definately amongst my favourite for this year. I love that it shows Alfies cheeky playful side, and his favourite thing to do at the moment-Invade my craft area.
I Really don't mind but he will run off with my metal edged ruler (he will not be fooled by the flexi ones we keep trying to give him) and inkpads (which he opens then quickly throws to the floor when he sees us, thank goodness for laminate flooring).
After feeling nervous really enjoyed this challenge and can't wait to do another.
Thanks for looking.

wow, i love the ant brads!!! love the layout too, the white space around it looks great, i always feel the need to fill them and it prob ruins it, but it works on here, well done.

What a great job with the Trifecta and your little ants too cute, I agree with you re: the laminate flooring, my son got to my floors with the ink pad just recently. Thanks for playing and congratulations on a fantastic entry. Love Mel (the Dollies)
