Those Dollies are making me loose sleep!!

And I love it!! -- well - not the tired feeling I will have tomorrow - BUT
the FUN I had doing this layout challenge!

( I think I am hooked on challenges now - SO WATCH OUT! and get me some No-Doze!)

You can check out the challenge on their AWESOME Blog:

Basically - make a layout using Olive Green / Purple / Cream - that's it!

Soooo ..... Here I go!  I pulled out my scrap crap in those colors last night.

Here is the pile of goodies - I call it "All that and a Bag of Chips!" 















Well - I didn't end up using everything - but then I did end up using some other elements that called to me while I was creating! Olive Vine Glimmer Mist was one of those items - of course!


Here is a layout with 2 photos - each of me with one of my 2 wonderful sons.  These are actually from Christmas 2007 - but I loved our smiles in them and held on to scrap them until I could figure out what I wanted to do with them.





















I am very pleased with the results - Let me know how you like the finished entry for this challenge!

Here are some close ups and details:















I covered chipboard letters with paper, and inked them - oh - I didn't have an "N" left in the set -so I "modified" an "M" and the last "S" is from a different set of letters too.















Can you see the purple mesh?  I was from a bag of onions and I've saved it for a few months until I found the right Layout for it -- YES, I am a SCRAP-A-HOLIC - but that is why they call it "Scrapbooking"  right? LOL!
















OK - last close up - the one flower looks yellow - but it is actually cream.  The crinkly Green frame was fun to make and distress, oh - and I've had those beads for a while and I'm so happy I got to use them!

Thanks for looking! Now it is time for bed!
