Are you up for the challenge?

I'm back!!! We got home mid week and I am playing catch up in a really big way. We had a great time back in Alberta visiting Family and Friends. I have to say though, it sure is nice to be home. Driving 12 hours with a 2 and 3 year old is tiring. They sure were troopers though.
I even got some scrapbooking done while I was out there!!! I'll share some layouts in the next few weeks.
Now onto a layout I can show you! The May Trifecta challenge is up over at the Design Dollies. Lets recap shall we???
The fabulous colour combo:
Remember you can choose 3 out of the 4 colours.

Then we had fancy folds element challenge

and lastly we had the fabulous sketch Karen B designed for us:
and this is what I came up with:

I ended up using all 4 colours. I used GCD Studios Animal Crackers line as well as a Hambly Woodgrain overlay in brown. I received a ginormous box of GCD Studios goodies when I got home last week and had to play around with all of the fab goodies. I thought is was perfect since the photo I used was from the zoo.
I flipped the sketch this time and then put my title to the side and of course added a pleated (folded) edge to the oval.
Now you fabulous Dollie players are very lucky. This week we are giving you an entire extra week to get your entries in so come play along with us. You will have until midnight EST June 5 2011. So come join the fun and who knows you might be our next winner of one of the fabulous prizes!!!!
I also want to mention the latest challenge over at These Are A Few Of My Favourite Things. We have the Fav Photo challenge going on. You still have time to play along over HERE for that one.
I also want to mention that my other DT Practical Scrappers is having a great little giveaway!!! Did someone say kit??? Go on over THERE to get your name in for a chance to win that!!!

Last note... I got my big box of goodies from Urban Swank!!! Lots of luscious, gorgeous, fabulous Urban Lily goodies. I am going to play with them tonight. So stay tuned because I will starting to post over on that blog too : ) Now the fabulous DT has started showing off their new projects so hop on over there and say HI!
