Entry for Pink Stamper Design Team Challenge

I was just getting my creative juices flowing when I came across the recent challenge posted by Robyn from "My Pink Stamper" to compete for one of the positions available for her design team! WOW...what an accomplishment that would be for me...I have never been on a Designing Team and it would definitely be an honor to design for her...She stated she wanted us to use her favorite (3) colors: Pink, Green, Brown and a optional color of our own optional color was tan for the background of my 12x12 page layout.
I want to go into 2011 with a positive mindset so I selected my theme to be built around a stamp that says:
"Take Time to Enjoy The Simple Things in Life" and my favorite cartridge is "Create A Critter" here is how my recipe came together for this layout:
Background paper 12x12 from s.e.i (tan straw)
Pink & Green & Brown: Bazzill Paper
Border @ top: My Minds Eye-cut 2"x12"trimmed with Martha Stewart edge border "Spring" punch
Tag from:Tags, Bags, Boxes & More cartridge
brown tag cut at 4 1/4", pink tag cut at 4"..
stamped with chocolate chip ink from stampin' up
Photo placement card: green cut @ 4 1/2x6 1/2", pink overlay card cut @ 4 1/4"x6 1/4"
ribbon used on both tag & photo card purchased at Joann's fabrics
Create A Critter cartridge was used to cut grass, & turtle both at 4", the pink shell on turtle was also cut at 4"
Butterfly-store purchased embellshment
Turtle was outlined with White Gelly-Roll pen, Face was stamped from Peachy Keen everyday character face assortment...used 1 3/8" and colored in eyes w/white gelly-roll pen.
