White with One

I've decided to play along at 'White with One' this month  and the challenge was to use 'White + Olive Green + Twine'. I really love this combo! The die-cut paper I've used is an old one from Crate paper and was just the perfect colour. The doily was a find from one of the Op shops. 
My DD had her Year 11 Ball a couple of weekends ago and I was just so happy when I got at least one decent photo to scrap. Lol!! Teenagers aren't the most cooperative beings around. :)
A little flower cluster. The leaves were made using my Martha Stewart frond punch.
A close up of the title and twine bow.
Another little cluster with an added crocheted flower by me. :)
I had so much fun doing this challenge and I think I might become a regular at White with One.
Hope you've had a great week so far. Bring on Friday!!
Thanks for the visit and for your lovely comments. They make my day.
Until next time.

Absolutely beautiful and elegent layout Marelize. I saw someone elses take on this challenge and olive and white it gorgeous and you have both done the colours justice. Your DD is looking so gorgeous in her prom dress and im sure in years to come she will adore these pics!!!. I love the lace and the doily (amazing what you can find in the op shop!). The flowers and leaves (that punch is one of my fave's of MS) are stunning and really like that you have kept them minimal. I love the quote and is perfect with your layout. Gorgeous work Marelize.

Love this Marelize! Yup I'd also like to become a regular at White with One - at first I thought it sounded boring but the more I saw of the layouts I've seen just how gorgeous a simple colour combo can be & I really am sold on them. Yours is dainty & delicate & I love that little frond punch, the lace & scattered pearls - and using a real doily is just too cool!!
