White With 1 January challenge

I've been scrapping with my friend Alz Callcott, this weekend, and after a weekend of making layouts, and feeling finished, she challenged me to another challenge. "Do the White With 1 challenge" she said. "It's green, and you know how much I hate green", I said. She said, "do the challenge, and set yourself a time limit to do it". I said, "Ok, I'll do it in 1 hour". Game on. I did the challenge, and I did it in 1 hour and 1 minute - go me, lol.
I am glad Alz challenged me to the challenge, as I have been wanting to scrap this photo from the Singapore Zoo,  for a while now, and without her pushing me I wouldn't have done it. I still hate green though.
So I used a Kaisercraft die to cut out some leaves, (purchased that over the weekend, when we went shopping - shhhhh!) Perfect die for this layout. I used another sizzix die from Alz stash, and voila, I had a layout on my hands.
I also added a Charms Creations DIY map marker to my layout, which I stamped on then sprayed with glimmermist. The flairs are from D-lish Scraps
I am so very pleased with the way this layout turned out, even though I hate green, and even though I did it so quickly - less thought more just doing!
Thanks for looking at my layout, and for any comments you may leave.
