Beyond Grey Challenges - Oodles of Doodles

Ok ladies Check it out. "Oodles of Doodles". Not something
I have done before. Stressed over it and thought I can't do this.
Wrong. I did it and it wasn't as hard as I thought it would be.
Kalindi chose what we would do for this challenge over at 
Beyond Grey Challenges and now we have all done them it is
worth popping over and having a look. See how the other girls
have interpreted this challenge. Check out the awesome work
 for ideas. While you are there join in the challenge and have 
some fun doing this one.

This LO is of my beautiful son Riley at 4 year old kinder. 
When I first started to think of this challenge I had two things 
in mind.  Doodling while talking on the phone and my boys
always doodling when ever they have pen and paper. I then had
this photo in mind I new straight away where I would go with it.  

I have used white cards stock and chose just two slick writer to do
my "Oodles of  Doodles" with. Black and blue. The papers I used
were Craft works Scrap booking Shaped Mats. The embellishments 
were Crayola chip boards. Lettering was Basic craft letters. Wording
was from Paper Xtra rub on. 

I have also entered this in the Scrap job #2 Dudling Challenge
