Need help with my 2 yo dd please help

My question is how do you deal with a 2 yo who wont go to sleep for nap or bed time?

My 2 yo dd has been giving me and dh a very hard time to the point where last night she wouldn't go to bed till almost 11 at night. She has a very good schedule and doesn't eat anything sweet or sugary before bed and always gets something for a snack before bed. We relax and have a good routine before bed.

Lately nothing we do is helping we have tried everything from taking toys away, music that she listens to while she is going to sleep, everything taken away. Then we tried timeout, ignoring her ( she doesn't cry she just tries to get out of bed and keep her eyes open ), taking her out of bed and us putting her in bed, Ive waited in there with her, tried to explain why she needs to sleep,  having her put her toys/ stuffed animals out of the room and getting in bed and a couple other things.

We are just getting so frustrated and don't know what to do can anyone help us or have any other ideas. Thank you ahead of time for any ideas or thoughts.
