Wonderful girl .. with Scrap Our Stash

I am now starting to have a lot of fun getting back into my scrapping and checking out what challenges are around each month to help get the creativity flowing. This month's challenge at Scrap Our Stash was right up my alley.

Wonderful girl

The challenge is a Tic Tac Toe one ..

On first glance I was like "oh yeah this will be an easy one". Nope. I had already gathered the materials for my next layout. As in prior to finding a challenge. Gold was not amongst them. If anything, I had a lot of silver products out lol. I don't have any charms, nor shamrocks, so, lol, I could only use the one line, the bottom one. Now, I'm a reformed Crate Paper junkie. Seriously. I have friends who can attest that I used to religiously buy every single collection as they were released, whether I liked them or not, and one year ended up with three of the one Christmas collection and I don't even 'do' Christmas! Thing is, I have started having a huuuuuuge clean out of my stash and have culled more than two-thirds of my patterned paper and what is remaining is, for the most part, now colour co-ordinated. So I had to dig on in and just start hunting me some Crate Paper!

Some close ups ..

My mini alphas are Echo Park, the flairs are Flutterby Designs, and the Crate Paper is my brown strip of patterned paper. I wanted to give it a lift and texture so die-cut one of Tim Holtz's rosette flowers to get the accordion, scalloped, perforated look.

If you're interested in giving this challenge a go you can find all the details you need on the Scrap Our Stash blog HERE.

Happy scrapping!
