Tic Tac Toe Challenge

Hi's me again!
2 posts in one day!  It's Monday and I really should be cleaning my house, but I am so enjoying my new E2 and I just want to play all day.  But, somehow I don't think the "cleaning fairy" is going to be popping by any time soon, so I'll post this and then I'm off to find my toilet brush....sigh...........

This month's challenge on the Cricut Circle Blog really looked like fun, so I thought I would play along!
The challenge shows a Tic Tac Toe grid with instructions in each of the 9 sections.  You chose a "winning" line and follow the instructions in those 3 sections.  My "winner" included the following....

1.  A Sun Shape
2.  Ric Rac
3.  A Flower Shape

I decided to work on a scrapbook layout since I am so far behind on my scrapping.
I incorporated the Tic Tac Toe grid into my layout.

Recipe for this page:
* PLAY title is cut from Live Simply at 2.25 inches.  I cut the bottom layer twice and used pop dots between the 2 layers.  I used a white gel pen to add stitching lines around the letters.
*The flower is also from Live Simply and is cut at 3 inches.  I added Stickles to the center for some bling.
*I created the journaling pocket by using a MS punch on one edge of the card stock, then folding and adhering it into a pocket.  Ric Rac and a flower complete the pocket.

Recipe for this page:
*Sun is from Simply Charmed, cut at 3.5 inches.
*Flower is from Live Simply and is cut at 3 inches.
*I used green Ric Rac to create a Tic Tac Toe grid.

Thanks for stopping by, I always enjoy your visits and look forward to your sweet comments.
And, I'm sad to say that I MUST get off this computer and get busy cleaning my house NOW.
....soooo....where did I leave that toilet brush..........

Until next time,
