Challenge #115

Anything Goes POSITIVE with the Opt. Twist of 

Design a Creation Inspired By


This year's goal is to take a look at the things around us that can inspire us in our creative journeys. As such, if you would like to participate in the optional twist this month, we want you to Design a Creation Inspired By a TIC/TAC/TOE BOARD.
Did you play TIC/TAC/TOE as a child? Maybe you still do. The fun thing about TIC/TAC/TOE is that you can adapt it to play in different ways. For example, the game can be adapted for coming up with different ideas to add to your card or project. If you haven't played a TIC/TAC/TOE challenge before it is a pretty easy concept to follow. Simply create a project using any three items listed below in a row--across, down or diagonally, it is up to you. For example, you might choose to work with the items in the first row across--feminine, buttons or bling, and something floral. Or maybe you'll choose to use all the items in one of the diagonals--vintage, add texture or dimension, and florals.
Thanks so much to Carole who designed the board for this challenge:
If you want to follow the optional twist this month, be sure to play along with us. It is time to show the world how random chance has inspired you in your creative journey. We look forward to seeing the different combinations, you all come up with!
