I didn't get a chance to share this yet, but I was selected as a designer for The Studio Challenges blog earlier this month. :) I am so excited to be a part of this great team and today I am sharing my first layout. 

The October 23rd challenge is a Tic TacToe board; choose any line and include those items in a layout.

I selected the top row across for my layout. 

the fabulous cut file is Make A Wreath created by Juliana at 17turtles. I used a wood grain based paper to cut this and filled in the leaves with scraps of patterned paper and washi tape. 

a little nest of sorts was made of twine around this cute flair button, I also added twine around the wreath for added dimension and detail. Some drops of gold, sheer, and cork colored mists were added for a little shimmer and interest. 

woodgrain pp: Simple Stories, other pp: My Mind's Eye
washi tape
button twine: Papertrey Ink
enamel dots: Simple Stories
mists: gold (Bo Bunny), Sheer (Heidi Swapp), and cork (Tattered Angels)
cut file: 17turtles
wood piece: AC
