New Year, New Challenges!

I'm ready to kick off this new year with plenty of inspired creativity and this week's Tic Tac Toe Challenge has loads of inspiration!

This is TTTC board #30, put together by the fabulous Nicole Watt, and it's dreamy...


I think all of these elements offer so many possibilities and that's what I love about the Tic Tac Toe Challenge. This week I knew I wanted to use some items from Pebbles' Girl Squad line, but I wasn't sure where to start. However, that's the beauty of this challenge -- take what you have and see where the inspiration takes you!

At first glance Girl Squad seems pigeon-holed into the genres of clean, graphic and "young". All good things, but I wanted to see where Wood, Lace and Floral fit in. So, here's my interpretation:

Diagonal: Floral, Lace, and Wood

I was also inspired by the January Viva La Verve Sketch Challenge -- it helped me build a cohesive design. All the colors, icons and sentiments in the Girl Squad papers, shapes + tiny puffy stickers make me think of my pre-teen niece, so I think I'll send this one to her next week. Middle school can be tough, and who couldn't use a little encouragement once in a while?!

Thanks for stopping by and I sure hope you'll give this week's Tic Tac Toe Challenge a try!!
