Challenge YOUrself #23 Tic Tac Toe Board ~ "BFF's"

Another FUN CHALLENGE is up on the Challenge YOUrself Blog!!  November brings a Tic Tac Toe board, for your "Scrapping Pleasure!"  Just pick a column or row - up and down, side to side, or diagonally, and include those elements in your layout - also being sure to include a PHOTO OF YOU too!  All Challenge Details and Prize info can be found on The Challenge YOUrself Blog!

Now let's play some Tic Tac Toe!  For my DT Inspiration Layout, I selected the middle column, because who doesn't LOVE "Friends" and "Bling!"

And here is my DT Inspiration Layout for you:

Where do I begin with this layout?  First, let me talk about the photo.  This is a picture of my good friend Janice and I.  We met in 2008, at a scrapbook weekend retreat, about 3 hours from our homes. We happened to sit at the same round table during a lunch break.  I noticed her last name on her name tag and asked her if she knew a plumber, named Joe with the same last name.  She said, "Yes, he is my husband!"  We've been great friends, scrapbook retreat roomies, and BFF's ever since!! :-)

I love this photo of the 2 of us!  When I saw this paper collection at my Local Scrapbook Store - Scrap-a-Doodle Doo,, I fell in love with it, and knew right away that this would be the perfect collection for this photo!. The colors, along with the gold accents were just unique, and nothing like I had in my "STASH."  I asked the wonderful owner, Stephanie, to order "One of everything" for me, as I knew I just had to have it!

Here are some close ups of all the little details and the wonderful bits and pieces:

Thanks so much for stopping by.  I hope I've inspired you to play along with us at the Challenge YOUrself Blog this month!  This Tic Tac Toe Board was LOTS of FUN - go ahead, give it a try!
